My name is Benjamin Nabers and I’m a soccer entrepreneur.
When I was first starting out on my entrepreneurial journey…
I cared a lot about what my competition was doing.
In fact, I’d say I was pretty obsessive about it…
Every day for about 1 year I studied my competitors websites, prices and marketing material.
It was the quickest way I was going to learn.
I would try to copy and model everything that my competitors did.
It worked well, very well…
…and it gave me a great foundation to start, but I soon realized that I was becoming them, not me.
Here’s the deal.
Modeling success is important.
Being someone else is not fulfilling.
You will constantly be comparing yourself to the next person/business.
It isn’t fun.
It made me ask myself a very important question…
“How was I going to separate myself from the pack & how can I be different”?
Instead of continuing down the path of “doing what other people do”…
I realized that I can be me.
When you do your own thing, you have zero hesitations.
Nothing is stopping you.
You aren’t worried about what competitors are doing because you are dominating your path, your way.
Not everyone is going to like me, and that’s okay :)
It allows me to live my life with more freedom knowing that I can give the best possible service to the people who are in line with my mission.
The ability to be creative is why I became an entrepreneur.
If you’re reading this, ask yourself the question.
“Am I being me, or trying to be like someone else?”
