Lurker here... first post, so be nice. :-)
How do all of you think about competition? Feeling honestly depressed today as I go down a well-worn path:
Does this happen to you all?
How do you keep it from discouraging you?
Does it stop you from pursuing your idea?
I explained this to my wife, and she pointed out there's UPS and Fedex, Zillow and Trulia and RedFin, etc. Her point is there's lots of successful businesses that are out there that own a portion of a market, and I don't have to own it all. I agree with that on principle, but don't you all feel like you should be working on a problem that you are solving in a unique way? If not, why not?
Even though I thought of this idea independently, I still kinda feel like a copycat if it's not any different than how they're solving the problem.
Appreciate any thoughts.
