Entreverted businesses avoid competition by creating categories of their own. They offer unique products and services that customers cannot find elsewhere. Since they don’t sell what everyone else does, they don’t compete through costly price wars, marketing gimmicks, and advertising schemes. Entreverted businesses range in size from multi-billion dollar giants to solo entrepreneurs who build their empires after hours and on the weekends. They don’t peddle fads, pitch gimmicks, or succumb to trends. They offer unique value.
Entreverted leaders understand that creativity is not bestowed at birth but learned, developed, and practiced. They develop unique business concepts by practicing scientifically proven creative techniques.
Before unique businesses become mainstream, most people cannot grasp their ideas. Friends, loved ones, and mentors often dissuade creators from proceeding. Unfortunately, this is a normal occurrence but a demoralizing one none-the-less. Entreverted leaders benefit from the camaraderie of other like-minded individuals to bring their ideas to reality.
