What We Cover in This Episode:

  • Why Larry feels it’s key to not get hung up on analyzing your competitors
  • The reasons he says when in doubt, niche down more
  • Larry’s thoughts on whether we should we be advertising our prices online
  • The ways that he differentiates Pinnacle Brands from a sea of competitors in their industry


“Differentiate yourself enough so that you can take maybe one percent, five percent, or ten percent of each of your competitors. It is a much easier task to do that.”

“I think most coaches that get into coaching often times are solving the problems that their past self has faced.”

“One thing unique about the coaching model is that you do have a built-in differentiating factor because you are unique. The way you interpret information and deliver information is unique.”

“When in doubt, niche down more. It actually makes your life way easier, in so many different ways.”
