How can we make ourselves stand out from our competitors?

By:   GrowthWheel International Inc. and David Madié

When you start a business, it is often because you want to do something that has not been done in quite the same way before.

In reality, very few ideas and products are actually unique. More often, new products and services solve the same problems or fulfill the same needs as others, but in a slightly different way or with a twist.
