A Smaller Niche Doesn’t Mean A Smaller Impact: How Narrowing Her Scope Helped Deb Blum Add Bigger Value
As entrepreneurs, and especially as women, most of us have a deep desire to ‘save the world’ and be of value to others, and that’s beautiful, but it can make niching down incredibly difficult.
The problem is, narrowing down the scope of what we do is the key to running a successful business that doesn’t consume every waking moment of our days, so we have to resist the urge to be everything to everyone.
However, that can be easier said than done. How can we possibly go deep on just a few things, and where do we begin to define what those few activities are?
In this episode, Founder of Age Awesomely, Deb Blum and I discuss how pinpointing her niche actually allowed her to provide more value to others.
“The information world is saturated, and that doesn’t mean you can’t stand out, but it does mean you won’t stand out if you don’t choose to build businesses around a specific problem people have.”
Three Things You’ll Learn in This Episode
- How to get clarity in our businesses
How can we get so clear on who we are and what we offer, that it’s easy for us to communicate that to the world?
- Why having a massive scope sets us up for poor results
We tend to think serving a small niche means smaller results, but could the opposite be true?
- How to avoid building a business that depends on our constant involvement
Does having a niched-down business mean we have to be present in it at all times?
