Why It’s So Hard to Pick a Niche – A Discussion With Matt Johnson

Niching down is by far the most effective way to make more money, while simultaneously making our lives easier, so it’s no surprise why so many business experts are all for narrowing our scopes. 

The problem is, however, most of us already know this, but when it comes to actually carving out a niche, we’re more than a little hesitant. 

What is it that’s stopping us from niching down? Is there ever a good reason to forgo finding a niche and simply aim to serve everybody?

In this episode, producer of the show and host of the MicroFamous podcast, Matt Johnson shares why most solopreneurs are reluctant to niche down, and why we need to do it anyway!

“We tend to think there aren’t enough people in our niche so we avoid going deeper, but real experts will always suggest drilling down.”

-Dana Malstaff
