Bloody Startup Competition!

Last night I had a moment of frustration and a moment of “do I really want to continue with http://www.donttell.com.au?”;

Why?

The idea for sharing outfits, searching them and browsing them came to me over a year ago but I didn’t execute properly and it’s only now that things are really moving forward. Unfortunately it looks like someone else executed properly within that year and have moved themselves a few steps ahead of where we are with Don’t Tell.

Everything I read says “be the first in your category” which we would have been had I executed properly a year ago. Now it looks like we’re second.

Not to worry though, I’m going to push on because we do have slightly different positioning to our competitor. I just need to get it into my head that competition is healthy – in footy do you just lay down and stop playing if another team turns up?

Each day so far is new ground for me so I’m learning, learning, learning. I wonder what will happen tomorrow.
