Creating a Personal Monopoly

The barriers of starting a business are lower than ever, and entrepreneurs are taking advantage of that every day. Yet for many businesses, it may feel like the competition in the marketplace is at its highest. That's where creating a personal monopoly comes into play as a crucial aspect of making it big in business.

Glen Carlson breaks the common misconception that influential people are where they are because they are more competitive than everyone else and reveals that, in fact, success lies in the ability to discover creative ways to avoid the competition entirely.

Glen uncovers how the act of truly differentiating yourself is anti-competitive, creating a market dynamic whereby your competition becomes irrelevant. He provides the key steps to creating a personal monopoly where your products or services become the only choice for your specific customer.

Participants will discover how to:
- discover and sell their unique value
- increase their credibility to increase sales
- become highly influential in their industry
- create a personal monopoly and eradicate the competition
