๐Ÿฅ‡ The unfair advantage

Short Essays

๐ŸŽ™๏ธ I love listening to podcasts. I listen to one of them when I go for a walk or during the commute. I have some episodes playing in my ears all the time. So, recently I listened to the “Startup” podcast by Alex Bloomberg, which I highly recommend if you haven’t listened to it yet.

And there, he went on to talk about the “unfair advantage” and why it’s vital in the corporate culture and professional life.

๐Ÿงจ The unfair advantage is an interesting concept that can be a personal quality that makes you a department head. It can also be a team quality that gets you your first million dollars.

But it always has to be there – to grow and be exceptional.

๐Ÿ—ฟ And I wondered, what’s the advantage we have at our company? At first glance, we don’t seem to have anything out of the ordinary going on, nothing special. But when I looked at the people, I realized that we have the most amazing people working for us.

One of my partners, Jean-Paul, is a sales genius. He can talk with anyone and befriend them immediately. He is such an easy-going person that people trust because of his ability to envision any product.

Jakob has experience in managing a large enterprise. He has built and sold his previous company and knows how to lead, tackle any challenge, and bring everyone to success.

๐Ÿ‘จ๐Ÿ’ป Our clients trust us to deliver because we have proven to them time and time again that we can, that we have the most remarkable minds.

We don’t have a sales department, and we don’t do cold emails, but still, people come to us – because we build a partnership with each of them and grow together. In return, they recommend us to others.

๐Ÿ‘€ The problem with unfair advantage is that you can’t use it until you see it. I mean, you do something that happens to be very easy to you, and you think, “I guess it’s just as easy for everyone else.” But that’s the thing; it’s probably not that easy for everyone – that it’s just your unfair advantage.
