The world is a much techier place, and has sparked a gold rush in the online business world.
As I’m sitting here in a coffee shop writing this post, I can’t help but notice the amount of people writing code or drafting new blog posts on their laptops.
I live in Austin, Texas, which is a huge tech city, so this is a pretty common sight anyway.
Yet I can’t stop thinking back to even just a few years ago when it was more of a surprise to run into somebody else coding or blogging. Now it’s just business as usual.
I’ve been in online business for about 6 years and have watched my numbers on social media, my email list and total amount of customers grow.
But being in this coffee shop today and actually witnessing this small group of people working on their laptops gave me a new kind of perspective about just how many people are trying to make a name for themselves out there. It was a much more impactful visual than seeing some of my own numbers.
I saw real people who do what I do.
As I sat back, all I could think is “how the hell am I supposed to stand out?”
