Well, I’ve gone and done it. I finally recorded another podcast episode!
Today, I share a discussion between Perrin and I on the importance of being unique with your business. In particular, we have a more in-depth discussion about being the ONE, as I wrote about in my last blog post here.
This is an interesting topic that may seem pretty obvious to some people, while others may be completely oblivious to the subject.
In my opinion, to build a defensible business that can stand the test of time, that business needs to be doing something unique.
In particular, here’s a few of the things we discussed and referenced throughout the podcast:
A home for entrepreneurs turned investors
A hodgepodge of investing, startup, and online business discussions
- high-value email newsletters
- tips on sites for sale
- a podcast
- networking opportunities
- with more planned for the future
- What does it mean to be the one?
- Restaurant examples that are unique
- Why niche sites are extremely difficult to build a completely unique business from
- How Long Tail Pro was able to stand out from Market Samurai and other competitors in order to capture market share
- Discussion of uniqueness and marketing of NerdFitness.com
- How Brian Lam made WireCutter.com thrive with a basic information site
- Short update on my Amazon FBA business, and why its been so successful in the first 30 days (hint: it has some unique features)
- Why it’s difficult to be the one with Kindle books
- 5 Strategies to help you build a defensible business
Overall, it was great to get back behind the microphone and share some of my thoughts on the podcast!

Finally, stay tuned for my next blog post…I’ll be covering my new Amazon FBA business in depth. I’ve only been selling for about 30 days, but the success is honestly starting to blow my mind. I’ll give you the inside scoop in a few days.
