No One Likes a Copycat!
Show Notes

It's happened to me, to friends, to collaborators, and to my clients... 

And while "imitation" is supposedly the "sincerest form of flattery" (Oscar Wilde), NO ONE LIKES A COPYCAT! 

In this episode, we get into a recent (minor) horror story of my own, talk about why it's so important not to copy and paste, a few ideas on how to avoid being a copycat, and how to decrease the chances of being copied. 

We get into: 

  • What it feels like to be copied
  • Six reasons not to copycat
  • Four ideas to help you slow down and avoid copying someone 
  • Three ways to decrease your chances of being copied
  • Don't steal "Somebody's Law" 
  • ...and more!
