Here are what you can do to better deal with competition:

1. Survive. Don’t go out of business. Don’t make big bets and risk the whole business.

2. Spend more time talking with customers than thinking about the competition.

3. Invest time building a world class team that will be able to overcome any obstacle.

I believe that your first 12 employees will dictate the success of your business.

The best feedback you’re going to get is not from watching what your competitors are doing, it’s actually talking to your customers!
Focusing on your competitor is just such a waste of energy and time because it really doesn’t matter. There’s nothing you can do to control what they do.
