This episode starts a conversation about setting goals and serving others by being the best fit for your customers. We talk with Nicky Billou and hear his take on why selling our services is a way to serve others. When we offer a product of value, it improves the productivity or life of our customers. Thus, failing to let them know about it is a disservice.

Grow Through Setting Goals

It is easy to create a business and then sort of coast. We get a few stories of these situations in our discussion with Nicky. However, that is not the best use of our time and talent. We should grow by setting goals to reach more customers that will find value in our product or service. That is the ultimate win-win. We want customers, and they want a product or service that we provide better than the competition. This mindset is not as much about being number one as finding and embracing your niche.
