Finding a niche—defined as a distinct segment of the market you are in and become “known” for—is essential to business success. Too many entrepreneurs fail with offerings that are broad and undefined.
In this episode of the Go For Launch podcast, business coach Jason Treu talks about why niches are vital and how to identify yours as you evolve.
Jason is a top coach to executives, as well as a sought-after speaker and author. He’s a leading expert on social engineering, influence, persuasion, networking and leadership. At the heart of his strategy is the understanding that people and your relationships are your true “wealth.”
Jason works with experts, entrepreneurs and executives to help them get known and stand out by building key skill sets and the right relationships, creating their brand platform and purpose, and improving their business results.
His bestselling book, Social Wealth, the how-to-guide on building personal and professional relationships, has sold more than 30,000 copies and hit #1 in four business and self-help categories.
He also is a frequent contributor to publications such as Brazen Careerist, Thought Catalogue, Under30 CEO, KillerStartups, and many others.
