Why Reinvent the Wheel?

Dear Friend and Fellow Entrepreneur,

You’ve probably heard the mantra: “Be original. Be creative. Invent. Innovate.” But in Dan Kennedy’s Book, No B.S. Guide to Succeeding in Business By Breaking All The Rules, he suggests there is great value in a different approach. Instead of reinventing the wheel, study what works and replicate it.

Originality has its place, but proven methods often yield better results. You don’t have to invent a new product or service to be successful. Sometimes, improving on existing products or services or tweaking them can lead to wild success.

Look at McDonald's. Ray Kroc didn’t invent the hamburger or the fast-food restaurant. What he did was study the efficient system the McDonald brothers had created and saw the potential to replicate and scale it. By improving on their methods, standardizing the process, and creating a franchise model, he built one of the most successful fast-food chains in the world. Kroc didn’t invent something new; he perfected an existing concept and executed it brilliantly.

No B.S. Myth Busting

Dan Kennedy, one of the greatest copywriters of all time, is not one to mince words. His unconventional, contrarian views often challenge the status quo. In his latest book, 'No B.S. Guide to Succeeding in Business By Breaking ALL THE RULES, 'he kicks off by debunking 13 common myths and lies that many of us have come to accept as truths.

As I read through each of these, I remember thinking, this is really good stuff! So many of us have bought into this universally accepted B.S., and so many suffer because of it.

In today’s blog, we’ll review all 13, and I’ll share my thoughts on why Dan added them to the list. Enjoy!

  1. Think positive, and life will be wonderful. Attitude is everything. While a positive attitude is great, it's not a magic bullet. You need skills, strategies, and action to achieve success. Just thinking positively won't get you anywhere without effort and the right tactics.
