Episode 65: How To Monitor Your Competition (The Tech Smart Boss Way)

I’ve mentioned in previous podcast episodes that I don’t believe in paying too much to competition.  Too often as entrepreneurs, we give our competition way too much credit and waste a lot of time trying to either stay ahead of them or worry about what they are doing.  But that doesn’t mean I completely ignore them either.  I like to put a side eye on them and in this episode, I go over what types of information I try to learn from my competition and the technology that I use to do it.
