“Here's to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes… the ones who see things differently — they're not fond of rules… You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them, but the only thing you can't do is ignore them because they change things… they push the human race forward, and while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius, because the ones who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do.” – Steve Jobs
“It's more fun to be a pirate than join the Navy.” – Steve Jobs
I confess. I'm a disruptor. I'm the one looking to f*ck sh*t up (in a good way). Show me the way its always been done and I'll do my best to do the opposite.
Not just because I'm rebellious (although, admittedly, that's part of it) but because something tells me there's a better way and I have no choice but to try and find it.
Can you relate? Are you a disruptor? misfit? troublemaker?
Well, good on you! You probably know exactly what it feels like to make the impossible a reality, and to delight your customers by doing the work for them that no one else had the vision to do.
You probably also know what it feels like to be dismissed as a crazy person by your peers and competitors (aka the haters). Unfortunately, negativity from the naysayers is only one of many challenges you have to deal with as an innovator.
Innovative companies are the most at risk for legal issues.
Booby traps abound! When you are forging a new path in your industry there are all kinds of legal issues that can pounce on you like a cheetah attacking their prey.
Don't let your company be devoured by a cheetah!
Watch this video to learn the five steps you need to take in order to prevent major legal issues that will surely slow you down. I also share my own experience being questioned by a government agency simply because I run my business differently than my competitors.
