Good business people make good business decisions most of the time. “I am my only competition” is what no one who runs business should say. Last time I checked, no one is creating anything that doesn’t already exist in some shape, form, or fashion.
Email is the same thing as mailing a letter as in Instagram is the same thing as scrapbooking. We use to drink water out of the faucet, now we drink it out the bottle. Nothing is created from scratch but everything is reinventing the wheel.
If you’re in business you have competition.
Google search engine competition is Bing and Yahoo.
The Waldorf competition is the Four Seasons and Ritz Carlton.
Sprint competition is T-Mobile and Verizon.
iPhone competition is Samsung.
Dells competition is HP so please miss me with “I don’t have competition” speech.
You can rephrase it and say “Motel 6 is not the competition of the Waldorf” which would be a true statement. Both are hotels but they serve a different caliber of clientele.
