So someone you know launched a competitive product or worse yet, used your ideas to launch a competitive product. Or your co-worker threw you under the bus in front of your boss or you've made a terrible mistake and just got your head bitten off by your supervisor.
We've all been there.
Instead of getting mad or even or skulking away in a corner to hide in shame, take this opportunity to elevate your product or your personal brand. Use competition or copycatting as ammunition to launch a better, badder version of your product. Use mistakes, failures and tough relationships to learn how to create a better version of you.
