Disrupt the market?

It would be nice to completely revolutionize an industry, but, to say the least, that's a bit challenging. Instead, it may be better to think of ways to simply disrupt the market, to be a leader and push the industry forward. This will be risky (as any endeavor in business is), the first option may not be the one to stick with, but it will be a step in the right direction.

What does this look like?

  • Learn as much as you can about what the industry is doing. Knowing what other businesses are doing and the tools they are using will help to make new connections and combinations for tools and ideas.
  • Be up to date on the latest trends. Knowing the trends will help to shed light on possible opportunities and, much like the first point, will help to foster new connections and ideas.
  • Talk with your team. Two heads are better one and there may be a perspective visible by someone on the team that helps to propel the company forward.

What to remember: Never stop learning, researching, or pushing to get out of your comfort zone.
