  1. Truth.

    It’s hard being honest, especially about yourself. It takes a lot to admit, “Hey, there really isn’t anything special about us.”

    At the very least, concentrate your brand around what you do best that people want most – never mind if it’s not differentiated. But even then, it’s tough to figure out what you’re really good at. When you’re being honest.

  2. Good visual. The trick now is to answer each one of those questions!
