While it’s true that you want to hone what you’re good at, it’s an incontrovertible fact that companies that didn’t just stick to their first product offering excelled most. You have to be able to see new avenues in your field and other fields to stay competitive.
There is a great book by an Entrepreneur who went into one product area and transitioned to another, It’s called, “Doing Business By the Good Book.” The author and so many others are great examples of non-tech people who were able include new technologies into their product offering or agricultural firms that moved from providing food stuffs to plastics and chemicals.
Entrepreneur Tara Reid, now a millionaire, is one of them. She was a marketing executive who created her own app without knowing how to code! There is also David Steward who began in engineering in the transportation industry but moved into tech, now owning one of the largest tech companies. Excellent examples of people who defied the niche myth and excelled. But Apple, a computer company moved into selling music (iTunes), Samsung a trading company moving into electronics and everything else; and I’d be remiss not to mention GE (General Electric), DuPont, Sony and so many more!
