"The competitor to be feared is one who never bothers about you at all, but goes on making his own business better all the time."  -Henry Ford

How much time do you spend fussing about competition? Any time is too much! That's time that could be spent focusing on your mission and your benefits and your growth. Know your competition, but don't obsess or distract yourself. They may actually be a great referral source. -Amy
