We interviewed Dr. Larry Stybel about how he created a global career management firm. His company operates in 40 US cities and 25 countries.

You may not be in this industry, but here is why you should pay attention to this interview: in 1987 he was not sure what business to start. He was confused. But he was a great observer. He did not have a creative idea. But, he noticed how innovative ideas in his field are moving from one city to the other. His city was always behind in adapting to this new methods and ideas. So he took advantage of this and positioned himself for the time when the new wave hit his city. This is a lesson for those looking for opportunities.

If you are not the first one in your industry, be the first one in your city.
