Many companies fail by trying to outpace or outgun established competition. But what if you start playing a different game altogether?

Whether you are a multinational corporation or two nerds in a basement, you’re chasing goals, making moves, and looking to invest your energy where it counts. We’re here to tell you that the shortest path to success often only takes one single market differentiator — a unique value proposition, or what Rick Hou calls your “Secret Sauce.”

In the past 15 years, Rick has launched startups that have either become or have been purchased by fortune 500 companies. Rick has mastered the craft of pivoting with a rapidly changing market. Learn how to identify the value you pose to your audience, avoid the pitfalls most likely to cause you to fail, and leverage your greatest strengths to grow your company with lasting impact.
