First Mover Advantage

A connection on LinkedIn asked "What qualities do Jeff Bezos or Richard Branson or Bill Gates or Mark Cuban or Barbara Corcoran have that most entrepreneurs don't have?"  

My answer is that they were successful primarily for vision.  

They were one of the first in the markets they succeed in—or at least they entered before the field got crowded. 

We are in the Attention Scarcity Age. There are too many entrepreneurs competing for too little available attention.  First movers / leaders in any field have a huge advantage.
