The MCP approach to business growth is a great philosophy.  What’s your business future look like, good, bad or is the jury out? Whatever your outlook, you cannot afford to stand and be swept away by inaction.

In this episode of ‘I Hate Numbers’ I talk about looking at your business future in terms of growth.  I introduce the MCP approach to driving forward and growing your business. To be fair MCP is also needed if you want your business to stand still.

What is MCP?

MCP is not some new medication or drug, MCP is shorthand for

  • Mindset
  • Capacity
  • Performance

As words they mean nothing, or different things to different people. Let me give you a flavour of each, the podcast delves deeper

Mindset: It affects how we tackle anything, and spoiler alert, we need a combo

Capacity: Capability is another way to describe this, and no one business has it all.

Performance: Be less dog, do not chase your tail. Check & manage your progress


Set your Northern Star

You need to set your own Northern Star for your business. Your Northern Star represents your business destination, your business goals.

MCP is nothing unless you know what your Northern Star is. MCP is there to help you reach that destination point.

Good to Know

It is largely in your hands as to how your business and financial story unfolds.

This doesn’t mean that prosperity is guaranteed.  It would be wonderful if I could guarantee that. However, not taking MCP on board gives you that edge, that extra opportunity.

Do not over stress if your business growth does not go in a straight line. All of us in business make mistakes, if you have not then you are extremely fortunate or telling lies.

What Next

Grab a coffee, make yourself comfortable, sit back and listen.
