Captured Power and Time

R. Shawn McBride spoke about your capture power in business.

Folks, Shawn here, with you, talking about the concept of Captured Power and Time. If you’ve been following my materials over at McBride For Business blog or you’ve probably heard me talk about captured power. It comes up in some of my speeches as well.

What is this concept and what does it mean about time? Well, I co-authored a book called “It’s About Time” with Shannon Gregg. It’s a great guide, very quick read, about how to do more with the time you have. It’s really about prioritization and then execution on it. But one of the things that are critical to a business in executing and building a business is what I call “captured power.” It is your central value added. It is what is so strong in your business that everything builds from it.

What are people coming to you for? What value do you add to the world that is so strong everybody needs it? That is your power. That is your economic engine. And from that, whatever we build as that center, as that core, or that process of a business that is so good that people need it. Everything flows from it. And that’s where you build your tangential business and that’s where you really make the money. So we need a strong central economic engine. Some body of knowledge, some product, some service. Something that is very unique. Something that people need. And we build that economic engine and everything circles around it. And that’s where the real value is.

So what are you doing to capture that strength? What is it in your business that people really, really, really need? We start there, and we build out from there. So I use this concept called captured power to get people thinking about what strength, what power, what inner workings are so good in your business that everybody needs it? We need that. If you don’t have that in your business, if you haven’t figured that out, we’ve got a problem. We need to have something that you’re great at, that’s your unique selling proposition. Once we have that, we can build layers upon layers and make plans that really work.
