Thinking About Your Core

April 20, 2017 // R. Shawn McBride // No Comments »

How strong is your core?

No, I’m not starting an exercise blog. I’m asking about the core of your business.

In some of my blogs I talk about your captured power. That’s what you do well and what allows you to earn income and wealth. ( is the core of your essence? But this time I’m asking about the core of your business. What is the center? I believe it’s important that we understand that we have a core or central ability or power from which all our business flows.

A well-organized and well-run business will have one nucleus of greatness; in rare instances it may have a couple. Everything emanates from the center to the other portions of your business. The strength of the core determines how your business runs in totality.

Knowing where that core is allows you to concentrate your energy. In our business, McBride for Business LLC, the core is me: Shawn McBride’s knowledge about how to structure companies and make companies last. My experiences over the years have come together so that everything we do now — the speaking, the training, the custom one-on-one work with clients – flows from that core energy. We know where the core is and we know where the value is for our clients and us.

Once you understand your core, you are more focused when it’s time to decide how to spend your time and energy.

Where is your core? What is the center of your abilities? How are you building out from there? Join us in the comments below. Tell us about your core and how it allows you to better run your business.
