Over the years I’ve been working exclusively with the owners of MSP businesses, I’ve noticed that many of them have a lot of elements in common – especially around the shape of their business. What do I mean by that? I mean the number of owners or directors who make up the core of the business and are responsible for driving it forwards. Many MSPs have a single owner and director, who started the business from scratch. The next biggest proportion is MSPs with two directors – and again, these are split into two types

Do you ever get those flash of inspiration moments when you see everything really clearly? Or perhaps you get reminded of a fundamental belief you’ve always had but forgotten about it in the melee of life and business? I had such a moment the other week when running a whole day Intensive day with my MSP Mastery clients.  As they were working on the insights from the day to take back to their businesses, I realised that as well as all the things you need to focus on to grow an MSP there’s one fundamental everyone needs.  It’s mandatory and non-negotiable if you want to scale.

As we start to come out of lockdown; there is still a lot of uncertainty. People are talking about a ‘new normal’ with no clear idea of what that means for many businesses – what will the impact be when staff come back from furlough and longer-term plans can be made? Will project work restart or will the upturn be faster? Our work patterns as lockdown eases will be likely to look different and it looks as though remote working will be here to stay in some format for many businesses. The thing is, when considering something like this, there’s facts, fiction and then hype mixed with fear and given I’m no infection control specialist it feels really tricky so have had to boil it down to common sense.

In a world where consumerism and digital advertising bombards us with messages about what we should or shouldn’t have to be successful/happy, it can be easy to fall into the trap of believing them. But all this stuff has to be paid for. So, is a better life just about the money then?

It’s funny isn’t it – for all the logic and intelligence we humans have and the amazing inventions we have created - when it comes to our fears, even the most illogical can make us freeze and endure frustration for years. The famous Eddison story of it taking 1000 attempts to get the lightbulb working and the millions of hours invested in getting the first man on the moon in 1969 are classic examples of where we’ve triumphed in the face of countless problems and failure.

‘I’ll never do it’. Luke Skywalker couldn’t get the Force to work. It was elusive and drained him every time he tried to master it. Time and time again he attempted, only to end up on his backside and exhausted. He could have given up. And if he had, Star Wars would have been a very different film. In fact, it wouldn’t exist as we know it.
