Today, Pete Mohr dives into why being proactive isn’t just a buzzword—it’s a lifeline for your business. Why sit idle and wait for a storm to ruin your business when you can plan and adapt? Using the ship analogy, Pete underlines the essence of preparing for the rough seas in business. More importantly, Pete explores how your SWOT analysis integrates seamlessly with the 5P’s model. The idea? Be ready, be adaptive, but don’t be hasty.
Here are a few things Pete covers:
- The importance of being proactive in business
- Balancing the act of foreseeing opportunities and avoiding impulsiveness
- How to overlay your SWOT analysis onto the 5P’s model (Promise, Product, Process, People, Profit)

- The critical need for technology in proactive planning
It’s Time to Take Action:
To elevate your business, your first step is to go back and examine your SWOT analysis. Align it with your 5P’s, identify any gaps and opportunities, and start planning your course. If you skipped the SWOT analysis, make sure to go back to the last episode and get it done.
