As recently as 2014, author Salim Ismail defined the concept of an MTP – a Massive Transformative Purpose that drives new-age businesses to extraordinary success. In his book Exponential Organisations, he and others ranked the Fortune 100 companies by what they called their Exponential Quotient score.
According to Alison Berman, an MTP is a highly aspirational tagline, a huge and audacious purpose statement. Considering Elon Musk’s visionary Space X project, Berman describes its MTP as the belief that humans must become a multi-planetary species if they are to survive.

My MTP with The Success Party is to empower 100,000 entrepreneurs by 2025 with the principles of Effortless Marketing, reducing stress and creating more impact around the world.
What’s your MTP?
