Entrepreneurs are visionaries. They tend to have bigger ideas and aspirations than the average individual – this is why they usually make better business owners than employees. But what many entrepreneurs fail to do is align their visions with their business and they aren’t clear on where they’re headed. This lack of clarity leads to the fall of many businesses.
In order to keep your business alive and thriving and your dreams fresh, you need a vision statement. Your vision statement describes the potential of your business and where it is headed for the future. By having a vision statement, you are setting a target goal that keeps you focused on something bigger than what you and your business are now, giving you a goal to continue working toward for the continued success of your business.
Your vision needs to be about your customer, not about you.
Here are some questions to ask that will help you in building your vision:
- What is the potential of my business?
- What am I/my company working toward to better the life of my customer/client over the long term?
- Where do I want my business to be 10 years from now?
- What impact will I have on the community or society as a whole?
Your vision statement should be clear and concise, easy to remember, and simple to understand.
When you have a strong vision and vision statement, and you live it authentically, you will attract customers who align with your vision. And this will lead to the continued success of your business.
