The one step you can do right now to set change in motion
Being qualified and having great services that helps people is essential. What business owners sometimes leave out is running their business like a business. If you don’t have a clear vision for your business then why are you busting a gut.
I know you have a dream, otherwise you wouldn’t be in business, so let’s get things to line up for you.
The old saying
“A goal without a deadline is just a dream”
is a good quote as how will you know if you reach your destination if you haven’t decided where you are going?
The harvard business review states that “companies that enjoy enduring success have a core purpose…” By writing your vision down it becomes the core of your business that you can quickly and easily communicate to others so they know what you are about too. According to the treasury department there are over 798 100 small businesses trading in Australia with 1 to 19 employees.
You may feel that you are clear because you have a passion in your belly and deep down you know what you’d like to have. By writing your vision down that means committing and can bring up a few ugly fears. Fear that we are being ridiculous and can never achieve what we want, fear that we won’t make it work or fear of change. Writing your vision down instead is liberating because you have held the dream for so long this starts to give it shape. Follow my simple tips below to make this step easier.
A vision statement helps you to stand our from the crowd.
So, if you don’t have this in place now what do you do?
So what is a vision statement anyway?
