First up let me ask you … do you have a vision for your business?
If you do can you clearly and quickly articulate it?
You would be surprised how many people or businesses do not have a vision and if they do it is sort of muddled in their head.
The vision for your business should be something you can clearly articulate
I have seen businesses that have a Vision Statement that was carefully crafted (perhaps with the help of a business coach) but no one can articulate it and therefore there is no “buy in” from the team. I have witnessed this even when the vision statement is hanging on a wall in a business.
I have been both the business owner without a clear vision in the past and I have worked as a business coach and helped people become clear about their vision.
I am passionate about this subject as it was when we became very clear about the vision of our business and enrolled our team in it that our business success increased dramatically.
Crafting the vision for your business
The vision for your business should be precise and easy for you to articulate. It should include a target and be measurable but at the same time endless. The vision should inspire you and be the framework for your planning. It is your dreams and aspirations for your business.
A vision when you are starting out
If you are just starting out in your business and do not have a team as yet then you still need a vision for your business. It is what will inspire you and remind you of what you are aiming to build.
The Vision and Team
It does not matter if you are building a conventional business with a team, a network marketing business or working with affiliates.
You need to be able to articulate your vision to enroll your team in it. It is your vision that will inspire others to join you.
People follow people with a vision.
People with vision are exciting to be around.
I share some of my experience here in this video.
As I said in the video often our vision starts out about ourselves and then frequently expands and becomes about others and contribution. Bill Gates is a perfect example.
As I also mentioned I joined Empower Network because of the strong vision of David Wood and the company.
I have written more on my blog here. The Vision Started in a Hotel Room and is Spreading
The actual vision David Wood has it to create 100 new millionaires a year. Simple – measurable – and time driven but endless.
The Vision for your business – in closing…
Do you have a vision for your business?
If so have you committed it to a vision statement?
Have you enrolled your team in it?
If you would like to I am sure others would love to hear the vision for your business.
Make it a great day.
