Do you have a vision for your business?
My friend John Munsell does. His vision for Bizzuka, the company he founded and serves as CEO, is to become a leading content management software provider for small to medium-sized companies. So does my wife, Amie. A woman brimming with entrepreneurial spirit, her vision is to build Home Staging by Amie into the premier home staging company in south Louisiana and the greater Houston market.
I have to admit that, until recently, I lacked a strong vision for my own business. Frankly, it took my wife challenging me in that regard for me to begin the process of casting a vision for what the Paul Chaney brand could become. Together, we are working through the One Page Business Plan to not only determine a vision, but turn it into reality.
That’s not been an easy process either. As a somewhat creative person I have lots of ideas, but, up to now have yet to hone my vision to focus on what ignites my passion and drives me to succeed.
In Habakkuk 2:2 the Bible says, “Write the vision down and make it plain.” That’s what we’re in the process of doing and I would suggest that it’s a task any small business owner should perform.
So I ask again. Do you have a vision for your business? If not, craft one starting today.
