This week we focus on the future. A vision statement explains what fuels the company. It answers the question of ‘where’ are you going? It explains or gives a strategic direction of a future state for the company. A vision statement provides the inspiration for the entrepreneur, its leadership team, employees, vendors, and clients. You, the owner, are telling everyone where you are going. It is your destination for the journey.
Mike Kabeya of Kabeya Media is figuring out his vision. Listen in for a business planning discussion and strategies to answer Mike’s questions.
The E-Myth Revisited by Michael Gerber is a provocative read for this part of Mike’s journey, and if you haven’t read it, may be a good read for you as you plan the future. It will provide a different way of looking at your business. Look at it from a turn key, more systematic approach. Work on your business.
