Startup Business Tip - Vision Is Everything
The great business leaders in the world have unteachable business vision. They can see something that no one else can see, know how to make their vision become a reality, and then create something that many people value.
One of the first questions I ask aspiring entrepreneurs is: "What is your vision of the company 5 years from now?"
The truth is if you don't know where you are trying to go with it, then you will not know WHERE to start, WHAT steps to take throughout the journey to get there, and WHEN it's time to make changes.
The world of entrepreneurship is confusing enough. Without a target to aim at, you might as well take your time and money, kiss them goodbye.
Let's look at an individual. When a person feels lost inside and unsure of what they want in life, they are unable to make clear decisions. Sometimes, it freezes them from making any decisions. This leads to unhappiness and regret.
Take that same reasoning and it apply to a business. Without direction, failure is inevitable.
There is no denying that visions will change... and that is completely acceptable. They are called pivots. In a startup business, they are actually quite frequent. Growth and expansion will do that and its not necessarily a bad thing.
The point is vision affects every choice and decision you make. Everything in life is easier when you know where you are trying to go. Vision is everything.
