No matter what stage of business you’re currently at, it’s important to take the time to define your company’s mission, and vision for the future. These statements give you clarity about what matters most to you as a business owner and can help keep you focused! They’re also inspiring for you and your team, and can motivate you to take the next steps in your business.
With just a couple of sentences, your mission and vision statements clearly show the priorities, values, and direction of your company. At their best, they help you tune out the noise and stay aligned with your purpose. At their worst, they are vague and confusing for customers and employees alike. So just as with your business plan, it’s important to write these statements in a thoughtful and intentional way!
In this video, you’ll learn why mission and vision statements can help you find clarity and purpose, and some dos and don’ts for writing these statements in your own business. We’ll also look at four great examples of successful companies’ mission and vision statements that will inspire you to create your own.
