How much is a vision worth?
We’re talking about an entrepreneurial vision for success.
Many, many entrepreneurs have a dream or desire and start shaping it into a business. They start taking action and making it happen. They get caught up in the doing.
Nothing wrong with that. You may move along in your venture without ever needing a vision while creating value and success.
However when an entrepreneur hits a road block, finds herself in struggle, or the flow just isn’t consistent then...
having a vision can be helpful if not critical.
It can be the tool that helps you hire at the right time, advertise when it makes the most sense, or expand as need demands not before. It can keep you from spreading your resources (and this includes your time) in many directions without really knowing why. It can be the guidance that helps you push through the rough times rather than quitting.
If done right and well this guide can show you why something is important or not to implement. It can assist you when deciding if a decision to take a risk helps you execute your vision or not. Some risks are worth it where others may just end up being a burden, a wrong move needing correction.
Entrepreneurs want their business to provide for the client AND themselves. Always make sure that a key part of your vision includes you.
A entrepreneurial vision can change over time, of-course. Yet at any moment in time it can keep you from straying off your path and needing a correction.
Would you go on a trip around the world without an itinerary? Probably not. Why start your entrepreneurial venture without vision?
