Business growth partner Samantha Hartley shares how a vision statement, different from a mission statement, helps guide people to “get clear” on what they want. The focus derived from that process improves results personally and professionally.

Watch this video to learn how to do this “visioning” to get a better picture of:

  1. Your business goals
  2. Your perfect client
  3. What you want from partners, and even
  4. Your perfect day

Samantha defines visioning and gives an excellent process example related to joint venture or strategic partnerships. She’ll clear up the confusion about vision vs. mission too.

You’ll want to brainstorm, whether with a team or by yourself, to craft a vision statement that you can boil down to a simple one-line statement. Read this new mantra each day to visualize and achieve your goals.
