Visions Never Go Away

A client of mine recently went through some challenging times. Declining sales, personnel issues, and owner health issues took their toll and threatened to dash the dreams of the owner. Sound at all familiar?

Last October, I posted a blog dealing with holding on to your dreams. When we first start a business or a job, we are full of optimism and excitement. In our minds, nothing could stop us! Then…life happens. Challenges and issues such as those mentioned above begin to cloud that vision as slowly it begins to fade as hope also wanes.

Well, I’m happy to report that my client’s business has rebounded and they have regained their vision! But had they really ever lost it? Did it just die and go away? No. It was there all the time. They just lost sight of it for a while and, when began to experience some positive growth, the vision magically appeared again. You see, it was never lost. The vision was always there – they simply couldn’t see it.

The first topic of our new “Business Builders” program will address vision and the importance of having a clear vision of what you want your business to look like in three, five, ten years from now. I encourage you to sign up via our webpage to attend an in-depth look and discussion with other business owners about the value of maintaining a clear vision for your business.
