Creating Your Big Vision ChecklistJan 01, 2022
From the time those bells ring and champagne glasses clink on New Year’s, I know that whatever I envision I can achieve. Yet January is a tough month for many entrepreneurs and women alike. The pressure to make something happen and do better than the year before can be intimidating. I’ve learned to look forward instead of backwards and approach a new year with zero regrets.
When I work with women entrepreneurs to achieve their goals, we always start with a vision. It’s important to have something to focus on and be inspired by.
Let’s look at how to create YOUR big vision- there’s no better time than a fresh, new year!
Standard Checklist For Growing Your Girl Boss Business:
1. Start with the End in Mind.
If you’re a fan of Stephen Covey’s “The Seven Habits of Highly Successful People,” you know that this is his first habit. We need something to base our efforts in; something that will keep you going when you can’t see the end in sight. So start by thinking of HOW you want your business life to be.
From sunup to sundown, make your first and last moments of the day worthwhile. Visualize the business future you desire to live.
3. Get Creative.
Here’s the fun part, it’s time to take all those creative ideas and see which one sticks. It’s where you plant that first seed of the business and it is best to focus on researching, testing, and evaluating if your idea will be a viable business for you. This takes time and you should feel a sense of purpose and passion that will help you on your journey.
Once you’ve got a clear idea what you desire to grow, it’s during this stage, you are focused on growing business profits and gaining ongoing customers. This is the hard work and grit stage. It’s not easy, but with that early stage research, you’ll feel confident your business can grow.
Here, you need to start professionalizing your business by adding supports and structures. These will help you move smoothly through the proceeding stages with more ease of business expansion. This stage is vital to help avoid causing your business harm. You’ll want the right people, vendors, financial capital, and resources around you to ensure each step you make is efficient and profitable.
Here is where you begin to review which supports and structures are still working and which ones are to be updated. As you consolidate, you will determine which common beliefs, values, and standards you and your business teams will focus on as you grow. You will likely edit some areas that are not working as well.
With your business up and running, you can’t stop thinking of new ways to increase your efforts. To stay viable in an ongoing changing world, you’ll want to think up some new ideas. During this stage, you add in researching, testing, and evaluating in your business to determine which new ideas to go forward in your business growth.
In this stage, you will take those viable ideas along with your supports and structures and meld them together. You want to ensure that they align with your business’s mission and purpose as well.
Here’s the final stage of moving to the next part of your entrepreneurial journey. Many business owners dream of the day when they can sell their business for a profit. If this is your dream, then hopefully you’ve defined that at the beginning. Set that intention with a goal number, timing and your ideal buyer. Or perhaps you want to pass this onto your children to run and leave a legacy in your name.
Whatever your business, these are the standard checklist tasks to follow as you develop and grow your Girl Boss business. Some are longer and harder than others and entrepreneurs need to be able to weather them all. It’s helpful to have a positive network you can rely on, a supportive mentor or coach, and the right tools at your disposal.
