Vision Boards – Creative Ways to Develop a Business Plan

If you read my last post about planning your business and creating a timeline, you may have lost all of your enthusiasm — especially if you are not a numbers type.  Before you throw up your hands and give up on your entrepreneurial dreams, look for creative ways to capture your thoughts.

We talked in an earlier post about mind maps. If you didn’t read that post, you can find it here. There are other ways too. Some people use vision boards to capture their vision before attempting to turn their ideas into written plans.

What is a Vision Board?

A vision board is a collection of images, quotes and symbols that have meaning to you and which bring out feelings of joy, peace, love and happiness. They represent your dream life.

Vision boards come in many different formats, both digital and physical. We’ll talk more about that later, but for now, let’s take a look at the types of content. Images – by far the most common item to find on vision boards – can be photos, drawings, mind maps, sketches or anything else that has meaning for you.

In addition to images, people often include inspirational quotes, motivational messages and anything else that embodies the vision of the company you are trying to create.

  1. Long time reader, first time commenter — so, thought I’d drop a comment..

    — and at the same time ask for a favor.

    Your wordpress site is very simplistic – hope you don’t mind me
    asking what theme you’re using? (and don’t mind if I steal it?
    :P)

    I just launched my small businesses site –also built in wordpress like yours– but the theme slows (!) the site down quite a bit.

    In case you have a minute, you can find it by searching for “royal cbd” on Google (would appreciate any feedback)

    Keep up the good work– and take care of yourself during the coronavirus scare!

    Hi Justin,

    I don’t really like my theme. It’s a Genesis theme called Lifestyle Pro. I am consider Thrive Themes. I’ve been dealing with a security issue which slowed me down. However, keeping your site loading quickly is critical. I chose the Genesis themes because the platform offers some security issues. I shut down my last site and webhost because of problems I experience. After upgrading my GDPR Cookie consent, my SSL certificate appears to be working again, so now I will add more content. If you are puzzled by any of this, I would be happy to provide more detail. Thanks for visiting my site.
