Starting a successful business
If you ask me what is the key to building a solid building, I would say have a good foundation, a foundation that supports the structure of the building to withstand earthquakes and natural disasters. Solid foundations.
If you ask me what is the key to building a solid company, the answer would be the same solid foundations. And these bases are given when one really knows what they want from your business.
Much has been heard of Vision, Mission and the Purposes of the business, these are the moment of truth the foundation of it. Coupled with other concepts such as business plan, brand and systematization, are those who build a successful business, solid, safe from the vagaries of the economy, contingencies, failures and successes.
But what are those three words we see framed in the reception of some business or promotional material of the same? What magic may have to deserve to be displayed so proudly?
These three words contain the reason we have to start a business, to begin a quixotic adventure as that of a venture. They embodied how we view the company and what we want. Those words are our “constitution” business philosophy and all those who work in the company must know and understand. And all that relate to it should be able to consult on how to interact with us.
I’ll try to summarize in a simple and practical for everyone to be clear about its meaning, which is essential when we are thinking about starting a business.
Leaders have vision, and that means looking ahead in time, so the more clarity you have about your long-term vision, the easier it is for you to take short term decisions to make that vision a reality.
To understand what is the vision, you simply must ask:
If your business in the future what would it be perfect?
How would you like, what kind of products would, what would your reputation if you have a perfect business?
The answers to these questions are what you should write and write and your business vision.
Why are you in business?
Why are you doing what you do?
What is the purpose of being in this business?
And this why he always has to do with other people, make changes or improvements in the lives of others. You should know the purpose and EVERYONE in your business should be aware of it.
Ask yourself the question:
What I want to accomplish and achieve my clients?
“Our mission is to provide the best products and quality services to this particular client in this particular market and as a result become a company of x million dollars”
Everyone has to buy under that mission and you should be clear about the same. Also, you should have your personal mission and your family.
Develop a strategic plan for your business and write, put it, What is your vision, your purpose and your mission. And the next question is to do what your goals and objectives for your business.
