How To Define Your Business Purpose and Vision
You might have a skeleton idea of what you want your business to achieve, but how do you really define your business purpose and vision?
Getting the most out of your venture can only be achieved by clearly defining to yourself, your co-workers (if you have any) and your clients what the aims of your business are.
If you’re struggling to define these, you’re losing out on potential business because you’re traveling a path without really knowing where you’re going.
What Does Your Business Want To Achieve?
Every business venture and company wants to achieve something, even if it’s bringing a new type of product to the market or becoming an authority within a niche market. Without goals, there’s really not much reason for you to be in business. If you want to stay connected to your business, it helps to make yourself realize why you’re in business to begin with.
Make a list of the things that you want to achieve through your l business. Even if you don’t include all of these in your purpose and vision, it’s a good way to brainstorm and get thinking about what your business is doing. If you have been running it for a while already, make a separate list of the achievements to date, as this will help you to see more clearly what your business can do.

How Can Your Business Have A Positive Impact?
Think about the ways in which your business could have a positive impact on other people, communities and projects. Your business may want to offer to sponsor local children or businesses when they’re starting up or trying to find their way. Another option is to make a section of your business into a social enterprise that will have a good effect on the communities and local areas.
Your business doesn’t need to be involved in charity work or humanitarianism in order to have a positive impact. You can have a positive impact simply be delivering value or advice on particular issues or offering something which was not previously on the market. There’s not a one-size-fits-all method to success; you might have to try a lot of things before you find what’s right for you. The key is to be flexible and willing to try new things when things aren’t working for you.

Even if it’s just little stuff, write it down. By the time you’re finished, you’ll probably feel better realizing how much you’ve accomplished. Then keep the list and review it and update it every so often to keep yourself going. While you may want to change when things aren’t working, you can’t give up on everything so quickly.
