Can you see it?
Nothing gives an entrepreneur power like a clear vision. Unless an entrepreneur can see it, he cannot achieve it. An entrepreneur must have a dream which is the larger picture of what he wants his business to be. Every effort he makes on a daily basis must be part of the larger picture if it has to have any meaning at all.
A vision gives an entrepreneur drive and determination and keeps him focused amid discouragement mainly from people who are not so supportive. Without a strong vision, an entrepreneur will most likely drop it at the slightest provocation by those who won’t believe in him or his idea.
In order to form a clear picture of the business, an entrepreneur should ask himself questions such as where does he want the business to be, when should it be there and what it takes to get there. By answering such questions, he is able to determine important elements of the business such as capital, technology and location and stay in control of the direction the business takes. Without a clear vision, everything is left up to chance and chances are that it will fall.
Sharpen the entrepreneur in you.
