Many people that are starting out on their entrepreneurial journey, have many ideas but one vision for the business they want to start. Strategizing your vision with your ideas should be the first step in preparing your business plan because it will definitely help in planning out your 3 and 5 years plans for your business.
Strategizing your vision with your ideas is like putting together a puzzle. Thinking about how your ideas may fit into your main vision, can help you build a solid foundation for your business and creates a success path that can also help you create multiple streams of income with that vision.
Think of your Vision being the catalyst to the ideas you have, and put them in order of significance under your vision to effectively plan out how your business will evolve. Your vision doesn't have to stand alone as you build it out, those ideas can be the arms and legs you need to make your vision take off.
For example, a client of mine had a vision of owning a restaurant, but she also had ideas of teaching classes on health and wellness and giving back to the community by feeding the unhoused and people in need. there are soo many ways those ideas can fit her vision and strategizing how, will give her more information on what kind of space she will need for the restaurant and the location she will need to be in close proximity to areas that will connect her to the community and health conscious people.
