What is the vision for your business? Do you have one?  What about a mission statement?

A compelling vision and mission can be translated into goals which are realized through strategies implemented as initiatives to generate results.

An effective mission helps define who are you are and what you intend to do – kind of like “your marching  orders”. Did you know that companies whose employees understand the mission and goals enjoy 29% greater return than other firms?

Some quick ideas for you on developing a strong vision for your small business:

  • Vision – must be something almost unattainable, like reaching the farthest star. It should be set at least 100 years into the future.
  • Another option is to set the Vision of being the best in your industry in your region or even the world …

An effective mission statement will have the following parameters::

  • Defines Product or Service
  • Customer-Focused
  • Results Oriented
  • Aligned with Company Objectives
  • Defines Value-Added
  • Clear and Convincing

Lee is a business transformation specialist. 10 years ago, Lee Munch said bye-bye to the corporate world and left her global senior management position at Citigroup for the uncharted territory of business owner. Although she enjoyed what she did, and successfully grew the bottom line of the product she oversaw every year– something was missing. That something was purpose. Lee wanted to do something that really mattered. Leaving Citi, although quite scary, gave Lee the opportunity do something more- to be able to make a real difference in real people’s lives. Along came ActionCoach, a global business coaching franchise. Not a day since has Lee ever thought of doing anything else. Except for something bigger! May of 2013, Lee opted out of the franchise to go out on her own.  Monarch 13 was born, and so was Lee’s proprietary, results-based system: the 5 stages of business metamorphosis, and her tag line- “from chaos to control so you can have the freedom you deserve”.  As a results, Lee has had the privilege of Sharing the stage with T. Harv Eker CEO of Peak Potentials and author of “the secrets of the millionaire mind, a guest appearance on “Oprah and friends”, working with Gail Blanke, monthly contributor to Real Simple magazine, and bing noted as “One to Watch” by the Long Island Business News. Lee’s client’s results have been staggering. Focusing on helping small business owners get out of their own way, they stop running their businesses reactively, and start taking control. A couple success stories include: an architect firm  which with Lee’s guidance, strategic execution, and close monitoring of the company’s profit drivers, increased their profit margin more than 200% in less than a year - including the owner now taking a steady paycheck, and paying for Lee’s retainer. Plus – he was now able to get home in time for family dinner.  Another example is a struggling florist looking at losing everything. By combining two stores down to one, and implementing effective marketing strategies, and overall structure into the shop, it is now flourishing. It is Lee’s passion to help the small business owner grow their business in a consistent, strategic manner. Why that market?  Lee says “I choose that segment because generally, the owner is so busy doing the business of the business, they can’t even think of anything else – they’re tired, overwhelmed and may not know what to do to change it. They feel squeezed on all sides. They need the most help, and most often are the most overlooked.” Lee’s mission is to positively impact 13,800 or more area small businesses by December 31st, 2017, and everyday works toward its fulfillment.
