Want a clear simple way to keep your work on track, to follow the right leads and opportunities and build boundaries to keep distractions at bay? Your mission statement is the guiding light and focus that keeps you on track as your business develops. A mission statement also gives customers, funding sources and media a clear idea of your business' purpose, how it plans to accomplish it, and who its target customer is. We will create a working copy of your mission statement and identify top business goals for the coming year.

In this 2nd session we will put all the pieces together by connecting with your personal values and vision behind your brand to help clarify your mission. We will also develop clear language to communicate to your audience, customers and investors what your business does, why it does it, and who it serves.

The clarity gained in this workshop will provide a strong foundation for you to grow your business into a force to be reckoned with. Students will leave this with a working draft of their mission statement and goals for their creative business.
