5 Questions to Ask to Create Your Mission Statement

It is fantastic to create a mission statement and then to use it to govern how you run your business. Most often a mission statement is defined as a statement of an organization’s purpose, its reason for existing. It is often said, you can’t get where you are going if you don’t know where you are. Think about your business, your blog or your home. What do you want to do and for whom do you want to do it? That is your mission, that is your purpose. Do you have a clearly defined mission statement for your business, blog or home? If yes, good for you, you are ahead of the game and ready to act on purpose. If you do not have a written mission statement that you can follow grab a pen and paper or your favorite electronic device and get ready to do some work.

To draft your mission statement ask yourself the following questions and put your answers in writing:

1.  What do you want to do
2.  Who do you want to do it for
3.  How do you plan to do it
4.  Where do you plan to do it
5.  Why do you want to do what you do

The answers to these questions will let you figure out and put into just a few sentences the mission for your business, blog or home. Check out the following, mission statement. It is my mission statement, the reason I write this blog:

I am Janeane Davis. I describe myself as a Superwoman, aka a wife and mother of four. I am an African-American mom blogger whose mission is to inspire, encourage and motivate women to be their best in business and at home.

This statement guides what I do in this space. When I write articles for you to read, I keep this mission statement in mind. When I accept requests to write sponsored posts, K only do so if I can do it is a way that furthers this mission. It is this statement that I share when people ask me what I do for a living or why I created this blog. My mission statement grounds me and gives me a firm foundation for my actions and my efforts.

If you already have a mission statement, share it with me in the comments below. I would like to learn who you are and for what you stand. If you do not have a mission statement, get to work drafting one and then share it here. If you need help creating one, send me an email or give me a call, let’s work together to get you standing on the firm, solid ground you need.

In conclusion, it is fantastic to create a mission statement and then to use it to govern how you run your business. So, the question for you this fantastic day is, what is your business mission, what is your purpose?
