How to Create a Vision for Your Business Partnership?

Updated: Aug 28, 2021

I have a vision board that I look at almost every day. I love this exercise because I get to envision what I want my life to look like. I can add, remove, rearrange, and re-engineer my life whenever I want.

This board fuels me. I get to see where I want to go visually. Sure, it gets frustrating sometimes when I haven’t achieved something on my board yet, but its purpose is really to FUEL me to become a better version of me.

Envisioning our ideal business partnership and God’s purpose for it can also fuel us to become all He intended for us and our business.

As partners, we must ask ourselves what we really want for our partnership. What’s the perfect vision of our joining together for this venture we’re in?

It’s an easy question to ask, but difficult to honestly answer. Why? Because the answer is often buried under a whole bunch of other fake answers.

Here’s what our vision is NOT:

  1. what others expect or desire for our business partnership

  2. what our parents, kids, or pastor wants for your venture

  3. what we want to want

  4. what we know we should want

  5. what we feel obligated to provide for our partnership

Now that we know the answers we DON’T want to cloud our minds with, we can approach the question with an open and prayerful heart: what does God want for our partnership?
