Know Who You Are

Know who you are & take advantage of the holiday season to pause, reflect, and write down your core values and mission statement.

You don’t need to have a mission statement, business plan, or core values to begin coaching or even start a business. At first, just focus on getting paying customers.

As your business grows, however, you should take the time to clearly define your business. A business plan can be presented to investors or a bank for financing, but its main purpose should simply be a written declaration of what your business is, what it is trying to accomplish, and who you are.

This isn’t marketing material. This is mainly internal documentation of how you genuinely see your business, what service you want it to provide, and how you want it to operate in the community.

It is easy to lose sight of this over-arching plan when dealing with the drudgery of daily work. These principles should serve as a reminder that reorients you when you are uncertain of what decision is best for you and your business.

There is no better time to complete these than over the holiday season—when work tends to lessen and you have the time to reflect on the past year and look forward to the next year.

Spend a few days developing these definitions. Once you have a draft, step away and allow the ideas to digest. You might show them to someone else you trust for a second opinion.

Below are some examples that Barbell Logic has created for its business. They may be a good starting point for you. Read through these, and think of where you agree with these statements, and where you might modify them for your goals.
