How Does the MISSION STATEMENT Differ from the Vision  Statement?

The vision statement, unlike the mission statement, is not true in the present. The Mission Statement is “true” in the present moment and is a “center point of focus” for the entire organization in how the company relates to its customers/clients.  


Simply put, the vision should state what the founder ultimately envisions the business to be, in terms of growth, values, employees, contributions to society, and the like; therefore, self-reflection by the founder is a vital activity if a meaningful vision is to be developed.



The mission statement should be a concise statement of business strategy and developed from the customer's perspective and it should fit with the vision for the business. 

A Business Vision should be specific. It’s important to note that the vision statement isn’t a description of detailed action steps. In fact, it doesn’t describe action at all, but rather it describes a statement of a condition. It describes business success in the future. As to how you’ll arrive at such success, that’s the job of your goals, systems & strategies and their detailed action steps (tactics). Those strategies and action steps will come later in your planning process.  

Developing the Vision for your Business:

As an entrepreneur, you must envision the future, have or develop BELIEF that you can develop resources, and motivate key personnel to achieve more than they may ever have dreamed possible. You must see a changed world beyond the time horizon, create an ideal and unique image of what it could become, open your followers' eyes and lift their spirits. You must believe that your dreams can become reality and, through your belief systems, get people to see exciting opportunities and possibilities for the future.


The “Business Vision” is a short, succinct, and inspirational statement of what the organization intends to become and to achieve at some point in the future.  “Vision” for the business refers to the category of intentions that are broad, all-inclusive and forward-thinking.  It is the image that a business must have of its goals before it sets out to reach them. It describes aspirations for the future, without specifying the means that will be used to achieve those desired ends. 


Your vision is a description of your “desired future state.”
Thus, you’ll create a vision statement describing your organization as you’d like it to be in, say, five, ten or more years. Note the emphasis on the future. For the vision statement isn’t true today. Rather it describes the organization as you and your planning team would like it to become - in the future.

A vision statement should build enthusiasm.
It should provoke inspiration. It should stimulate people to care and to act on the business’s behalf. It should “rally the troops to action.”

My business literally doubled in size through his teaching and guidance, almost overnight. His clear desire to help business people achieve their business and personal dreams comes through in everything he does. His knowledge of business basics and how to organize a business for sleekness, maneuverability, astounding growth and personal satisfaction is unparalleled. His advice is simple and the tools he gave me were easy to integrate into any business situation. They are comprehensive and effective. With Shawn on my team I feel there is no limit to what I can achieve as a businessman. And he is fun to work with."  Elliot F.

“I have known Shawn since 1986 and have had many business dealings with him from his Law Practice and California Business Development Center. Shawn is very skilled at understanding both sides of negotiations and at providing creative win-win solutions in a very professional, courteous, fair, respectful, prepared, timely and cost minded manner. I recommend Shawn to anyone who is looking for an intelligent, energetic, no nonsense individual to help them in their legal matters and/or business development” Leroy K. 


After working directly with Shawn, and all the custom modules that were built by Shawn and his team, I have a better understanding of how to insure a successful business. Our goal is to work with Shawn Jackson and his firm for many years to come.

He is among the top professionals in the Bay Area community. Shawn is definitely in the upper echelon of Business Consulting, and you would be hard press to find anyone that has a more thorough understanding of what it take to be a success!

As a business owner there are many legal issues to navigate. Shawn Jackson’s knowledge and negotiation skills have served me and my company at the most professional level. Where most business owners see legal cost as an expense, working with Shawn provides us with consultation that saves or even makes us money.

Mike M. 

Outside the box is exactly what Shawn Jackson makes you do. His fundamental teachings of GREAT business practices along with the NEW AGE thinking; it doesn’t get much better than that. With his systems of business in place one is able to expand in the horizon of what was possibly the untouchable dream for your business.

Your expertise runs deep and it is wonderful how the help you offer me seems to run not only along the vein of "business development", but along the line of personal development as well.  This has proved essential when business today is all about building relationships.

I am grateful for the way you help me see things from ALL perspectives, even when I can't see them on my own.

You treat me with respect and keep me informed on whatever you are working on. I like you for three reasons: Fair Prices, Quality in you work, and Timely attention and information...PLUS...if you cannot help me…you know someone who can;

Shawn Jackson is a super sharp individual. Not only does he have a variety of business experience and a clear knowledge of the law, but he has an uncanny way of looking at a situation from angles that most people would never consider.

Mickey G

He has been able to make a complicated process more understandable and we trust him to make sure we get the right work done at the right time. I would recommend Shawn to any company who is seeking to grow their business to the next level.
