Why a Mission Statement?

A statement of purpose that guides all decision-making.

What sets us apart? What is our purpose?

It should bring focus and answer:

  • What we do?
  • Who we serve?
  • Why?

“Your business needs to have its purpose (mission) defined before you can choose its destination (vision).”
