A business mission statement is a bedrock of what you do and how you treat customers. It spreads throughout your company and becomes the ethos to everyone involved. Businesses often overlook the simplest elements that make the ending result a total joy for the customer. A mission statement sets your company’s goals and mindset down on paper and helps guide your company’s goals.
I share this lesson from a great book titled, The Sustainable Edge. In the book, you’ll find some wonderful examples of how to craft and fine tune your narrative. Below is the mission statement for Kow Abundant, a company that promotes local businesses online at an affordable price-point. You can read how each line strengthens the next and provides value to the narrative while framing the company mindset nicely.
