Develop a Mission Statement

Develop a Mission Statement is Part Six of Ten Steps to Discover U.


A mission statement describes your purpose and the path you plan to take. Mission statements are brief, focused, flexible, and feasible. They include how you will add value, based on your values. That’s why I like to call them value statements. Find a form to create a value statement at Your Unique Selling Proposition,  and more resources at the Value Statement Pinterest Board and Brand and Purpose Toolkit.
