Vision holders

Building a profitable and purposeful creative business can feel like an uphill struggle. However, it can also be a joy to be supported by peers, professionals and community members as you navigate unchartered territory.

We all need people who can see our vision and are willing to hold space for it when we make mistakes. You need big-hearted, big thinking, action takers to help articulate your vision and keep you accountable to making progress towards it.

MORE IDEAS FROM THEARTICLE

Seemingly ordinary people can ignore critics and achieve great things because they're willing to share their audacious visions even if they may be mocked for it.

  • Walt Disney was fired from the Kansas City Star because he "lacked imagination and had no good ideas."
  • Lady Gaga was dropped three months after signing a major record label.
  • Vincent van Gogh sold only one painting during his lifetime, and that to a friend.

Action step: Articulate your vision. Draw it, write it down. Get your ideas into the world.

Action steps:

Find groups of people who are in a similar stage as you and join them.

Action steps:

  • Determine who is on the same level or a few steps ahead of you and where they're hanging out. Expect that those places will not be free Facebook groups or spaces.
