Have you decided to start a business? Maybe you've already started a business, and you're just curious if you've asked these questions (that's OK too). Either way, these questions are important and should be carefully considered as they will become the vision you'll use for measuring progress:


  1. What do I want my day-to-day activities to look like when I run a business?
  2. What do I want my life to look like when I run a business?
  3. How much time will I need to commit to my family to ensure my personal relationships stay strong?
  4. How would I like to be perceived by others in the community?
  5. What would I like to contribute to my community?
  6. How do I want my customers, friends, family members, business partners and peers to feel about me?
  7. How much money will I need to ensure a comfortable retirement for me, my family and any other possible dependents?
  8. How much money will I need to do things on my wish list?
  9. What will I want to be doing 5, 10 or 20 years from now?
  10. Where will I want to be 5, 10 or 20 years from now?
  11. What do I want to learn from running a business?

Now these are definitely not all the questions you could ask, but it's a good start. Do you have more questions that would be good to ask? Please share in the comments below.

These are some pretty handy questions. Another one to add might be what's a good exit for me? Something like that.
