How to Create a Vision Board2

Have you ever had a really great idea, but no motivation to put it into action? Most of the time, we give up on things because we don’t know where to start — your business idea might sound stellar in your head, but saying it out loud makes you realize how much actually needs to get done to get it off the ground. Creating a vision board not only helps you hone in on your short-term AND long-term goals, but it also allows you to get creative by putting your goals into picture form!

Our next Session will place this Saturday, January 21, at the Grove, and we’ve enlisted Mariah Lyons and Hilary Hartling to teach attendees all about branding. And, what is the first step in creating a brand for yourself? A vision board. It might not have magical powers, but it does have the power to help your vision become a reality. Here is a step-by-step guide for creating a vision board at-home:

1. Gather supplies! No vision board is complete without the essentials. Here is what you’ll need:

  1. White Poster Board
  2. Old Magazines
  3. Scissors
  4. Markers
  5. Glue, Tape, or Pins

2. Set the mood. Turn off distractions, clear your desk, light a delicious-smelling candle, crank up the mood music, and put your thinking cap on!

3. Stop… and think. So, what is going on your vision board? Since the purpose of your vision board is to bring your goals to life, your additions can include anything from travel, personal growth, health, career, or even things from your bucket list. Start small — try selecting 3-5 ‘topics’ that represent where you want to be in 5 years, then expand on those subjects.

4. Get crafty. Have you ever wondered what happens to old magazines? They get used for vision boards! Well, not all the time, but magazines are great resources because you can clip images, text, or other content to add a little editorial glam to your vision board!

5. Start arranging & pasting! Arrange your vision board and begin pasting! Don’t forget to leave space between the items you place on your board. To ensure it turns out visually appealing, try laying everything out before securing anything to your board.

6. Dress it up. Do you have a personal mantra? Favorite quote? Dress your vision board up by using markers to write inspirational words or phrases in areas with excess white-space.

7. Display your board. If you want to be inspired by your vision board on a daily basis, you need to see it everyday! Frame it, hang it on your wall or door, or tack it to your ceiling. Being able to visualize your goals will help immensely!

2012 marked the beginning of my entrepreneurial journey. After almost 10 years in the Fashion PR industry, I knew it was time to move on and start my own business. I remember creating a vision board on that first day with ideas, dreams, and goals for Simply Stylist that seemed incredibly unachievable at the time. Wide eyed and bushy tailed, I took the leap.

Slowly but surely, my efforts began to pay off. I eventually moved the Simply Stylist headquarters out of my home and into an office space, hired a few employees, and watched the company grow. Four years later, I can happily say that about 90% of the goals I put on the very first Simply Stylist vision board have come true. Visualization was key." — Simply Stylist Founder, Sarah Boyd
