The Start of a New Adventure...
By William Ballard
“Begin with the End in Mind means to begin each day, task, or project with a clear vision of your desired direction and destination, and then continue by flexing your proactive muscles to make things happen.” – Dr. Stephen R. Covey, author of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People (AFF)
So many people start things – start a project, start a business, or even start a blog – without having a clear picture or idea of what they are trying to accomplish. To me, this just makes absolutely no sense. You see, if you start out on a journey with no destination in mind, how would you know when you got there?
I recently started The Ultimate Travel Writer's program and it has inspired me to want to start this new travel writing blog project. It is because of that philosophical truth stated above, and because of this new program, that I wanted to start the launch of this new blog project with the following insights and strategic planning in mind.
Some of these elements or sections that you are about to read are what you would typically find in a traditional business plan, but is not meant to be viewed as one of the types of exhaustive business plans that we would write for one of our clients.
The gist of this article is all about giving you some insight into who I am, who this blog is for, and what you can expect to learn and gather from each article.
So without further delay, let’s get this journey started!
