Vision boards are not just for personal goals. More and more small business owners are using vision boards to help them succeed in their businesses. If you’ve never made a vision board, 2024 is a great year to make one. In this blog post, we’re going to discuss creating a vision board for business success. However, let’s talk about whether or not vision boards work. 

Do Vision Boards Work?

Many people would say absolutely. 

According to Inc, vision boards work because of visualization and how it affects the brain. You’re able to rewire and train your brain for success. Inc says visualization is a great way to do that. 

Inc says that visualization works because it can:

  • Reduce stress
  • Reduce doubt
  • Increase focus on your goals 
  • Improves clarity of your goals

Many small business owners reap the benefits of visualization. According to a study, 82% of small business owners who used a vision board at the start of their business have accomplished more than half of their goals so far. 

Remember, a vision board is just a visual representation of your goals. It will remind you to keep working towards them and remind you of what’s really important to you.  

Creating a Vision Board for Business Success 

If you’re interested in creating a vision for business success, there are just a couple of steps you have to follow.

 We know small business owners are strapped for time, so we’ll help you do it in the quickest way. 

In general, vision boards don’t have to be time-consuming. You can create a vision board in the afternoon. It only takes a couple of hours. If you prepare beforehand, you’ll finish assembling your vision board even quicker. 

Here’s what you need to do:

Figure Out Your Goals

This is the most important step. Your vision board is about visually representing what is important to you. 

When coming up with business goals and what you want to achieve in the following year, ask yourself these questions:

  1. What do I want to achieve in my business for the next year? This can include revenue goals, establishing a new income stream, securing funding, decreasing debt, or whatever is important to you. 
  2. What are the core values of my business? You can then make sure that the goals you’re setting relate to the core values of your business. 
  3. Who do I want to serve next year? Think about who your buyer persona is. 
  4. What kind of tools do I want to have? For example, if you want to be a YouTuber, you may want to include ring lights and a microphone. 
  5. Do I have an ideal home office set up? Do I want to set up another location? What will it look like? 

Use the SMART method if you need help creating great goals for your business. You’ll be more likely to achieve your goals that way.

Find Pictures to Match Your Goals 

This is the fun part! When looking for pictures to match your goals, the more specific, the better. However, as long as the picture reminds you of your goal, that’s all that matters. 

You can use old magazines or grab some photos for the internet. 

Let’s say you wanted to start a YouTube Channel in 2023. You can find a picture of the YouTube logo, tools you’d need, and a mockup of what you want your channel to look like. You could also just find a picture of someone being a YouTuber.

Don’t Forget About the Words 

Yes, vision boards can have words, too. When thinking about words to include on your vision board, you can include:

  • Your favorite motivational quote
  • An inspiring Bible verse 
  • Words that mean something to you

Just pick words that will help you support your goals. 

Gather Your Other Supplies 

You probably don’t need any supplies if you’re doing the vision board digitally, like on Canva. Some people keep their vision boards online. 

However, if you plan on creating the design on Canva and then printing it, you may need a corkboard to paste it on. Another option is to have it printed from the print shop on thicker paper. 

While this option is definitely a time saver, there is still merit in making a vision board the traditional way. You’ll need:

  • Corkboard or something else to put the pictures on
  • Thumbtacks or glue 
  • Your pictures and quotes
  • Markers
  • Scissors
  • Anything else you need to be creative

For a quick fix, you can grab this vision board kit; it comes with images, a background for the images, and pretty much everything you need. 

Assemble Your Vision Board 

If you’re doing an online vision board, you can create it as a collage and you’d be done. 

If you’re doing it the more traditional route, you’ll have to sit and assemble everything.

Put the pictures and quotes in a way that makes sense to you. 

Vision boards allow so much room for creativity. Your vision board doesn’t have to look like anyone else’s. It doesn’t even have to be fancy. It just needs to be authentically you.

Position Your Vision Board 

One of the most important steps for using your vision board is to put it somewhere you can actually see it often. 

That may be your computer background or phone wallpaper. 

For others, your home office or wherever you work will be ideal.


Vision boards are a great tool for manifesting your business goals. If you’re planning on making changes or pivoting for the new year, get it on paper!
