What are your core values?

core values

Core Values establish your mission statement for you and your company.

“Our goal isn’t to make money. Our goal absolutely at Apple is not to make money. This may sound a little flippant, but it’s the truth. Our goal and what gets us excited is to try to make great products. We trust that if we are successful people will like them, and if we are operationally competent we will make revenue, but we are very clear about our goal.”Sir Jonathan Paul “Jony” Ive, Senior Designer Apple,Inc.

At our events company our mission statement and goal is: “To create amazing, memorable, stress free events by connecting in a personalized manner to understand unique wants and needs. To do the little things that others don’t, won’t or can’t. To achieve unforgettable results!”

What are your core values? What is your true mission statement?  Is it only to make money, or to deliver outstanding events and amazing weddings?  If you change your focus, you may just change your income dramatically.

Until next time, Alan
