Day 50 (Wed.): Start work on your business!
  1. Type the NEW Notes in Typing Club 
  2. Mission Statement.  All businesses and organizations have them but why?
  3. - Open eClass and answer the Discussion Thread Post.
  4. Finish by Friday.
It’s time to create your company’s mission statement. Remember, it doesn’t have to be perfect, but it needs to accurately reflect your business. You can tweak or update it down the road. Some of the best advice we’ve heard about crafting a company mission statement is from legendary entrepreneur Richard Branson. “You need to explain your company’s purpose and outline expectations for internal and external clients alike,” he says. “Make it unique to your company, make it memorable, keep it real, and, just for fun, imagine it on the bottom of a coat of arms.”

What is your mission? Think for a moment about your product or service and what you aim to do with it. Who are you making it for and why? Now try to put it into words. This is called your mission.


To start, ask yourself the following questions:

• What is the purpose of my business?
• Who are my customers?
Why are you making this product or service?
• How do I differ from the competition?
• What are the company’s core values (things you stand behind to be true for your company and your customers)?

Now, write your mission statement in one sentence.
Examples of Business Mission Statements

Starbucks: To inspire and nurture the human spirit—one person, one cup and one neighborhood at a time.

Chick-fil-A: To glorify God by being a faithful steward of all that is entrusted to us.

Nordstrom to provide outstanding service every day, one customer at a time.


Honest Tea seeks to create and promote great tasting, healthier, organic beverages. We strive to grow our business with the same honesty and integrity we use to craft our products, with sustainability and great taste for all.

Airbnb aims to connect millions of people in real life all over the world, through a community marketplace—so that you can Belong Anywhere.

Marriott To be the #1 hospitality company in the world.

The mission of Southwest Airlines is dedication to the highest quality of customer service delivered with a sense of warmth, friendliness, individual pride and company spirit.

Twitter: To give everyone the power to create and share ideas and information instantly, without barriers.

Walt Disney: To be one of the world's leading producers and providers of entertainment and information

Hobby Lobby: To provide a return on the family's investment, sharing the Lord's blessings with our employees, and investing in our community.

Microsoft: Our mission is to empower every person and every organization on the planet to achieve more.

        ---- Key Words -----

Still stuck on that final draft? Here are some of the most popular words used by more than 300 American companies in their mission statements.

Accelerate • Best • Build • Care • Work Champion • Value Communicate • Customers Employees • Engage • Environment • Guide Growth • Leader • Make • Profit • Quality Service • Solve • Transcend

"Again this year at Crews students are learning what it means to be entrepreneurial. In Mr. Hames' class they are studying entrepreneurship by actually making a real business and taking it to real business minded adults. These are not just any adult. They are community minded professionals but more importantly business and servant-heart leaders who want to give back the same way they have been blessed by their community. Mr. Hames' takes 60+ eighth graders each semester and after only a few short weeks has them running a real business in their spare time. Students might sell products like jewelry, or preform a services like lawn care. Their ideas must be creative, unique, and give back in some way to their community. Every student must have a detailed business plan and then pitch their idea to the entire class for advice. Students comment online about their peer's business pitch and act as venture capitalist themselves looking at the details of each business. Students then get a chance to meet actual business owners in Crews' own version of Shark Tank where business executives give their advice and recommendations to the students. Their mentorship and feedback are priceless as they learn to set S.M.A.R.T. goals and the art of the pitch - elevator pitch. In the end, students realize there is nothing like making it real in Mr. Hames' class."
