Mission, Vision, Values, and Environmental Scanning


By describing, the three critical components of environmental scanning that would apply to the business that I have chosen which would be an organic aqua-phonics greenhouse. Within this paper, I will discuss the purpose of the business clearly and succinctly. I will discuss three of the critical components that would apply to Ponder Hill Enterprise’s. The only stakeholder’s are the owner’s Tammy and David where Tammy takes care of the paperwork, and other business related items. David takes care of the daily maintenance of the Enterprise. Therefore, by making sure that everything is in running order for the business. The external components of the business would include the vendors, consumer’s, suppliers, or anyone else that the business has within their company.
In defining environmental scanning this is the acquisition and use of information about the current events, trends, and relationships within the business’s external environment. A company mission statement is what separates them from other company’s like them and helps to identify the scope of the business operations. The mission statement clearly states the business’s product, market, and technological areas that will emphasis the way the company reflects on values, and priorities of the strategic decision makers within the business. There are implications to everything that is done within the business therefore, there would be needs to attend to if the company or business is not profiting or standing up to their mission statement. This would indicate that the mission statement of the company would need to be looked at. In this day and time the sustainability, that defines your business and goals within the market place. As a business owner, she will have to make the decisions about the business and everyday operations. Creating the mission statement for your business needs to be looked at or memorized and the owner should always stick to the promises they make to consumers. By looking at the long-term objectives, of Ponder Hill Enterprises that I would like to build within the next few years. The owner would need to consider the following: return on investment, competitive positioning of the product, technological leadership within the business, profitability, and other objectives as well. According to Pearce & Robinson (2004), the thorniest issues faced in defining a company mission are those that pertain to responsibility.

Mission Statement
The mission of Ponder Hill Enterprises is to provide eco-friendly ways to cut back on pollution and save money in the process. To provide fresh produce all organic with no chemicals of any kind.

Vision Statement
Our company’s vision statement is to become the America’s leading consumer company for organically fresh foods.

Ponder Hill Enterprise’s values statement is to be driven by the creativity, resourcefulness, focus, and entrepreneurial spirit to have the support of the consumer’s. To have an inspired and diverse team that respects the contribution from everyone within the company. To ensure the health and safety of our people surrounding are paramount. Ponder Hill Enterprise’s will prove to be a leader in their responsibility for the environment. That the integrity of the company is never compromised and that they make a positive contribution to the society.

The Smell of Success


Another milestone in my life finally achieving a Master’s degree, and this ends another chapter in my life. What an accomplishment now new doors opening as I type this article. I have achieved quite a few things in my life so far. I am proud of the accomplishments that I have achieved in the past ten years. The smell of success thrills me because it was something that I accomplished. The past eight years was a learning experience like no other that I will experience. There was a time when I did not want to learn and quit school because I did not like it. However, raising children I found it necessary to show them that you can do whatever your heart desires. You can be anything that you want and go where you want to go. Your future is what you make it and if you do not have the time to put the effort into learning all that you can Shame on you. I am now writing for contractors on odesk and find it a rewarding experience. I write, and rewrite articles for other people and learn the different techniques used to make an article an excellent piece of work. I enjoy writing everyday about the things that I have done, the people I have talked to, and other things that happen. Everyone asks what you are going to do now that you have graduated. Well to tell you the truth I am not sure because the state of the economy is not in good standing. I am working on different angles to put my education to good use. I love to write therefore, I choose to write for other people on odesk. Eventually, I will achieve another set of goals that I am working on right now. It is time to make another list to work on throughout the upcoming years. Furthermore, I plan to become an excellent writer in the upcoming months. I love the fact that I am making money off writing articles for other people it may not be much at least it is something. I have learned over the years that you have to work hard for what you want out of life. I have learned that you should not take anything for granted because you may not have it one day. Throughout the years, I have made some mistakes and learned from them. I am not perfect and neither is anyone else in this world. Life is what you make it and something will come along when it is time I am sure of it. I have worked hard the past eight years to accomplish my dreams. Now it is time to put the education that I have to use doing something that I love to do. Writing stories and articles is a truly rewarding experience because you can use your imagination to make something come alive. Now here I am telling the whole world about my accomplishments. I am not asking for anything I am merely bragging about the accomplishments that I have made over the past few years. I have decided to make something of myself and becoming a writer is a wonderful goal.

Advantages on Small Business


Small businesses should focus on one particular advantage because that would be the better way to go especially depending on the area and what is around. Building the business on one advantage at a time will allow the business to become stronger and can go through the other advantages when the business is well established in the ground. Having all the advantages mastered is one of the important things for the business to balance the way the business grows, and increases sales. By focusing on one advantage at a time the small business will achieve the goals and objectives that they have set in place. My family and I are planning to use some space this spring and summer for an every weekend yard-sale. There are openings on either side of the barn that we have and all we have to do is put some tables up and we are ready to go. But while we are doing the yard-sale we are building up the inside for an antique shop by building it little by little and putting the money that we make from the yard-sale back into more tables, and fixing up the inside of the barn to resemble a shop. Being flexible in the services that are offered to the customer’s. We are also planning to sell some fresh produce as well and introduce new things as we go along.

Mission Statements


When I think about a mission statement concerning the business, or organization that I am doing business with it needs to state their position and what their ultimate goal is within the success of the business. I have been in the restaraunt business for quite some time now and I have learned a variety of things over those years. However, most of the business’s that I have worked for do not stand behind the mission statement that they have put in place. Furthermore, keeping track of the things that the mission statement provides like guidelines for the employee’s to follow, and guidelines for the management to follow as well. If the management is not setting the right example for the employee’s this would fall on the profits, and business the company has. Keeping the employee’s informed and interested in what the company is all about which will increase motivation within the company. Business’s develop mission statements will allow the business to create or avoid any unforseen problems that might occur now or in the future of the business.
In my opinion the mission statement is the pride of the company the goals and objectives that the business has set in place to assure them of success in the business world. Standing by the company’s mission statement and taking pride in the work that you do requires hard work and dedication to the company.

My January 2012


Quitting

quit smoking

My year is off to a great start. My fiance and I quit smoking as part of our New Year’s resolution. Some of the other parts were about how to start making money for ourselves instead of spending our waking days working for other people. it is amazing how once you quit smoking you find that the smell is the worst thing besides the health problems that it will cause over the course of a year or two. I have been smoking since I was 17 years old and have finally been able to put them down. We invested some money into the ecigarette’s and they have worked wonder’s in quitting the worst habit that a person can have. I will never pick up another one for the rest of my days. It is a habit that I do not care to have ever again.
