As a visionary, you probably have a million ideas.
Ideas pour into your mind in the shower, when you are driving, and even when you are dining with friends, you just can’t turn off the continual flow of creativity.
When you allow yourself time to create, like most visionaries, you get lost in time, almost as if minutes merge into hours, and before you know it, the clock strikes midnight and you realize you haven’t moved in hours.
Visionary entrepreneurs thrive in the generation of new ideas, products and programs. It’s your life blood. Its what fuels your inspiration. Its the fun part of being an entrepreneur, that’s for sure. The problem when it comes to building a profitable business that’s making a big difference isn’t getting a vision of what you want…its sticking with it till its done.
And done doesn’t mean its in the wrapper ready to ship. It means you’ve maximized your profits and impact with your idea.
There’s a significant difference for a visionary between the starter energy and the finisher energy.

- Are pioneers and innovators who many think have “crazy” ideas that could never work.
- Can see the big picture vision (but lack the steps between today and the big vision.)
- Tend to move at the speed of light.
- Get things started quickly, but then move on to the next idea just as fast.
- Often over-stretch their commitments due to unrealistic ideas of time to complete things.
- Rapidly move from today’s hundred ideas to tomorrow’s next hundred ideas (and expect everyone else to keep up.)
- Love taking an idea and transforming it into a real, money-making product.
- Excel at getting things done.
- Have an excellent grasp at prioritization and time management.
- See the steps and can reverse engineer any big vision into an action plan.
- Often lack the spark of initial ideas but thrive in the production and completion.
Now if an entrepreneur is super lucky, they can swing between the mind of a starter and a finisher – but that’s rare! The key for creative “starters” is to align with someone who can help them get things done. That means hiring support people who can take your ideas, carve out time to work on them, and guide them into profitable offerings. A visionary starter who lacks finishers can often experience an erosion of their confidence with a trail of half-baked ideas that never make any money.
A starter also needs to own that their genius is in getting ideas in motion — and give themselves permission to hand off their ideas to finishers so that they can stay in their zone of genius. A starter who is forced to finish things will often sabotage the project or give up before it ever makes money.
If you are a finisher it’s probably tough for you to get started. Knowing that you need help getting a clear idea is essential for you to stay in your zone of genius. Hiring a coach can be helpful for you to flush out your ideas. Or even better, partner up with a bold visionary so that you spend more time in your strength– getting things done!
