How to create a kick*** vision board

Guest Post by W4C3 Coach, Andrea Wilson

For ten years, I led an annual vision board workshop in Los Angeles. Though the number of women who showed up varied each year, a core group became regular attendees. We all looked forward to our one evening together in August when we would find, cut, and paste our hearts’ desires from scores of photos and words found in our favorite magazines.
What is a vision board?
A vision board is a visual representation of what you want for your life.
Is there a ‘right way’ to do a vision board?
In my opinion, no. Do what feels right for you. Some people like including a photo of themselves on their boards. You may do your board on poster board, canvas, or any material that works for you.
However, be specific with the words and images you put on your vision board to ensure maximum success.
Why is creating a vision board a valuable exercise?
By using words, photos, and graphics, you illustrate your goals, dreams, and desires.
What types of boards do people create?
You can create a holistic board that encompasses all/many aspects of your life. You may decide to focus on one specific part of your life such as family, friends, partner, career, home, etc.
When should I do a vision board?
At the minimum, create a vision board once per year.
What do I do after I finish my board?
Put your board in a place where you will see it every day. You can buy an inexpensive plastic poster board frame, use clear packing tape to cover your board, or laminate it.
How long will it take me to create a vision board?
Depends. You may spend 3 – 5 hours creating your board.
What materials do I need to create a vision board?
• Standard size poster board or a canvas
• Scissors, glue stick
• A minimum of five magazines that best represent your desires
• Scrapbooking paper, old calendars, catalogs*
• A poster board frame or clear packing tape*
• A photo of yourself to place in the center*
