    Never had one, I mean lets get real here, what could you say, and who would care?

    our goal is to provide a great service at a fair price......bla bla bla......

    that sounds more like a footer on an invoice.

    stick with doing a good job, and you will do well.

    were not providing long term medical services. were just cutting grass.....

    I have several salesman call me on a weekly basis....

    had one that he just caught me at a bad time.....
    he was explaning to me how I could make more money...... I told him there is only one way for me to make more money, he said O hows that,,,, I quickly hung up the phone and got back to work.....

    I agree with the previous poster
    Google a book called "art of the start"
    Basically he says the same thing, chuck the mission statements and cool powerpoint presentations. Start talking to people that will use your service, start calling on potential customers, just go, move, don't stand still.
