Best Tools For Creating Vision Boards
Updated: March 20, 2020
You know what vision boards are and you know you need to create one. The problem is where do you start? There is no right or wrong way to make a vision board. There is also no single tool to do it with. The only real rules are to be specific and make the board a reflection of your goals.
Vision boards are an effective tool for truly understanding your goals, growing your business, helping with personal growth and achieving your entrepreneurial dreams…
As I write this post I am creating a vision board for my upcoming vacation in Cape Cod. The house we will be staying in, where people will sleep, meals to be prepped, safety for the grandkids. My daughter-in-law and I are sharing documents through Google Docs on an itinerary, meals we want to have, things to do. I am envisioning some quiet time to reflect and be quiet mentally.
What is your vision?
Pinterest is one of the easier tools for making vision boards. You don’t need glue, markers or poster board. All you have to do is collect images that represent what you want to achieve. You can create different Pinterest boards for every goal. If you’d rather keep your boards private, create private Pinterest boards instead. The best part of this tool is your board is always with you.
My daughter and I used Pinterest when she was getting married to keep track of ideas; dresses, flowers, venues. It worked like a charm. She gave me ideas of what she wanted and then I recreated them. The floral arrangement one of the reception tables emerged from this creative endeavor.

Evernote is another portable vision board creation tool. Most people think of it as strictly for note-taking. Use it instead to create vision board pages complete with images and text. You can easily print them out if you want to hang them up in your office.
Posterboard is a popular method. You can hang the board on your wall to look at every day. Plus, it’s fun to get your hands dirty by gluing images or drawing with markers. Putting the hard work into creating the board makes it even more meaningful. If you need any inspiration on creating a physical board yourself, look no further than the Vision Board Samples Pinterest board.
Most people know the basics of using Google Docs. You can use Docs and Sheets for organizing your goals and then use Slides or Docs to create vision boards. You can share your boards with others, edit them whenever you want and print them to hang up. Plus, it is free. Of course, any office suite works well for this purpose.
David Coen recently emailed me about a blog post he created about vision boards. He produced some excellent content. You may want to check out their online Design Wizard tool. There is a free version and a paid version.
Try each of these tools to see which ones work best for your needs. Many entrepreneurs find having a physical and digital board works best so they feel inspired no matter where they are.
