Vision – What am I creating? This would be from my standpoint (features, services/products, $, ideal client, etc.)

Mission – How am I helping/servicing my clients? What are the end results from the clients standpoint?

Purpose – What is it inside of me that makes me do or brings out the passion or drives me to do what I’m doing

Having said that, the problem is that in business, you’ll see mission and vision interchangeable, depending on what book you read. I recommend that you follow my way!
