Digital Vision Board vs Traditional Which Board Inspires You?


Who doesn’t love vision boards? Looking at your goals and desires makes you feel amazing. Another reason is to put good looking models on your wall.  A vision board is an inspirational tool.  Use magazines, photos, and inspirational quotes to create your board. Hence, traditional vision boards (inspiration boards) are popular. For instance, women collect magazines to find specific quotes and photos to create the perfect board. However, many of us post our boards on the wall. In fact, sometimes we forget about them. But what if we could ditch the poster boards, glue, and scissors and create a digital board?

For years traditional vision boards have consisted of poster boards, thumbtacks, cut-outs from magazines of specific photos and quotes glued together to create a unique collage that represents your goals and visions.

For example, women collect multiple magazines throughout the year in hopes of creating the perfect collage of photos, quotes, and other pop art to proudly display on your wall.
