Who Holds You Accountable?

Hey I found this nice article from youngentrepreneur.com and thought of sharing it with you

“One of the things I’ve found with many startup entrepreneurs is that they get very excited about new ideas and don’t have the patience to actually follow through on the execution part of it. Most entrepreneurs have a million business ideas running through their heads but continue to jump from one to another instead of sticking with just one.

I’m a part of a Mastermind Group here in Toronto where business owners from different walks of life come together once a month to discuss their businesses. We talk about our plans, our problems, and our goals. Throughout the month we also set up a weekly call with one of the members to help everyone stay accountable.

It’s easy to set goals but then never follow through. When you commit to someone else, however, you are more likely to take action and achieve your goals.

Do you have someone to hold you accountable? It could be a family member, a friend, a business partner, or another entrepreneur. What’s important is that you respect the person, ideally they have some business experience, and you will listen to their advice.

Once you find an accountability partner set regular times to touch base. It could be quarterly, monthly or weekly – as long as progress it being made in between check-ins. You could connect by phone or set up a face to face meeting. Choose a format that best suits your learning style.

Connecting with other entrepreneurs on a regular basis also helps you stay motivated through the tough times. It can help rejuvenate you, give you more energy, and fill you with ideas to help you get over the business hurdles you are facing.”
