How To Be Accountable In Your Business

I have a personal question for you.

Who holds you accountable in your business?

Are you the kind of entrepreneur who has mentors and business coaches and colleagues with whom you check in regularly?

Do you do it all by yourself and make lists to keep yourself on track?

Or are you somewhere in between?

CONTROL FREAK

When I started my entrepreneurial journey 8 years ago, I thought I had to do absolutely everything myself.

It wasn’t necessarily all a control thing. I truly had no cash on hand to pay others to help me out.

Looking back (thank you hindsight) I realize that I really didn’t understand the value of having a mentor or a coach.

I thought I needed to be a trailblazer. To prove to everyone around me that I could do it all by myself.

Sounds pretty juvenile, doesn’t it?

WHY COACHING IS KEY

Recently I worked with a business coach who not only showed me how beneficial it is to be held accountable by someone else, but that it’s down right imperative.

When Sir Isaac Newton said, “If I have seen further, it is by standing upon the shoulders of giants,” he was really on to something — aside from all the incredible scientific discoveries, of course.

It’s not a cop out to ask for help. It’s self-discovery, a way to improve inside and out.

Finding the right mentor can change how you do business for the better. It can show you how to work smarter and not harder.

It will also hold you accountable and you’ll stop putting things off (if that’s something you tend to do).

GET A MENTOR

Being an entrepreneur can be lonely. Many times you’ll need a second opinion. Having a trusted person to bounce ideas off of can make all the difference.

Consider finding that person (or people) to hold you accountable and help you get to the next level in business.

You’ll be amazed at how many great changes come from it.

To your success,

Melanie
