The new year is here. You’ve chosen a word, set an intention, or made resolutions, and you’re geared to go. Whatever your style, January hand-delivers a sparkly start that feels so freaking refreshing. Sweet!
But how often do we begin strong but finish weak? Flag in follow through? Watch optimism turn to overwhelm before we even get to February 1st?
As I wrote in my last post, I know staying on track is tough. I also shared about how having a business accountability partner has made such a huge difference in my own life and work. With her help, I get more accomplished, make more money and feel great about myself at the end of the day. Yay!
For me, the key to confident action versus discouraged non-action is getting support to reach my goals.
Now, I’m wondering if you might like similar help.
Finding an accountability partner is tricky, and while the stars may not need to align, other things do. It takes the right person, similar values, and a structure that works well for you. It takes other things, too, but trust me — with intention, you can find a relationship that boosts both productivity and confidence.
But … screech! … let’s double check to be sure an accountability partner is what will best serve you right now.
That’d be a yes ma’am if you:
- Have tons of goals for building your business but a hell of a time actually reaching them
- Start your day already feeling discouraged about getting everything done
- Wish you were more confident and think you would if you accomplished more
- Thought “doing your own thing” would be fun but it’s isolating and you wish you had more support
If those things resonate, I have some ideas.
After sharing my own accountability story, several gals asked me for help finding a partner themselves.
In case you need guidance, too, I’ll pull together a few tips I’ve learned along the way (and yes, I’ve had partners who didn’t work out). I’ll keep it practical, and short, too. I figure that with my experience and your determination, you’ll be in goal-reaching glory in no time. You can do this!
But for now, start here.
Imagine what an ideal accountability partner might look like. What are her qualities – is she trustworthy? Confidential? Kind but with enough moxie to call you on your shit?
I’d love to hear your ideas, and you can tell me right here. And if you need brainstorm-y help, just ask.
With much warmth,
