Today I want to talk to you about the importance of having an accountability partner if your building a business online. In the past 12 years or so I have been pretty consistent for the most part with my business while most other people have dropped off. They’re gone. In other words, they were not accountable to their business for the long haul.
People have good intentions. They sign up and a couple weeks into it most of them are gone. Why is that? One of the reasons is accountability or lack of accountability. So I want to give you the number one best tip on how to stay accountable.
Staying accountable is really simple actually. You see most people try to do it out of sheer will power. They say I’m going to do it and then they don’t end up doing it. Why? Because they are trying to be accountable to themselves.
Here’s a hint. Don’t try to be accountable to yourself because you are your biggest cheater. The key to being accountable is to be accountable to somebody else.
