Who are you accountable to? 

| 1-min read Stay updated

When it comes to your business, are you accountable to anyone except yourself?

Because if you don’t have any accountability…it’s time to get some!

The first time I ever thought about accountability was at my first HOW Conference in Chicago, where Luke Mysse was talking about having an advisory board for your business—even your one-person business! The whole idea was that these people holding you accountable aren’t family members, spouses or friends. They shouldn’t have a stake in your business, but instead, they should be impartial folks to keep you moving forward.

This really struck a chord with me, because I knew that if I wanted to grow, I needed to treat my business like a serious BUSINESS. I've kept myself accountable in two ways since 2012:

1.       Through coaching with Ilise — if you haven’t taken advantage of her free mentoring session, sign up for it here and read the case study about the first couple years of our work together

2.      As a member of the Designers Roundtable.

My business grew a lot in the past five years, and so much of this growth is due to the decision to invest in my growth and get accountable. And maybe you’re ready to make that decision too?

In my latest blog post, I answer the question:
Is it time to work with a coach?
