Accountability Partners. You’ve heard me talk about this before and the importance of having one, but what does that all really mean?
An accountability partner is your right-hand supporter that is by your side through the ups and downs of business. They are there to help coach you into keeping your commitments and achieving your goals.
So why should you get one? I can go on and on about all the reasons why I think accountability partners are the absolute BEST! However, I won’t take up your whole day (lol!), instead, I have compiled a list of my top 6… so without further ado, here are six reasons why an accountability partner will benefit you and your business.
An accountability partner is the best to compare notes with. There’s nothing like having a like-minded person in the same space that can help you think of new ideas, do research, and even use them as a sounding board!
A community of like-minded people will help you see things clearer and help create more success. With these communities being a fountain of knowledge and advice, overcoming obstacles that may be making your goals a little difficult to achieve, may become a little easier to overcome.
You can trust them with the thoughts and feelings that hold you back from achieving your goals. They are able to help navigate through negative thoughts and emotions and keep you focused on your progress and goals. They will give you space, support, and encouragement to overcome your fears and focus all of your energy on your success and growth but they will also make sure to hold your feet to the fire to really keep you accountable. If you promise to get it done, you’ll get it done!
Your accountability partner has to be a person that is able to be assertive and that is able to challenge you when you’re not sticking to your goals. This is a person that you’re able to share your happy news with when you achieve a goal because they want to see you succeed.
You want to be able to meet with your accountability partner at least once a month. You’ll want to talk about what’s new, what the progress is on your goals, and if you’re needing to set additional goals.
Finding the right person to be your accountability partner will be super beneficial, as you grow within your role as a business owner. Being a business owner is definitely a lot, especially when you are growing and there may be things that you will need the extra accountability on… we all do! The right accountability partner is able to find out what you need, how they can help, and provide clarity in your mind.
