Do You Have a Business Buddy?

Performance Tip of the Week – June 29, 2011

If you are a solo entrepreneur, it’s important that you don’t attempt to run your business alone.  This tip is not about hiring a team, although it’s wonderful when you can spread the load.  I am talking about having a support structure in place, be it a coach, mentor, or peer, with whom you can regularly check-in, lean on, or brainstorm.

No matter how tough, or brave, or independent you are, you will increase your rate of success by sharing your path with a like-minded person. How? I’m glad you asked…

Business Buddy Benefits

  • You can hold each other accountable to keep moving ahead.
  • You can challenge each other to grow beyond what you alone thought was possible.
  • You can cheer each other on when the going gets tough, yet again.

Running a business is like running a marathon — you can more easily endure the pain, and push on to the finish line to victory when you have someone running pace beside you.

Who is your business buddy?

    Last year I took the Ladies Who Launch Fresh Entrepreneur seminar with Jan Mc Carthy and she became my accountability partner for the next 90 days. During that time, we had daily calls about business, forward movement, and goals. At the end of 90 days, we both wanted to continue and we have now been talking for about a year. We have supported each others business ventures, successes,and goals. This is invaluable for my success and I am grateful for the ear, the support, and information we share.

      Cyndi, What an awesome relationship you’ve built! Thank you so much for sharing. I always say that it’s amazing what two or more like-minded people can accomplish when they put their heads together. :) Cool!
