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.
