40 Days to a Better Business: Day 23 – Accountability & Direction

By

40 Days to a Better Business

Part of working from home is being self-reliant and self-motivated. The flip-side of that is knowing when you may need some outside accountability to help you find direction and keep your business moving forward. There have been several times over the years that I have found myself in a rut. I reached out to business friends and other coaches for help in digging out from the rut and giving myself and my business some fresh perspective.

Something to always be on the lookout for is a business mentor. This doesn’t have to be a formal mentoring relationship, although it certainly can be, it just needs to be someone who is further ahead in business and who is willing to tell you the truth about where you are and where you’re headed. Someone who will dispense advice and ask you the hard questions.

It’s also beneficial to find an accountability partner. This would be a colleague or friend/acquaintance who is in a similar place to you in business and is willing to share struggles and prayer requests with you. An accountability partner would walk with you through the hard times in life and in business as you share each other’s burdens  in your business life and spiritual life. This is someone you could have coffee with or check-in with via Skype or a Google hangout, to be there for one another and hold one another to God’s high standard in business and life.

A prayer team is a great addition to any business. No matter what type of business you’re running, you will have struggles as well as victories. You can set up a prayer team by including just a few close friends or business associates. Email prayer requests and praises to them regularly and ask them to be in prayer for you, your business, your clients and your family.

To help your business find direction, you might consider setting up a Board of Directors. This option is often used by ministries,  ministry-related businesses and non-profits. A Board of Directors can help you make decisions about the direction your company should take and keep you accountable in areas like finances, staffing and other areas that may lack direction.

You can also take this a step further and seek out a business coach. A coach will help guide you through the processes necessary to succeed in business. A coach is similar to a mentor, but the relationship is more formal and has a specific end-goal (set by you) in mind. Coaches answer questions and help you meet your goals by pressing you forward to take steps of faith that you might not otherwise push yourself to take.
