Business Accountability At Home - Articles Surfing

"We are accountable for our decisions in our personal life so why shouldn't we be just as accountable in our work life." - Catherine Pulsifer

One of the greatest killers of successful ecommerce is a lack of accountability. When these individuals worked for someone else they were held accountable and were kept *on task*. As a home-based business owner it can be very difficult to stay the course. Beyond the discovery of your priorities it might make sense to identify an accountability partner to help you reach your goals.

The ideal candidate for the position could be a business associate that's a little further down the trail of business experience. It could also be a friend or family member. The wrong kind of individual would be one that will allow you to get away with bad business habits.

*My belief is that personal freedom cannot grow beyond personal responsibility. The more people that learn to be fully accountable for their lives, the more freedom each of us can enjoy and the more fulfilling all of our lives will be." - Reed Konsler

Many will go into a home-based business with the idea that it will free up time for things that are of personal interest. Indeed, this is the objective of a home-based business, but there is a very fine line between freedom and business neglect.

An accountability partner can help you break away from poor work habits and move toward the ultimate fulfillment of your dream.

"He that is good for making excuses is seldom good for anything else." - Benjamin Franklin

A home-based business will never correct poor work habits. If you are leaving a job to become an entrepreneur you need to honestly assess your ability to stay on task without the intervention of a supervisor. If you can*t, you need to either enlist the aid of an accountability partner to help you or reconsider whether a home-based business is something you can adequately undertake.

"I don't wait for moods. You accomplish nothing if you do that. Your mind must know it has got to get down to work." - Pearl S. Buck

Your clients will expect a high level of service and you will either need to provide that level of service or be prepared for an exodus of existing customers and a reputation for less than ideal business principles.

It's understandable that so many wish to follow their dream of business ownership, which is why the notion of an accountability partner is so important to establishing the dream.
