BRAND TIP

Find someone to hold you accountable

As a solopreneur, you’ve got a lot of things on your plate.

As much as you might know what you want to achieve and what you need to do to get there, sometimes just ‘getting her done’ falls by the wayside. Pretty soon you’ve got to-do lists up to wazoo, full of overdue items dating back weeks and even months.

We are no different.

Or let me just speak for myself here… I am no different. Four months ago we launched the new FeelGoodAgency website, and since that time I have had the following projects weighing heavily on my to-do list:

1. Launch our blog
2. Start sending out weekly brand tips

Both of these items are crucial to our overall marketing plan, and if I was working with a client there is no way I’d let them run off without having helped them get these things off the ground.

But when it comes to doing things for myself, I’ve been guilty of prioritising many things above just digging in and ‘getting her done’.

The urgent work of client projects, new products and even holidays took priority, and so here I am months after launch having only just set up the blog, and finally sending out our first weekly email.

What made it happen, is having someone to hold me accountable.

It would be great if we always prioritised the things we need to do for our own wellbeing and success above those we do for others. But until we manage to completely reset and re-programme our very beings, this is the next best thing.

(So thanks Emily! Take this as proof that I’ve done what I said I would.)

What about you? What have you been putting off?

If you need someone to hold you accountable then why not drop me a line… I’d love to pay it forwards!

Why are good people, so bad at selling themselves?

Is it just that good people are so focused on doing what they are doing? Or is it that they feel bad about selling or communicating what they do?
