A recent study by The American Society of Training and Development on accountability found you have a 65% chance of completing a goal if you commit to someone. But, if you have a specific accountability time and person/group to report to, you’ll increase your chance of success by up to 95%.
Accountability is without question the secret weapon of the worlds most accomplished athletes and business people.
The good news: you don’t have to be an Olympic athlete or business mogul to take advantage of this powerful tool.
Does It Really Work?
Two year ago my client Lynn set a goal for herself: double her business revenues in one year. She sells a clothing line for women on Amazon and while her clothes were beautiful, and she practically drips talent, she had not seen the kind of financial success she wanted. She had been “going it alone” for 3 years with only marginal increases in sales and an ever increasing list of expenses. This time she wanted things to be different and made a commitment to my weekly accountability group.
In the group she received guidance on growing her company, along with support and encouragement when things got tough. She applied solutions from other industries (from members who had already solved her problem) to her own business with great results.
Lynn did double her revenues in the first year. Then, she doubled them again the following year. She lowered her Operating Expenses by a whopping 43% and increased her own salary $75,000.
If you accomplished your current Revenue and Salary goals this year, how would that change your life?
The Key To Success
Finding the right group is key to your success. Being matched with like-minded entrepreneurs creates an environment of learning, growth, and achievement. It fosters motivation and team spirit – helping you go much further than you would on your own.
Look outside your industry so there is no worry of being in a group “with the competition”. You want a safe space where you can be totally open, honest, and vulnerable for maximum benefit.
Choose a group with a strong leader who will be totally honest with you. Sure, it might be a little intimidating at first but this is how you grow. Surround yourself with people who will NOT let you off the hook and see just how much you can really accomplish.
If you have been searching for the right group – and are serious about meeting your goals – my name is Jennifer Dawn and I lead both small and large groups that meet on a weekly or bi-weekly basis.
I personally “hand-match” participants for maximum results and break goals into quarterly segments so they are easier to manage within busy schedules. Groups do require an investment ranging from $195 – $795 per month. This guarantees every member shows up 100%. They show up for the group, and they show up for themselves.
I have led accountability and mastermind groups at a national level, been a trusted advisor to companies starting up their own mastery groups, and have coached hundreds of business owners through my private practice.
I have a passion for helping others achieve their most deeply desired goals – and it gives me tremendous pleasure to see my clients succeed beyond their beliefs.
