I was reading some emails from my list and I realized that there is an important lesson that few people talk about when trying to build an online business. It was something that was very powerful for me personally.
When a lot people are getting started with their home-based, small business they want to do everything themselves. The want to be completely self-reliant.
That's a terrible goal to have for a couple of reasons.
Building a Business Is LONELY
Having a person to reach out to and share your successes and failures with is vital.
If you don't have friends that understand what you are doing your going to end up sitting at your desk for 20 hours a day and your going to be miserable.
Even worse you are going to sacrifice your relationships with your friends and family.
You need someone that understands your excitement when you make progress.
If you don't build relationships with people that understand what you are building, you are just setting yourself up for failure.
Don't Try To Do Everything Yourself
A lot of people miss the boat here. They want to learn and do it all themselves. I am not saying that you shouldn't keep learning.
For me personally, I learn better through doing. So I need to find people that I can emulate.
The key to fast growth in your business is to find people with different skill sets than you that you can learn from.
It doesn't matter if you actually have a real "partner" (see the video.. 🙂 ).
Just make a list of 4 things that you can accomplish today and write it down. Email it to someone or just post it on this blog.
Give it a try for one day. Post your accountability list as a comment.
