Running your own personal business can be very challenging because you will need to oversee everything… from finance to human resources, from business transactions to getting new clients, from handling unsatisfied to client relationships, from technical support to market research and so on… the list goes on.
Unless your business is already well established, you would most like ly need to do everything that is related to your business initially. Therefore, practicing personal accountability is crucial to a personal business success. Please read on to learn how you can make yourself accountable.
When starting a personal or home business, there are three important things to manifest in order to succeed: responsibility, self-empowerment, and personal accountability.
If you want to be successful in a home business, you need to learn to be a responsible business owner. You see, running a business is not a casual undertaking, the odds of failure are staked upon your shoulder. If you are not accountable, your business is not going to survive for long. Your competitors are going to wipe you out very quickly.
Everything you do in your business such as making decisions, getting into a new market, hiring employees, obtaining a business finance, deciding on a joint venture with other people, etc. All these need high personal accountability. You don’t want to be deemed as a fly by night business owner. You accept the responsibility of managing your own business and enact on it during the start and on-going process of its operations.
Being responsible or personally accountable for your business means you are answerable to whatever the outcome of your actions and decisions will be in managing your home business.
You see, when you are running your own personal business, you cannot blame other people if thing does not go as planned because you are accountable for your own business.
If the business fails, you are the only person who is at fault. It is not easy to be a successful business owner or entrepreneur, you need to be able to accept failures. In fact, almost all successful entrepreneurs had gone through some hardships and failures before they achieved success. There are prices and sacrifices to pay in order to succeed.
Next thing to learn is to be your own “watchdog.” Watch out on your own actions and moves, be very honest to yourself because no one knows how to help if you are not being honest to yourself. You can find a mentor and seek advice, but if you can’t be honest to yourself, no mentor in the world can help! Remember that there is no place for blaming and finding excuses. It is your personally managed business, so no one is left to blame when things don’t work out, except yourself.
