Over the past few months, I’ve talked to a lot of entrepreneurs who are passionate about their ideas and ready to make them happen. Whether they’re just learning to code and taking online design courses, or they’ve got the code skills but are new to business, the biggest challenge many face is staying accountable and motivated even when things get really difficult.
So, how do you stay accountable to your work and your tech goals?
During this chat, we’ll talk about finding mentorship and accountability partners, and how that can help you go from great idea to a great action plan.
I’ve had accountability partners in the past, and what I appreciated most was that they were also trying to stay accountable in their own work, and they could see things from my perspective and help me understand what I was trying to achieve. Hopefully, I did the same for them.
Some questions to think about:
- When things get difficult in your tech/entrepreneurial work, who do you turn to for advice?
- Do you have mentors/advisors/accountability partners? How has that helped you achieve your goals?
- Are you serving as mentor for someone else? What has that process been like?
- What advice would you give to someone looking for mentorship?
