Business, Bourbon & Blues Review – Raising the Bar on Relationship Building

It’s who you know. It always has been. Relationships are THE critical part of business success, and in today’s overly connected world, they’ve never been more important. Book smarts and business sense won’t cut it. If you suck at relationships, you can’t achieve your goals or true potential.

Accountability is King: Why Group Coaching Works

Finding someone or some group to hold you accountable might be the best thing you can do for yourself. It is too easy to believe your own excuses for not getting something done. It is too easy for life to get in the way of you achieving your goals.

In the Best Year Ever! teleclass series we were all in different businesses and yet the issues we were facing were the same. We were able to learn from and support each other.

Making a decision and committing to actions to a group does dramatically increase the odds that you will actually do what you said you were going to do. Here is one example:

First day of my commitment for Best Year Ever was Wednesday, Jan. 17th. I did my 90 minutes of job-hunting, including finishing the cover letter to <company> (that had begun in draft form more then 10 days earlier, and lay dormant) and CV and sent off (among other tasks).
