Embrace Accountability


Why do you want to be an entrepreneur? If you answered “to be my own boss” or “to be able to do things my way,” well, okay, but you’ve got a few things to think about. This kind of freedom comes with a price. In short, personal ownership equals personal accountability. Accountability means not affixing blame but rather finding solutions. It is doing the right thing because it’s the right thing. It is taking ownership of your choices and all of the resulting consequences. No “pick and choose” here.

We are fascinated by people who, without concern for the outcome, just do the right thing. We are also intrigued by those who, in an effort to avoid being held accountable, do whatever (right or wrong) it takes to avoid accountability. It is our belief that many people chose to not be accountable because they fear the unknown. If you fear accountability it follows you will fear entrepreneurship.
