My friend Mindy Haidle and I have become accountability partners. It started when we both left (somewhat) comfortable jobs doing (somewhat) interesting work. But then what was next? For me, it’s Ambeti and figuring out how to be the greatest help to the folks who are *this close* to misdiagnosing a business problem. For her, it’s helping the C-suite fall in love with their customers all over again.
Accountability also carries responsibility. We meet once (or twice) a week. We IM and text interesting and relevant articles. We give honest and unvarnished feedback. We also cheer each other on. We convince each other to write every day for 100 days. We are invested in each others’ successes or failures. We show up for one another. Things that seem simple but are incredibly meaningful. So here’s to showing up today and being there for Mindy and having her be there for me.
