Accountability: August 24, 2014

What I Accomplished

  • Did a lot of consulting work with various clients
  • Started talking to potential customers in validation stage of new idea

What I Didn’t Accomplish/ Need to Improve

  • Didn't hit targeted hours on one consulting gig
  • Need to work on scheduling out my time better so I can keep moving forward on projects. Was more effective on the tasks I did this week vs. last week but still a lot left
  • Health (again)

What I plan to work on Next Week

  • Test out a VA to handle some research that is consuming a lot of my time so I can focus more
  • Research "productized consulting" more - add some recurring revenue into the mix
  • Wrap up a consulting gig and push to start the next one up
  • Keep reaching out to potential clients
  • Try different approach with customers to try and figure out how to pre-sell product (if there ever will be one)

What is this?

Since I’m taking a different path I decided I need a non-traditional way to keep myself accountable. I don’t have many people pushing deadlines on me so it’s easy for me to come up with excuses and not actually get much done. So this is my weekly accountability post. It’s 95% for me to make sure that I have a consistent way to review what I did the prior week. If you stumble upon this and and feel like I was BSing the this week let me know. I won’t be mad. You can email me, call me, or tweet me. Seriously, call me out.
