Even if you’re a solopreneur in business you don’t have to go it alone. Build a resource team to call upon as the need arises. Connect with a mentor through a professional association or source such as SCORE to seek advice and guidance on strategic planning and operations. The SCORE site at http://www.score.org offers a plethora of tools for the business owner. Join a local networking group or online mastermind group to interact with peers and discuss lessons learned. Identify an accountability partner to converse with on a regular basis to outline your business and/or personal goals and have your colleague help you monitor your success or talk about challenges or adjustments to your strategies for goal achievement. If you find you can’t focus on your passion because you’re swamped by administrative office functions, do a quick evaluation and decide what you could outsource to a virtual assistant (VA).
