The power of accountability is undeniable. Psychologists use it. Universities use it. Large organizations use it.
So now the real question is, are you using accountability to grow your business?
As far as I see it, there are two types of accountability—personal accountability and peer accountability. When you're a consciousprenurial spirit like yourself, you need both.
Personality accountability is your own sense of responsibility.
Successful entrepreneurs don't just own a business, they actually Own It. The success of your business doesn't depend on the wholesale supplier, the summertime slump or the new-years-resolution crowd.
The success of your business depends on your strategy and your actions.
If you truly believe this deep down in your core, you already have a strong foundation for your business success.
But don't get too excited, there's more.
Peer accountability is where things get challenging. As entrepreneurs, we are so guilty of creating this little bubble for ourselves. I myself am guilty of not seeing daylight for days on end. Projects, launches, client calls...who has time for a community?

Community promotes growth by holding you accountable. If you've read a single book or article on goal setting, you've read about the power of writing things down. There are entire books dedicated to preaching the gospel of putting your goals in ink as a path to achieving them.
But a list of goals in your diary pales in comparison to telling your kula that you're going to launch your next program by January 20th, 2015.
I am all for stress reduction in life–I am, after all, a yoga therapist. But, we get by with a little pressure from our friends. (That is how that one goes, right?)
I've been an entrepreneur for over a decade. I have read every goal-setting book out there. I have prayed and meditated on business success.
I've written more Dear Diary letters about my business dreams than I care to admit. But nothing is as powerful as telling a group of like-minded people what you want to accomplish.
Well, that may not be entirely true.
The only thing more powerful than telling them, is them being there to support you, share their knowledge and check in with you regularly.
But it's not easy to find these people.
It's challenging enough to make regular friends once you graduate from college. (Why do you think I went back to college? Ok, that's maybe only part of the reason.) But finding friends who have chosen the uncharted path of consciouspreneurship? It can feel impossible.
It's taken me most of my career to create a network of women who are determined to be wildly successful at doing amazing work in the world.
But I found them.
And now I'm inviting you all together so that we can hold each other accountable. But I couldn't stop there. (I mean, have you ever known me to be the type to invite you over just for appetizers? I think not!)
I want to support all of you— I want to give you all of the resources that I've spent time creating over the last several years. And I want to give you information on the topics that are of most importance to you—the topics that are going to help you get shit done.
So what exactly am I calling this secret society of conscious entrepreneurs committed to whole health, mindful wealth + balanced business?
Conscious Entrepreneurs (kula).
