    Finding an Accountability Partner and Validating your ideas

    Finding an Accountability Partner and Validating your ideas

    When my business partner left the company, I realised you can’t make decisions alone. Those ideas need to bounce off other brains, returning to yours either validated or in need of further opinion.
    If you reach out beyond your immediate connections you can find like-minded people ready to listen and give you feedback. Surrounding yourself with mutual or co-mentors who understand your mindset can be game-changing.
    They read the same books, understand your mindset and more importantly than anything, share their knowledge and experience in a relevant and supportive way.
    If you run a small business from home or you’re growing a company from scratch, advice and support from people who understand is invaluable. Sharing ideas with those people in order to validate them or grab some essential feedback is key to motivating you to move forward.
    You both become your accountability partners – invisibly driving each other on to the next small step.
    It’s because of the importance of mentoring that I set up The Mentor Exchange – so people can connect with other like-minded people and get to know them, talk about their thoughts and ideas, share advice and support, in a space which is secure and inclusive.

    Prologue to The Scwair One Podcast

    Prologue to The Scwair One Podcast

    Before I hit publish on Apple Podcasts I realised something. Starting this podcast would be an opportunity to embrace the difficult conversations which people are having in 2020.

    As the podcast starts its journey to an unknown destination, there are huge, game-changing protests currently happening across the globe.

    Conversations can change peoples' perceptions and opinions and audio is the simplest, most accessible way to have those conversations. 

    That's why I wanted to record a quick prologue for the Scwair One podcast separate from the intro episode, to acknowledge the ongoing struggles and to lend my support where I can.
