How to Establish Personal Accountability at Every Level of Your Business

January 9, 2020 2 min read Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own. In this video, Entrepreneur Network partner Mike Phillips discusses how to stay accountable to yourself and your higher-ups. He states that accountability and responsibility are two different things. Responsibility is often associated with personal duties you must complete. Accountability is the series of steps and evaluations afterward. How well did you complete your tasks? As a manager, if you want to improve your staff’s accountability, often the options are limited to striking an unspoken deal with them.

These “anti-wealth hackers” often have deeply entrenched negative behaviors. January 8, 2020 2 min read Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own. In this video, Entrepreneur Network partner Jeff Rose discusses the individuals depleting your wealth.  If you want to improve yourself, as Warren Buffett once said, you should look to gravitate toward people you admire or have traits you desire to possess. By surrounding yourself with these people, you can soak up these good influences and possibly adopt a few of those traits. Rose explains how this type of individual does not let his past mistakes define his future decisions.

This Crucial Mindset Will Help You Conquer Your Personal Finances

Healthy habits will follow a healthy mindset. November 18, 2019 2 min read Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own. In this video, Entrepreneur Network partner Brian Tracy emphasizes that self-discipline can be the solution to any financial problem, big or small. If you’re in financial trouble, evaluate the times when you find yourself wanting to make impulsive, momentarily gratifying purchases. Most times these habits are supplemented by loans and credit cards, which will only add to your personal debt and worries.  Tracy points out how, beginning with childhood and their first relationship with money, people become conditioned to want instant gratification from money. This is similiar to a child receiving an allowance and running to buy a candy bar … followed by another and another. Many people act out this behavior later in life by constantly associating consumption with happiness.  Tracy says the start to financial independence is exercising self-discipline. If you are not naturally known for your […]

Constantly looking for validation through comparison is a surefire trap. November 13, 2018 2 min read Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own.
