Have you ever gone to the gym by yourself versus going with someone else? I’m not saying you can’t achieve your health or fitness goals going by yourself but having a gym partner, a workout partner, can help you be more consistent with your workouts and funner at the same time.
For example, when you are working out by yourself it can be easy to hit the snooze button and sleep in, but when you have a workout partner, sleeping in means you will be letting your partner down. It is the same with having a Business Workout Partner.
A Business Workout Partner Can Get You to Your Goals Quicker
I was about a year into internet marketing, when I finally decided to get serious. I started telling a friend of mine that I really wanted to get serious about making money online. I started to share with him where I was at in my learning process and told him I was looking for some type of system that would show me step by step, how to succeed in internet marketing.
He got excited about the whole idea too and started looking online himself.
This did two things:
- It created energy and excitement between the two of us because every time we would talk we wanted to share information on a different internet marketing system we had learned about and whether or not it might be a good fit for us
- The second thing it did was cut our research time in half because now we had two pairs of eyes looking on the web for the same goal
Within a month we found a system that could teach us step by step, how to build an internet marketing business from the ground up. That system is called the Wealthy Affiliate University or just Wealthy Affiliate for short.
A Business Workout Partner Keeps You Consistent
Just like in Health and Fitness, in the Blogging world, consistency is key. Now I am not saying you need to blog every single day(although many will argue this) but you do need to be consistent, meaning, if you choose twice a week, then consistently blog twice a week. If it’s once a week, then do one. Even if it’s only 1-2 times a month.
Whatever the amount you choose, the key is to stay consistent. When it comes to Google, this is very important, but more importantly, conistency is key for your readers. It let’s them know that you are there, and that you aren’t going anywhere.
Having a Business Workout Partner will help you do just that. Now that my friend and I have been building a business alongside each other, every week, we ask how each other’s business is going, what new blog post have we done, and have we used any new online marketing tools that will help us get to our goals quicker.
I read a great quote not too long ago that said this:
Need motivation to exercise? Get a workout partner. It is harder to let someone else down than yourself.
The same can be said for a business partner as well.
A Business Workout Partner Pushes You to Keep Going
Let’s face it, success doesn’t come overnight. And that is true not just in business but in any aspect of life, whether it is sports, academic, relationships, art, music, to be great takes work.
It is in the work, when we sometimes get beat up, drained, or just down right discouraged a lack the will to keep going. We have doubts and start to second guess ourselves. It is in these moments, when a business workout partner really shines.
He or she, will be the one to encourage you, motivate you, and remind you of “why” you are doing all of it for and “who” you are doing it for. Your business workout partner will kick you in the butt and say, “Hey! Get over it. Don’t worry about it. Keep going. You CAN do this!” They are like your own little Rocky in your corner.
So How Can I Get a Business Workout Partner?
First, I would talk with some of your close friends and family about your ideas of having your own business. They may all be supportive(and that’s awesome) but they might not want to start their own business alongside you like my friend did.
