I know you’ve heard the story of me falling into a funk and sleeping on my sister’s couch for 18 months in my early twenties. One thing you probably didn’t know is how I got out of this funk.
I wanted to record a solo round on this topic because it’s one of the most powerful tools I’ve ever used to shift my life — it’s called creating a personal advisory board.
If you haven’t heard of it before, a personal advisory board is a group of people that you build around you to give you wisdom, inspire you, and, most importantly, create accountability.
You may be wondering what the difference is between an advisor and a mentor — the truth is there is a big difference.
A mentor is someone you look up to. You may know them, but you may not. Chances are, today, any mentor you have can answer your questions through resources they’ve created. Maybe it’s a book, a podcast, or online articles.
Board members are people you know much more intimately. It’s also important they have an invested interest in your success.
Ultimately, they have skin in the game when it comes to you.
But it goes beyond that. An advisory board can help you in all aspects of your life. It’s a team for success and they are there to call on throughout the year and see your goals through to the end.
No matter where you are at in your life and business, you need an advisory board. Without it, you’re either going to stay stagnant or move toward your dreams much slower than you could with it.
