MY BOOKS

‘Darren’s newest accountability book is
very timely for me …

‘I’m great at working on projects I enjoy,

but when it comes to networking, marketing,

or other stuff I’m uncomfortable with,

I use whatever excuse I can to procrastinate.’

– Anetta Pizag

From Boats to the Boardroom...
What!?

darren-finkelstein-2020

G’day, I’m The Accountability Guy®, a sought-after Accountability Coach, Business Advisor, Mentor, Radio 3AW Presenter, and proud author of, ‘The Accountability Advantage – Play Your Best Game’.

I work with high performing entrepreneurs, business owners, and their teams. I also speak at conferences and events (in-person and virtual) on all things relating to accountability and Getting Stuff Done.

The Boat Guy

I wrote my first book, ‘Honey, let’s buy a BOAT!’, which became an award-winning bestseller and hit the Top 5 on iTunes. It’s an iconic boating book written for the novice boatie and wannabe ‘old salt’.

I followed the first book with, ‘Honey, let’s go BOATING!’, a 101 bucket list of boating destinations across Victoria, my home port, where the majority of my boating experience comes from.

Concluding the boating trilogy, I wrote, ‘Honey, let’s sell the BOAT!’, offering 9 practical steps on how to find the right buyer at the right price.

Today these boating titles and content are still heavily featured in my Radio 3AW, ‘Beach and Bay’ reports each summer.

The Accountability Guy®

My next goal was ticked off the list when my business partner and I successfully sold and exited our boating business after 15 wonderful (and challenging) years together.

It now made total sense to create a boutique coaching practice aptly named, Tick Those Boxes®. Having the courage to reinvent myself was a personal goal. I say, ‘Bite off more than you can chew, and then keep chewing!’

Today, I offer my skills and experience as an Accountability Coach, Business Advisor, Mentor, and Author/Speaker working closely with high performing entrepreneurs, business owners, executives, and teams to ensure full accountability. This means lifting output, smashing tasks, and hitting GOALS as we Get Stuff Done.

Did you know the ‘A-word’, Accountability, is regularly misspelled and all too often misunderstood? Businesses don’t understand the difference between responsibility and accountability. They’re cousins, but not the same.

You’re responsible for things, but accountable to people.

Being accountable means doing the things you say you’re going to do and getting your team to do the same.

Work with me directly and I’ll keep you accountable, holding you to account for your commitments, promises, and goals in my signature private ‘One-On-One’ Sessions (limited availability). You and your team can also join my Group Accountability Forums or register for my (D.I.Y) online program, ‘Accountability Made Easy’.

Accountability is critical when building a successful business. This goes for the business owner, staff, and teams alike.

My strong foundation in business and entrepreneurship was built while working at Apple Inc. for 10 years as Manager of Commercial Markets during the inspirational Steve Jobs era (Yes, I met Steve!) The pinnacle for me was being awarded the famous Golden Apple Award for sales excellence. Later in my career I was also awarded ‘Australian Entrepreneur of the Year’ for Dent Global.

Unlike many business coaches and advisors who haven’t attained business success, I walk the talk. I’ve actually navigated the roller coaster ride that is the entrepreneurial journey.

‘The Accountability Advantage – Play Your Best Game’ is my newest title and it’s written for those who want to hit their goals and deliver on their promises. I share my 7-step ‘Road to Accountability’ in conjunction with a full playbook of strategies I’m privileged to share. Available now.

Stay safe and enjoy the read!
