“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”.

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 the proud author of The Accountability Advantage – Play your best game.

I work with high-performing entrepreneurial business owners and their teams. Also, I am a conference and event speaker on all matters of accountability and Getting Stuff Done, both in person and virtually.

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

I followed that book with my following title: Honey, let’s go BOATING! My 101-bucket list of boating destinations in Victoria, which is my home port and where I’ve done majority of my boating. I concluded the boating trilogy with: Honey, let’s sell the BOAT! My 9-practical steps to find the right buyer at the right price. And today, my boating titles and content are still heavily featured during my radio 3AW ‘Beach and Bay reports’ <live> each summer.

My next goal was ticked off soon after my business partner and I successfully sold and exited our boating business after 15-wonderful (and challenging) years together. So now it makes total sense, for me to create my boutique coaching practice aptly named: Tick Those Boxes®. Having courage to reinvent myself was a personal goal for me. I say “bite off more than you can chew, and keep chewing”…

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

Did you know that the A-word, ‘accountability’, is regularly misspelled and often misunderstood? Businesses don’t understand the difference between responsibility and accountability? Both are cousins – but not the same. You see, you are responsible for things, and accountable to people – hence the confusion…

To me, being accountable simply means ‘doing the things you say you are going to do’, and ‘getting your team to do the same’.

Work with me directly and I’ll keep you accountable, and hold you to account for your commitments, promises and goals in my signature and private ‘One-On-One’ Sessions (limited spaces available). Perhaps, you and your team might like to join my ‘Group Accountability Forums’, or simply register for my (D.I.Y) online program ‘Accountability Made Easy’.

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

 

My strong foundation for business and entrepreneurship was built whilst working at Apple 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, and then later in my career I was awarded the Australian ‘Entrepreneur of the Year’ for Dent Global.

 

You can say; I walk the talk unlike many other coaches and advisors out there, without having been successfully in business, and successfully navigate that roller coaster ride that is the entrepreneurial journey.

 

The Accountability Advantage – Play your best game is my newest title written for those who want to hit their goals and deliver on their promises. I share with you my 7-steps on the road to accountability. The Accountability Advantage – Play your best game available now and I’ve got a full playbook of strategies that I’m privileged to share.
