I’ll do it with you.

Let’s work together privately.
Work One-On-One with me in private client sessions, which are designed to achieve the greatest impact and measurable results for you and your business.

We will meet your deadlines, achieve your goals and get results. This is my most popular program, numbers are limited, so don’t miss out.

All prices shown include
GST. Subject to change
without notice.

How does this work?

How long is each session?

How regularly will these sessions be held?

Can I reschedule or rearrange session times? What happens over the mid-year and Christmas/NY breaks?

Can I get a recording of our sessions?

Can I get in contact, or have access to Darren outside of our sessions, should I need assistance?

Following each session, you’ll get a written list of those tasks you agreed to complete, and due dates for their completion.

I’ve got a couple of cost effective ways you can pay your session fees:
1> Pay-By-The-Month
2> Pay-In-Full to SAVE 10%.

PayAdvantage* is the convenient and secure, automatic direct debit system we use. You can choose to pay from your nominated bank account or preferred credit card each month on a set day for the duration of your program. (PayAdvantage surcharge* applies.)

Pay-in-Full with bank transfer or your preferred credit card. You save 10% off your program fee when you pay in full before the start of your program.

Can I stop my program, before the completion date?

These ‘One-On-One Private Client Sessions’ are my most popular program by far, and I’m always in high demand. This program has been created specifically for entrepreneurs and business owners. Remember, that I’ve walked your path before, so I know how testing it can truly be. This program is designed to achieve the maximum impact, and measurable results for you and your business. I only offer the opportunity to work with me ‘One-On-One’ for 6 and 12 month programs.  Most clients will choose to renew for another term after their initial program ends, as results and outcomes are clearly visible to them and their teams. I will hold you accountable, and make sure that you fulfil your promises, goals and commitments to others and to yourself. We’ll meet your deadlines, achieve your goals and outcomes.

Note: Places are limited due to my capacity, and the high proportion of annual renewals. Register now, to save your spot!

There are two unique components coming together to ensure maximum effectiveness during our Zoom sessions. Firstly, we’ll have an extended (long) session of 90-120 minutes each month to discuss your strategy, issues, developments, opportunities, your wins and your losses. Secondly, to support and keep you focused on this every week, I’ll call you on Zoom (or your mobile) to check-in on your progress and hold you accountable for what was agreed. This 30-minute weekly check-in is designed to ensure you are progressing steadily with clarity and momentum. Implementation and execution are key to holding you accountable and achieving your goals. Remember, my goal is for you to achieve your goals.

Each month, you spend up to two hours with me during our in-depth (longer) session. Plus the weekly 30-minute check-ins to ensure that you do what you say you are going to do, and get your team to do the same. This is accountability at its best. Everything is documented and recorded (where possible), so there is NO excuse, no blame and no finger-pointing. Just deliverables, actions and progress. PLUS, I’ll throw in an extra “BONUS Session” or two along the way, so that we can focus more on the areas that require greater time and further discussion.

Each month, 4 sessions with me.
A longer two-hour session & weekly 30-minute check-ins.

Make-up sessions will be added to all active programs during annual leave breaks (usually a few weeks in July and the Christmas / New Year period). It’s nice to stay fresh, and we all have to care about our health and wellbeing. If you, or a team member, need to reschedule an agreed date, or wish to move your regular cycle, I would be delighted to help, where possible. Please give a minimum of 48 hours notice to change dates, otherwise you may forfeit that session. Wherever possible, I am flexible, so let’s chat if you need to change any future dates and times.

Yes, recordings are available from all our Zoom sessions (sorry, not for mobile calls and face-to-face visits). The recordings will be available for download from our shared DropBox for your review and implementation. Naturally, recordings are made with the permission of everyone involved.

Yes, the participants can contact me outside our agreed session times for advice, clarity, focus, support and assistance. I love hearing about the WINS, and we’ll review the losses. I’ll be there for you, regardless of outcome, to support and encourage you. You are welcome to call me, but I am often in session, so I can’t speak, but I will always call you back as soon as possible. Text or email is always best.

Yes, emailed to each team member after the session.

Fine print: If you wish to cancel the program at any time, you can do so with a minimum 30-day notice period for cancellation of direct debit. If you have paid in full, I will issue you a transferable credit that can be used by another person for the rest of your enrolled program. 

My ‘Author Accountability Program’ was specifically designed for authors who have engaged Andrew Griffiths (the world-renowned author and writing coach) and/or Michael Hanrahan from Publish Central (Australia’s leading publishing and production house) for all authors wishing to self-publish.

This ‘Author Accountability Program’ has me working directly with authors for 3-sessions. We’ll work ‘One-On-One’ through the agreed publishing plan, to ensure that your writing deadlines and manuscript completion are met. I’ve written 4 books, so I know this process well indeed. I’ll liaise with either Andrew Griffiths or Michael Hanrahan to ensure we are all in sync and on track to assist you to complete and publish a world-class book.

UNBOXING SESSION

- No obligation Whatsoever -

Our Unboxing Session is FREE of charge, no obligation, and takes just 45 to 60 minutes. We’ll speak via Zoom video call or over the phone – I’ll call you.

To prepare you’ll need your ‘To-Do List’ or business ‘wish list’ on hand. If you don’t have either, don’t worry – we’ll create one during our session together.

Note: You’ll need to be a willing participant in the session if you want to get the most out of it. I expect you to be open and honest as we discuss your life and business plans, and as we begin to challenge your habitual thought patterns.

The Tick Those Boxes Unboxing Session will provide you with 4 significant outcomes. We’ll:

  1. Undertake a 45 to 60-minute discussion about your business and its goals.
  2. Examine your priorities to encapsulate what needs to be done.
  3. Review your ‘To-Do List’ and examine its implementation and execution.
  4. Create a plan and set timelines for you – together.

By participating in this Unboxing Session, there is a lot you could gain from the experience, yet very little to lose.

On the other hand, if you keep the status quo and do nothing about your situation, it’s the same as sticking your head in the sand, hoping it’ll all just go away. This is procrastination, the most powerful thief of self-confidence. 

Hoping your situation will improve without taking any action is simply wishful thinking. Doing nothing only compounds the issue, ensuring tomorrow’s results will be the same as yesterday.

Focus is the mighty tool of self-confidence.  Don’t even think about starting; just focus on taking the first step.

Here is an excellent idea to consider: The day you take the first step towards achieving the task you’ve been procrastinating – often the major step holding you back – is the day you beat procrastination.

Unbox your goals and begin achieving them NOW!

How I operate is outlined Here: Rules of Engagement (Service Agreement). Check it out and then book in your Unboxing Session.

Game Changing Facts

A research study undertaken in the USA in 2010 identified the factors that determine the percentage probability of completing a goal, task, or project. Here’s what the research concluded – it’s incredibly exciting!

You have a:

  • 10% probability of completing your goal if…  you have an actual idea or goal.
  • 25% – If you consciously decide you will do it.
  • 40% – If you decide when you will do it.
  • 50% – If you plan how you will do it.
  • 65% – If you commit to someone you will do it.
  • 95% – If you have a specific accountability appointment with a person you’ve committed to.

Knowing this, how likely are you to achieve your goals, promises, obligations, and commitments on your own?

'HOPE' IS NOT A STRATEGY

Doing nothing and hoping it’ll all sort itself out definitely doesn’t work. Forming a plan is a strategy, while its implementation and execution are key.

Create certainty in your life and business by acting on your intentions. You can make them a reality.

You won’t read about hope in famous business books by Richard Branson, Gary Vaynerchuk, Andrew Griffiths, or Daniel Priestley!

7 SIGNS YOU NEED ACCOUNTABILITY

  1. FEELING OVERWHELMED –You’ve got too much going on at once; there’s too much to focus on.
  2. OVER-AMBITIOUS –You’re unable to say NO, overcommit and bite off more than you can chew.
  3. NO PLAN –You want to complete a specific task but get side-tracked. ‘If you fail to plan, you are planning to fail.’ (I bet you’ve heard that one before, right? It’s Benjamin Franklin. He got sh!t done.)
  4. PAST PROBLEMS HOLD YOU BACK –Whatever stopped you from achieving in the past is still lingering, messing with your head.
  5. YOU DON’T KNOW WHERE TO BEGIN –This is procrastination. Your ‘To-Do List’ gets bigger while your unfocused mind takes forever to actually begin.
  6. YOU DON’T HAVE A BIG ENOUGH REASON –There’s no genuine motivation to get the task done so you move on to the next item before you’ve even completed the original job.
  7. NO ONE CARES –No one’s holding you to account to ensure you do what you say by the date it’s due. There’s no support to get you and your team/staff to do the same.

YOUR HEAD IS BURIED
IN THE SAND

Waiting to see if the situation improves by itself is called ‘sticking your head in the sand’, and that only makes matters worse.

Tomorrow’s result will be the same as today and yesterday, unless you take action. Einstein called that “the definition of insanity”.

Wasted time, missed opportunities, and upsetting the important people around you (including yourself) is all that’s likely to happen. 

You’ll only waste more time, miss those golden opportunities, and piss off everyone in the process.

Take action now, to stop the cycle.

Former Executive at Apple Inc., and Now Successful Entrepreneur:

I’m Darren Finkelstein, The Accountability Guy® – Accountability Coach, Business Advisor, Mentor, Author, and Speaker, and I have something of value to share with you.

I help high-performing individuals and teams achieve results, pursue their wildest dreams and smash their goals like glass pinatas with a cricket bat. I leverage over 30 years of experience in the corporate world, within small businesses, and as a successful entrepreneur.

Together with my previous business partner we built and developed an astounding full-service business in the marine and lifestyle industry before successfully selling and exiting the business after 15 years. Therefore, I have a deep appreciation for what it takes to succeed as an entrepreneur in highly competitive and established markets.

I’ve written several award-winning and bestselling books and am a summer presenter on Radio 3AW. My popular  ‘Beach and Bay’ reports focus on the outdoors and living life to the fullest in and around Melbourne, Australia.

My strong business foundation 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 presented the famous Golden Apple Award for Sales Excellence, while later in my career I also won the Australian ‘Entrepreneur of the Year’ for Dent Global.

Do you know the word accountability is regularly misspelled and often misunderstood? Businesses don’t understand the difference between responsibility and accountability. They’re cousins, but not the same.

You are responsible for material items and accountable to people. Being accountable means: ‘Doing the things you say you’re going to do, while ensuring your team does the same.’

Working with me means I’ll be holding you to account on your commitments, promises, and goals. We’ll action this in our One-on-One Sessions (Limited spaces available), or with your team when you join one of my private Mastermind Group Forums.

If you want to do things at your own pace, try Accountability Made Easy – my D.I.Y. online learning platform. Or consider reading my latest book, The Accountability Advantage – Play your best game.

If you’d like to know more about private one-on-one programs to, check out the Working with Me page.

Hoping everything will sort itself out is not a viable option. My full playbook of strategies will ensure you never follow the status quo ever again!
