"There's always a challenge. If there's no challenge, you're missing. You have to have a challenge. That's how you grow."

In the last episode of the podcast, my Chief Miracle Worker, Chip Franks, spoke to author Akshay Nanavati about the profound benefits of utilizing accountability in our lives – and the power of having a dedicated accountability buddy – in order to help you achieve your goals.

Chip and Akshay also took things to the next level and even announced their own accountability partnership. If you haven’t listened to that episode yet, I highly recommend you click here to do so before you listen to this one.

Today, we’re doing away with the traditional interview format to really explore what Chip and Akshay’s accountability partnership will mean for both of them. You’ll get a behind the scenes look at what this process looks like, discover how it can get a little messy (and why that’s okay), and hopefully get a sense of what could work to help you create a process – and partnership – of your own.


  • How Chip and Akshay outlined goals for their accountability partnership, what they both want from it, and how they created a structure for their check-in calls, goals, and plans for the future.
  • What you can do to lovingly call someone out when they’re repeating unhealthy behavior patterns or underachieving.
  • How to own your accountability partner’s results, honestly and openly discuss what is and isn’t working in this relationship, and the importance of honoring your word.

"My word is my bond to you and to myself. If we can't honor that, we're never going to get anything done. If I’m not going to support you, I'm not going to support my own goals."
