After surviving a fatal car accident at the age of 7, Dan LeFave received what he calls “a warning shot,” life’s second chance.

So are you ready for some REAL accountability? Why does accountability not work in the early stages of Entrepreneurship? Because you need an employee and a boss and early stage Entrepreneurs who are solo have to be both so who holds who accountable?  

That is why this new program, Real Accountable, is going to be the new norm for those early-stage solopreneurs, they will take that "boss" role to our founders and hold them accountable to processes like an employee.  It's a crazy concept, create a business for yourself where you are the actual boss but you need to actually be the employee and outsource for that "boss" role.
