Taking Radical Responsibility in Your Business
Today’s episode is about radical responsibility. It’s a concept that I’ve been thinking about for a little while now. The results you see in your life, the results that have arrived or shown up in your life because of what you’ve done, that’s on you. You gave the cause and the effect showed up, and you need to own those actions. That is what radical responsibility is. It puts you in the driver’s seat and says you’re the one in charge.
This is empowering. It says that you have the power to influence and attract and bring about results in your life. Let’s explores the areas where you can take radical responsibility in your life.
“Be solution oriented. Leave the past in the past and just move on. Let’s figure out how to fix this. Move on and learn from our mistakes. Take that radical responsibility and move forward.”

In this episode Avani talks about:
- Where she found out about radical responsibility and why she’s been thinking about it.
- How you can use radical responsibility to your advantage.
- How you can apply radical responsibility to your business.
1. Your team
Your team ultimately reports to you and you’re responsible for what comes out. If something goes wrong, ask yourself how you could have corrected that mistake or process. Did you give them the tools they needed? You have the power to make sure things turn out right with your team. Use that power!
2. Your clients
If something goes wrong, or your clients don’t like your result, own it and figure out a solution. Don’t get defensive. Ask important questions, recoup, and redeliver something amazing.
3. Business development
I talk about this all the time: you need to be doing business development. If you’re not, you need to take radical responsibility for the fact that clients aren’t coming through the door and you’re not moving the needle in the direction of more dollars.
If you want to know how much money you’re going to make and what you’re going to pay yourself, you need to take radical responsibility for your finances. I know it’s hard (I hated it), but it’s important. Ask yourself what you can do to increase those margins or get your money back into balance.
