The Benefits of Accountability

The primary advantage of accountability is to create a social contract.

This makes it much harder to come up with excuses to cancel your party.

I’ll send you helpful reminder messages, too, to keep you on track.

It is the perfect social support system!


I remember when I hosted my first cocktail party in New York City. I was terrified! Making the decision that I was going to do it was by far the most difficult part.

But once I committed to it and set a specific date for my party, everything else fell into place. 

When is your party date? I’d love to add you to my private party calendar.

I read every message and reply fast, usually on the same day.
