Know what you need or want to do but having trouble taking the next step?

Sometimes we need a little motivation and accountability to put our butt in the chair and do the next thing.

Join our Next Steps Accountability Group, and achieve your goals faster. (And have more fun in the process. 😉)

Embarking on a new endeavor or working toward a new goal can feel overwhelming. It's easy to find anything else to do besides that thing that we need to do.

But telling someone else what you will accomplish each week and working alongside them helps our brains focus and do the next thing. After all, you don't want to have to explain why you are cleaning the grout of your kitchen tile again instead of working on your goal.

The Next Steps Accountability Group provides motivation and accountability to help you implement your action plan for living out your next calling. With encouragement, accountability, and parallel work sessions, you will achieve your goals faster and have more fun in the process.

How can the Next Steps Accountability Group help you?

1. Encouragement

Every Sunday you will receive an email with a tip, article, or encouraging word about achieving your goals.

2. Accountability

It's not required, but you can reply to the weekly email and tell me your goals for the coming week. Telling someone else increases the likelihood of getting it done.

3. Parallel Work Sessions

In childhood, it's called parallel play. In the business world, it's called co-working. In the neurodiversity world, it's called body doubling. We call it parallel working. (See the FAQ below for details.)

Combining these three ingredients creates an environment and expectation that will help you be more intentional, focus your efforts, and make progress toward your goals.

The Next Steps Accountability Group is $20 per month or $200 per year (get 2 months free!).
You can cancel at any time.

Hi, I'm Crystal!

I coach homeschool parents through the transition of finding their next calling when their homeschool journey is complete. I'd love to walk alongside you, too, as you take your next steps!

Frequently Asked Questions

Still have some questions?

Not at all, but telling someone else what you are committing to doing increases the likelihood that you'll get it done.

Parallel work sessions are a time to focus and get something done by working alongside someone else to provide accountability. It's a concept used widely to help people with ADHD or executive function challenges to get their work done. It's often called body doubling.

During a parallel work session, each person works on their own projects (see the next FAQ) next to each other. Remember when your children were little and they engaged in parallel play? They were playing pretend with another child but both were doing their own thing. Parallel work sessions can occur in person or virtually. Obviously, our parallel sessions occur via Zoom.

That's the beauty of the parallel work sessions. You can work on anything you can do with your camera on! A better question might be, what do you need to work on to take a step closer to your goals? People have worked on research about a new career field, studied for a class they were taking, prepared their resume, written an article or blog post, and many more projects.

Parallel work sessions are come and go Tuesdays between 3-5 p.m. CT via Zoom. We'll share our goals at the top of each hour for five minutes, work for 45 minutes, and check in on our progress and chat during the last ten minutes. Over the course of the two hours, you will have a dedicated 90 minutes to work.

Parallel work sessions are held via Zoom. You will receive a Zoom link in the Sunday email for that week's work session. Be sure to check your spam folder if you don't see the email. Don't unsubscribe from my regular weekly emails. If you unsubscribe, your Next Steps Accountability Group subscription will also be canceled.

Not at all! You can come and go as your schedule allows.

If you need to join us in the middle of a work session, you can slip in quietly, drop your goals in the chat, and get to work.

If you need to leave early, you can drop your progress celebration in the chat and quietly leave the room, just like you would if you were at a study session with friends and needed to leave early.

Actually, yes. During the work time, you will mute your microphone but leave your camera on. I know that it might feel a little (or a lot) weird to think about people watching you while you work or you might worry about your family or pets walking through the room while you are working. But you and everyone on the call will be busy working, and you'll probably even forget that we're there! The point of leaving cameras on is so that it doesn't feel creepy. I'd rather know who is joining us for a parallel work session than have someone with cameras off and not know what's going on. Plus, the accountability that someone might see you goofing off is motivating for most people. You can always minimize the Zoom screen if you don't want to see everyone else working.

There are no refunds for the current month of your Next Steps Accountability Group subscription. You can cancel at any time. When you cancel your subscription, you will no longer be charged on your next billing date. You will continue to receive emails and access to the weekly Zoom parallel work sessions until your next billing date.
