People Will Steal Your Ideas. Do It Anyways! #SaturdayMorningHustle⠀ ⠀ That's right, not everyone on the planet is ethical (or honest). Plenty of people you have never met (or might be very close to you) are willing to take other people's ideas and pass them off as their own. I'm not condoning it, I'm just telling you it can/will happen. But, you still need to innovate. Come up with new ideas, approaches, tactics and ways of doing things. Do not let the potential theft of your next great idea slow or stop you. Put yourself out there, and see who does it better. Focus on your audience and your success. Anyone looking for a shortcut will end up short in the end. Make them work hard to keep up with you. Stealing ideas and claiming credit is not sustainable. Go for it! Check out the podcast too. http://bit.ly/SMHustle⠀ ⠀ #SaturdayMorningHustle #BestOfLuck #GoodLuck #Hustle #Grind #WorkSmart and #WorkHard #Entrepreneur #Leadership #EvenOnTheWeekends #Marketing #Branding #Advertising #PR #PublicRelations #SocialMedia #Promotions #Profit #Win #Motivation #Business #SelfBrand #Career #Process #Motivate #OKCSmallBusiness #OKCEntrepreneur #StartUp #OKCStartUp

The most practical advice I can give you on the #SaturdayMorningHustle is this: Start every idea, project or promotion the same way you build a business. Begin with the best idea possible. Don't be an "us too" offering but really find something new or a new way to do it. Make sure that idea solves a problem for people. That makes it valuable, something people will pay you for. Set your idea apart, differentiate what it is, how it works, how you deliver it, etc…. ⠀ ⠀ Do all of this with your audience wants and needs in mind, not your wants (or ego). If you do that, you will have something people are willing to pay for, delivered the way they want. Last but not least, make sure it's profitable. That profit will pay back startup cost and keep you going when things are not working perfectly. If everything goes well, profit will make it possible to expand. Measure, adjust, do it all again – just better. #GoodLuck #Hustle #Grind #WorkSmart and #WorkHard #Entrepreneur #Leadership #EvenOnTheWeekends #Conversion #Measurement #Marketing #Advertising #PR #PublicRelations #Promotions #Profit #Win #Motivation #Business #SelfBrand #Career #Process #Inspire #Motivate #OKCSmallBusiness

Today on the #SaturdayMorningHustle, I translate the business marketing process into a simple format with tips everyone can use for your next event, non-profit organization or building your Personal Brand – artist, musician, #entrepreneurs, fitness, SM influencer, etc…. Goals, strategy, objectives, tactics, measurement and adjustment is the process (we discuss this fully on my business podcast The Golding Group #NeoMarketing on iTunes) which might seem like a lot of work. But, for an individual or smaller project this process can be simplified if you understand the basics. That's what I'm going to give you in 5 minutes this morning. What you do with it will be up to you. #GoodLuck #Hustle #Grind #WorkSmart and #WorkHard #Entrepreneur #Leadership #EvenOnTheWeekends #Conversion #Measurement #Marketing #Advertising #PR #PublicRelations #Promotions #Profit #Win #Motivation #Business #SelfBrand #Career #Process #Inspire #Motivate #Podcast #Video #OKCSmallBusiness
