The #SaturdayMorningHustle on a #SmallBusinessSaturday – Let's talk about how important small business is for our local, state and national economy. The majority of people in the United States are employed by small businesses. This time of the year, #BlackFriday and #CyberMonday get all the attention and a lot of your $$$. ⠀ ⠀ To make sure we don't lose our small businesses due to the holiday "big box" retail push, Small Business Saturday is essential. Almost as essential is #GivingTuesday on the 27th for supporting non-profits. So. get out there today and spend some of your cash on goods and services from small businesses. Locally owned businesses employ people and buy/sell raw materials and support items. All of this creates tax opportunities for your city and state. ⠀ ⠀ Keep your money local, support great employers and be a smart consumer by shopping at a small business (or 7) today. Thanks! See you next week. Good luck!!⠀ ⠀ Check out the Saturday Morning Hustle podcast on Anchor App, @Spotify #iTunes http://bit.ly/SatMornHustle or #IGTV (link in IG Story).⠀ ⠀ #RiseAndGrind #Entrepreneur #WorkSmart then #WorkHard #Business #Success #Truth #EvenOnTheWeekend #Grind #Hustle #StartUpLife #NoExcuses #BusinessOwner #Dedication #Commitment #SmallBusiness #Career #AboveAndBeyond #Advice #Inspire #Motivate #Opportunity #Effort

Something struck me recently about the changing ideas of what makes one an entrepreneur, business owner, influencer, leader, etc…. #SaturdayMorningHustle advice: It's not always the guy in a slick suit or Zuckerberg hoodie. It's not that simple.⠀ ⠀ This last week I've interviewed a few entrepreneurs, hosted a small business/entrepreneur event and been in multiple meetings. Every time, I looked at the people involved and realized there was no "set" type of person. Old, young, male, female, suit-and-tie or jeans and a t-shirt types. All types of people, pursuing their career or other passions while trying to find ways to make it all work. That's the common bond – making your "thing" work because that's what you want to do with your life. From that, comes the common traits of successful people. Drive, determination and work ethic. You gotta want it and you gotta be willing to work for it. Not just long, hard hours but odd, not convenient hours. ⠀ ⠀ Are you willing to do more than "the other guy/girl" to be successful? That's what really matters. Not what you look like, where you came from, what your favorite band is or how "cool" you are. That's the common denominator. Good luck, see you next week!⠀ ⠀ #RiseAndGrind #Entrepreneur #WorkSmart then #WorkHard #Business #Success #Truth #EvenOnTheWeekend #Grind #Hustle #StartUpLife #NoExcuses #BusinessOwner #Leadership #Dedication #Commitment #CoffeeAndDonuts #SmallBusinessOKC #NoShortcuts #Motivation #Career #AboveAndBeyond #Advice #Inspire #Motivate #Opportunity #Caffeine #Effort #Win

You can only do one, so choose! Make Excuses -OR- Make Progress. Do you have #SaturdayMorningHustle in you or not?⠀ ⠀ If you're in it to win it, then you have no time for worrying, blaming others or finding reasons not to do something. If you want to be successful, get to work! ⠀ ⠀ #Hustle #Grind #EvenOnTheWeekend if you're a true #Entrepreneur #BusinessOwner or #1 employee. Grab a cup of #Coffee and a #Donut and #DoWork.⠀ ⠀ #RiseAndGrind if #Success is what you want. It's all up to you. The only thing you can control is your #Effort, #Focus and #Passion for what you do. ⠀ ⠀ Procrastination and excuses -OR- accomplishments and success. Like the old saying goes, #Winners never quit, and Quitters never win. It's all up to you.⠀ ⠀ One month ago today I missed a Saturday Morning Hustle for the first time in over a year due to complications from surgery. But, I didn't let missing time off work, being sore and uncomfortable while healing stop me from reaching goals and getting my work done. You can do it too. Like Nike says, Just Do It! #GoodLuck⠀ ⠀ Check out the #SaturdayMorningHustle podcast on Anchor App, @Spotify #iTunes or #IGTV (link in IG Story). #ThankYou #Saturday #Coffee #Donuts #Caffeine #Motivation #WorkSmart #WorkHard

The #SaturdayMorningHustle is all about effort: #Hustle and #Grind #EvenOnTheWeekend BUT you can’t lose sight of why you’re doing the work. Dont forget what it is that motivates you to put in that extra work. The people who are important in your life, a drive to be the best you can be or simply taking a challenge head on. ⠀ ⠀ With the upcoming holidays are full of distractions, but you can’t let that kill the motivation that you’ve created all your long. At the same time, you shouldn’t ignore family and friends in order to put in extra work on your side hustle, start-up, self brand or small business. So how do you balance the Entrepreneur life during the holidays? Adapt. ⠀ ⠀ In Nov. and Dec. your regular schedule will be tested. The “extra” time you find on nights and weekends will be less thanks to holiday parties, shopping and family time. The key is to find new, often smaller, times and situations to utlize. Stay motivated, focused and most of all organized. Use free time between work, family and fun times to prep for dedicated work times. Make the most of what you can, when you can. All without skipping out on the important people in your life. ⠀ ⠀ Enjoy some time off for the holidays. Spend time with family and friends. Recharge your batteries and reaffirm your motivation. ⠀ ⠀ See you next week. Good luck! #RiseAndGrind #Entrepreneur #WorkSmart then #WorkHard #Business #Success #Truth #StartUpLife #NoExcuses #BusinessOwner #Leadership #Dedication #Commitment #CoffeeAndDonuts #SmallBusinessOKC #NoShortcuts #Motivation #Career #AboveAndBeyond #Advice #Inspire #Motivate #Opportunity
