What Do Community Events & Q4 2020 Have In Common? #SaturdayMorningHustle Flashback 3 and 4 years ago this week. Still a GREAT idea and maybe more important in 2020 than it was in 2017/16. . . . . . (Swipe 1) Here's a #SaturdayMorningHustle idea for you. Replace one of your "traditional" marketing buys with a creative community collaboration event to benefit a local nonprofit, school or cause. Bring together as many local businesses as needed. The key is not selling anything or asking for anything for your business. Just do good in your community. The positive attention will benefit your business (and all involved) better than an ad or commercial. Stay connected to the nonprofit, creating additional attention for them and you. Good luck! (Swipe 2) Flashback 4 years ago. Get some bonus time in while your competitors sleep. #GoodLuck #MakeYourOwnSuccess #Entrepreneur #WorkSmart then #WorkHard #Business #Success #Truth #EvenOnTheWeekend #CoffeeAndDonuts #Grind #Hustle #StartUpLife #NoExcuses #BusinessOwner #Leadership #Dedication #Commitment The Universe doesn't owe you anything, so #GetToWork and stop complaining. – 2016 advice that’s still highly valid in 2020.

You probably suck at something, right? We all do, so why let that hold you back from trying something new or developing better talents, skills & expertise? Go from suck to proficient to an expert to a master be focusing on getting better, not on failing. On the #SaturdayMorningHustle today we're talking about how to start at the beginning, work the process, learn, develop, adjust and practice (with a massive amount of patience) until you start progressing your way through the stages (amateur to master). The key is an open mind and a positive attitude. We can't achieve perfection, but we can continually strive for better. Focus on improving, not on what you lack. ⠀⠀ Hit me up in the comments below or on Anchor, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube with questions, comments and feedback.

#SaturdayMorningHustle Flashback topic from 3 years ago: Focus for Success! Harness the power of focus to create successful opportunities for yourself. Never do something simply because you “can” or because there’s money to be made. Instead, focus on activities you have passion for it. Don’t chase money, because it never works out correctly. Stay in your lane. Stay focused.⠀ ⠀ One of the excuses I often hear for not focusing on a singular or small set of activity is missing opportunities. But not focusing most often takes a business in too many directions at the same time. Focus on your core offerings instead of diluting your brand your message and your communication. Be the best at what you do, not a jack-of-all-trades / master of none. ⠀ ⠀ Good luck! Let me know how I can help you and your business. I'm here to help (and drink coffee).

Too many people look at ways others are making money or having success and want to add that to what they are already doing. This is a terrible idea.⠀ ⠀ The best business is very specifically focused on a core offering. That is what people expect and like about doing business with you. Adding extras for no reason other than you can do it (but you're not the best at it) or just to make "easy" money dilutes your brand, message, customer experience, staff attention, etc…. PLUS you will be competing with those you are copying. The advantage is theirs.”⠀ ⠀ To be successful, stay focused!" #Focus #Strategy #Specialize #Success #Hustle #Grind #EvenOnTheWeekend #WorkSmart then #WorkHard #Entrepreneur

The key to success: Change Management. #SaturdayMorningHustle Flashback 3 years ago this week + 2020 #COVID19 updated strategy. ⠀ ⠀ The key to business success is how you handle change. Winning comes from making small movements, not large pivots or failure to change at all. Business change can come from losing or gaining a client, losing your best employee or new competitor entering your market. Do not overreact! Stick to your business plan, strategy and marketing tactics as long as you can until it's evident that you must make a change. The market will tell you when it's time for adjustments. ⠀ ⠀ When you do make changes, do it concisely and decisively. Winning at business means being able to handle change better than the other people in your space. Adapt and adjust. You can't be the "flavor of the week" and try something new all the time, but you also can't stick to "this is how we've always done it" and never make adjustments. Choose a happy medium between the two concepts. ⠀ . . . .

#SaturdayMorningHustle The Accidental Entrepreneur – If I can do it, you can do it. Can you believe I have owned or operated my own business (of some sort) for over 30 years now? I didn't even know the word Entrepreneur when I started. Now, I'm a full-time #Entrepreneur helping others do the same. It's not for everyone, but everyone can benefit from adding an entrepreneurial mindset. ⠀ ⠀ @TheGoldingGroup is the latest in a long line of business ventures I have been involved in since my first when I was just 15 years old. To hear the full story, from the music business to marketing to business development, listen then make a comment with your own story.⠀ ⠀ Saturday Morning Hustle Flashback – I posted a social media video 3 years ago (swipe right) fully explained along with what makes an entrepreneur, why new businesses are important and what this means for non-entrepreneurs. Today, I'm expanding on that idea and going WAY deeper into the process, the unexpected events and what it all means. ⠀ ⠀ Hit me up on Anchor, Instagram, Twitter or here on YouTube with questions, comments and feedback.

#SaturdayMorningHustle Advice: Focus On What You Can Control. There is a LOT happening in the world around us right now that's completely out of our control. So what are we supposed to do about it?⠀ ⠀ Focus on what we can control (improve) and create enough positive actions at the grassroots level to push back on all the negative things we have no control over. How, you might ask. With this simple formula: Communication – Connection – Empathy – Understanding – Collaboration – Solutions. Need to know more? Listen up. We're starting a bottom-up push of positivity, community and problem-solving. Join the conversation. ⠀ ⠀ It's Saturday, I'm in the office so it must be the #SaturdayMorningHustle.

Continuing on the #SaturdayMorningHustle theme from last week: Success is a journey and not a destination and the path is full of unexpected deviations. Today on the podcast, I'm using my own long and winding journey from my first business (when was only 15) in the music industry to where I am now as the head of a strategic planning and business development consulting firm. The path between the two is not anything I had planned, but being adaptable and keeping myself moving in the right direction ultimately offered the potential for personal and business success. ⠀ ⠀ The key is learning how to balance "sticking with the plan" with knowing "when to get out" of a plan that just won't work BUT not too soon or making major changes too often. It's the ultimate balancing act.⠀ ⠀ Last week, I talked about Luguentz (Lu) Dort, starting shooting guard for the OKC Thunder NBA franchise. His story just might be your story (not really, but we can learn from his unconventional path to success).⠀ ⠀ Not sure what I mean? Let's talk about it.⠀ ⠀ It's Saturday, I'm in the office so it must be the #SaturdayMorningHustle.
