#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). Hit me up on Anchor, Instagram, Twitter or YouTube with questions, comments and feedback. It's Saturday, I'm in the office so it must be the Saturday Morning Hustle. Listen to the podcast every weekend while your competition is still sleeping. https://saturdaymorninghustle.com⠀ iTunes: http://bit.ly/SatMornHustle⠀ Spotify: http://bit.ly/SaturdayMorningHustle⠀ Anchor: https://anchor.fm/satmorninghustle⠀ Google Podcast: https://bit.ly/SMHGooglePod⠀ YouTube: https://bit.ly/SMHvideos⠀ ⠀ Swipe right for 2017 "The word of the day is FOCUS!" #SaturdayMorningHustle advice: Stay in your lane, do that thing you do the way you do it. 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

Happy 4th of July! Slide Right for the #SaturdayMorningHustle Flashback (2017) Want to be an #Entrepreneur or run a successful business? Avoid SM "experts" using inspirational quotes + stock photos of exotic cars and vacations. Instead, pay attention to people willing to share practical advice on how to build a business on a day-to-day basis. Don't let them sell you a "system" or "one weird trick" to success. Watch people who #Hustle #Grind and share #Advice along the way. Other people's success doesn't stop you from having success. Good luck to everyone willing to work hard for your dreams. Once you make some $$, don't blow it on superficial stuff.⠀ ⠀ Check out the Saturday Morning Hustle podcast for a full 15 minutes on these subjects and more advice for building a brand THE RIGHT WAY in 2020/21.⠀ ⠀ #Entrepreneur #WorkSmart then #WorkHard #Business #Success #Truth #EvenOnTheWeekend #CoffeeAndDonuts #Grind #Hustle #StartUpLife #NoExcuses #BusinessOwner #Leadership #Dedication #Commitment

Today I'm expanding of a #SaturdayMorningHustle social media post from 2017 about getting started, creating momentum and not being worried about being great when doing something for the first time. You didn't know how to ride a skateboard or bike the first time you tried. Learn through doing. It's the same for running a business or being an entrepreneur. There is no single way to be successful. It's all trial and error. Keep getting back on the board and trying again.⠀ ⠀ Swipe right to see the original video. #Longboarding at our 1219 Creative office. 😬 Sorry for the squeaky board trucks on the flashback clip. Let's talk about it. It's Saturday, I'm in the office so it must be the #SaturdayMorningHustle. Listen to the podcast every weekend while your competition is still sleeping. ⠀ ⠀ #GoodLuck #Business #Success comes from change. #Entrepreneur #WorkSmart then #WorkHard #Truth #EvenOnTheWeekend #CoffeeAndDonuts #Grind #Hustle #StartUpLife #NoExcuses #BusinessOwner #Leadership #Dedication #Commitment #Change #OnTheGrind https://saturdaymorninghustle.com

#SaturdayMorningHustle pearl of wisdom today: Everyone is not your client/customer. One of the things I get the most response to at #BeersAndBranding is that to be successful your brand must be highly specialized with an extremely specific target audience. The quickest way to fail is trying to be everything to everyone. You have to find a true position in your industry, differentiate yourself from the competition and then continuously work to stay connected to your best customers. It sounds simple, but that's a lot of work every day, never actually ending. You can't stop, because the world around you will keep changing. This is the challenge of running a business. You can embrace these ideas and do well or do things your own way and go bankrupt. If I can help you find your path to success, hit me up in the DM. #GoodLuck #Business #entrepreneur #Success #AudienceDevelopment #Positioning #Marketing #Advice #WorkSmart then #WorkHard #EvenOnTheWeekend @beersandbranding

Super excited for #SaturdayMorningHustle prepping for 2 upcoming @beersandbranding live events. Not familiar with #BeersAndBranding yet? It's a great event for marketing professionals, business owners, entrepreneurs, artist and non-profit pros to get in a room together, have a beer to relax (Thanks @Anthembrewing for that) a bite to eat (Thanks @okemployeescu for that) then answer each other's questions. We have a panel of experts answering specific questions, not generic "How To" talking heads. Check it out at www.BeersAndBranding.com #GoodLuck #WorkSmart then #WorkHard #Marketing #Entrepreneur #Business #Success #BusinessOwner #SelfBranding #Communications #Beers & #Branding #Career #Advice #NotYourDadsMarketing #DigitalMarketing #SocialMedia Did we mention we have #Beer too?

"Planning is worthless without execution" #SaturdayMorningHustle in the office today getting caught up on great marketing, advertising and communications projects for clients, @TheGoldingGroup and @BeersAndBranding (if you don't know about #BeersAndBranding check it out now) with a bit of #Business #Success #Advice – Execute at the level of execution your create with your advertising! Do not create expectations you cannot meet. Focus 10Xs more on executing with your client/customer than attracting them to the business. Your sales team, customer service rep or person behind the counter asking "do you want fries with that" will become the face of your company during that transaction. #Entrepreneur #WorkSmart then #WorkHard #Truth #EvenOnTheWeekend #Grind #Hustle #StartUpLife #NoExcuses #BusinessOwner #Leadership #Dedication #Commitment #MeetingExpectations

#SaturdayMorningHustle is all about collaboration. Just like this portrait @UndrellMaholmes shot of me for his art show at @1219Creative. Be open minded, willing to hear other peoples ideas and fluid in your process in order to create something bigger than yourself. I spoke with so many people this week (clients, employees, potential clients, friends, new acquaintances, etc.) who all had interesting ideas and points of view. It's so cool to take all that in and make yourself better. Good luck! #Collaboration #Process #Entrepreneur #WorkSmart then #WorkHard #Business #Success #Truth #EvenOnTheWeekend #Grind #Hustle #StartUpLife #NoExcuses #BusinessOwner #Leadership #Dedication #Commitment #1219Creative
