#SaturdayMorningHustle advice: #Positioning – You know the story of David vs. Goliath, right? The average man David slew the undefeated giant Goliath with a simple slingshot. But how does this apply to today, and for business? Simple: Positioning. The process of competing by utilizing your business strengths, mitigating your weaknesses and never going head-to-head with your competitor greatest strengths. You can't beat Wal-Mart with price or selection but you can win the customer service battle. Find the place (the position) in your industry that maximizes your strengths without competing with others greatest strength. This gives you best advantge to win. The only way to find your truest position is to be honest about your strengths/weaknesses, research your competition and execute tactics based on this information and not your ego, gut feeling or "how we've always done it" excuses. Good luck! #Business #Success #Advice #Entrepreneur #StartUp #Marketing #Compete to #Win #Strength #Advantage #Profit #Audience #WorkSmart the #WorkHard

#SaturdayMorningHustle on a rainy day, but I'm still motivated. To find success, you really need the ability to change situationally. Not major changes (unless forced) but adapting along the way. Everyone I had interactions with this week needed to make changes in their organization. Some big, some small, some just being open to new things. If any of them had a "how we've always done it" attitude they would have set themselves and their organizations back. Being open to change, listening to collaborative ideas and allowing the problem to be solved instead of insisting they were right was the best, most successful way to solve the problems at hand. Anyone can hold themselves back be being selfish and unbendable. Instead, look for ways to incorporate input from others to open yourself up to better ideas. You can always go back to the "old" way of doing things later if it doesn't work out, BUT you will never find a better way to do things without being open to the process. Until next week, good luck! #Adaptable #Flexible #Collaborative #Success #Hustle #Grind #Work #Effort #EvenOnTheWeekend #Coffee #WorkSmart #WorkHard #Entrepreneur #Business #ProblemSolving #DecisionMaking #Value #OKCSmallBusiness ☁️ 🌧 ☔️⚡️👍🏻👌🏻👏🏻 ☕️ 🍩

Listen to the podcast here.

ICYMI #SaturdayMorningHustle Everyone wants to be successful. #Hustle, #Grind, late nights, early mornings. #WorkSmart, #WorkHard and stay focused. The definition is different for every person as well. Become a millionaire, corner office, Instagram famous, whatever you want it to be. But, along the way, someone opened a door for you, gave you a shot, supported what you were doing or just gave you some helpful advice and encouragement. DO THE SAME THING FOR OTHER PEOPLE! Do not achieve success and then change who you are. For true success, be a part of other peoples success. Create a cycle of opportunity. That's what "making it" is all about. #Entrepreneur #Leadership #EvenOnTheWeekends #Coffee #Donuts #Caffeine #Effort #Win #SmallBusinessOKC #MakeItYourself #NoShortcuts #Motivation #Business #Career #AboveAndBeyond #Entrepreneur #Inspire #Motivate #Opportunity #Success

#SaturdayMorningHustle During a media interview this week, I was asked what advice I would give my younger self if I had a time machine. The interview was about business and entrepreneurship, so my response was this: Go all in, don't play it safe or over-think. Be willing to stick your neck out and take risk. Don't make reckless or stupid decisions, but do push yourself and your business fast and hard. Commit! Put yourself out there for the business you want to create and avoid holding yourself back in order to avoid potential shortfalls. Nothing great ever happens in your comfort zone. Make a plan, do your homework and then GO FOR IT with everything you have. If you can't do that, then maybe the entrepreneur life isn't for you. #Hustle #Grind #WorkSmart and #WorkHard #Entrepreneur #Leadership #EvenOnTheWeekends #Coffee #Donuts #Caffeine #Effort #Win #SmallBusinessOKC #MakeItYourself #NoShortcuts #Motivation #Business #Career #AboveAndBeyond #Entrepreneur #Inspire #Motivate
