A few things every business needs, but CEOs just don't want to take the time to plan for….. a #SaturdayMorningHustle plan to prepare your business for the worse while staying focused on being the best. ⠀ ⠀ A few themes were a part of my week that I want to share with you today as something you can work on today (and tomorrow):⠀ 1. Crisis management and communication protocols⠀ 2. Succession planning⠀ 3. Reputation management⠀ ⠀ Why do these things go together? I'll tell you. First, no one wants to plan for bad things like a crisis, the loss of an important business leader or unflattering reviews BUT you need to. Just like insurance, you need to have protocols, action steps and decision making processes in place BEFORE YOU NEED THEM. Just like insurance, you hope you never need it, but when you do it's a major factor in continuing successfully. ⠀ ⠀ Listen to the podcast today, as I explain all three, why they are important and the steps you need to take this weekend to begin these processes. Too many C-Suite leaders use the excuse of "taking away from day-to-day operations to not future plan. So my answer is to do it on the weekend, Now you don't have an excuse. You can't expect your business to run its lifespan without hiccups (or major f@#$ups). Get ahead of those missteps now. ⠀ ⠀ Listen or subscribe to the Saturday Morning Hustle #Podcast on #iTunes http://bit.ly/SatMornHustle on #GooglePlay http://bit.ly/SMHGooglePlay on @anchor https://anchor.fm/kyle-golding and streaming on @Spotify http://bit.ly/SaturdayMorningHustle.⠀ ⠀ It's Saturday, I'm in the office so it must be the Saturday Morning Hustle.

Good morning, it's Saturday and I am NOT in the office. That's right. I'm not in the office this week, but I have a really good reason to skip the #SaturdayMorningHustle this weekend.⠀ ⠀ Today, I'm spending some time with friends who are going through some some hard times. I'm more focused on what's really important – friends, family and helping people. ⠀ ⠀ That's my motivation for being successful, so I have the ability to support people when they need me. There are a lot of ways you can do important things for the people in your life. Some big, some small, some you don't even know your doing. ⠀ ⠀ But, I didn't skip the #SaturdayMorningHustle podcast the week. I expand on the ideas of how we chase success so we're able to be of service to others when they need us. Check out the podcast for a full discussion. Let me know what you think.⠀ ⠀ Finally, to all the people who take the time to mention the #SaturdayMorningHustle social media post and podcast – thank you. You keep me motivated to do it again each and every week. See you next Saturday.⠀ ⠀ #SaturdayThoughts #SaturdayMotivation #Inspire #Success #Motivate #KeepItReal

How does this equate to long-term success?"⠀ ⠀ Think about that for a minute, then listen to the podcast for the answer in detail and how you can use this idea in your business (and life) pursuits.

Yes, the #SaturdayMorningHustle is all about that #RiseAndGrind but burnout is a real thing, even for the most dedicated hustlers. Everyone eventually hits a wall, but it's different for each individual. So how can you stay at maximum efficiency to avoid crashing into the wall? Find ways to have a little fun. You make a plan to work hard, so also make a plan to avoid burnout. Take small breaks, find fun things to do while waiting for files to download, check social media only during coffee breaks or stops and call someone – an actual old fashion phone call to your BFF or parents or significant other just to remind you why you work so hear. #WorkSmart and #WorkHard for success. A bit of gamification or pauses in your overall hustle goes a long way. ⠀ ⠀ What do you think? How do you keep from burning out or losing effectiveness? Let's talk about it. #Hustle #Grind and #HaveFun – How Is that Possible? Avoiding Burnout.⠀ ⠀ It's Saturday, I'm in the office so it must be the #SaturdayMorningHustle.

For Success, Build The Foundation FIRST! #SaturdayMorningHustle ⠀ ⠀ It's an old saying but it applies perfectly to start-ups, entrepreneurs and business owners: "Crawl before you walk". Seems simple, but too many people want overnight success and do not want to be patient. The process of creating a business structure for the "Great Idea" that could become a start-up or changing and existing business plan for a major pivot is not the sexy part of entrepreneurship. It's hard work. It's saying No more than Yes because the audience, the market, competition, cost and other realities won't allow for every crazy idea to be explored. It's finding what works best and do that. A lot of that. It's a whole lot of paperwork. It's being patient.⠀ ⠀ Why? Because that's crawling before you walk. Once you have a well-developed and vetted idea, you can build a brand to support the product/service. Then you can create the marketing strategy, the sales process, the distribution and delivery mechanisms. Now, you can start. Without all that, you will most likely not draw any attention at all and fail. If you draw attention but can't actually conduct a transaction, you fail. Even if you get attention and conduct the first transactions, can you sustain that? Once you can sustain your business, you have something that can be successful and create real wealth and opportunities for you, your family and friends.⠀ ⠀ That's the ultimate goal. Take the time to give yourself the best opportunity to reach it.⠀ ⠀ Bonus Advice: If you’re working a product or business just to get rich, stop now and go get a J-O-B somewhere else. Have passion and energy or #GTFO.⠀ ⠀ Subscribe to the #SaturdayMorningHustle podcast on #iTunes http://bit.ly/SatMornHustle on Google Play http://bit.ly/SMHGooglePlay on Anchor https://anchor.fm/kyle-golding and streaming on Spotify http://bit.ly/SaturdayMorningHustle ⠀ The Saturday Morning Hustle t-shirts are now available for everyone at http://bit.ly/SMHshirt and https://saturdaymorninghustle.com⠀ ⠀ #Grind #Hustle #SaturdayThoughts #WorkSmart #WorkHard #RiseAndGrind #Process #EntrepreneurAF #EvenOnTheWeekend #SaturdayMotivation #StartUp #Success #Strategy #Business #Win
