It's such a simple #SaturdayMorningHustle concept: #SocialMedia – Platforms for people to connect with each other from anywhere at anytime without limitations. It's like everyone is invited to the party, class, meeting, conference, exhibition, etc. no matter where you are or how you get there. BUT the platforms quickly declined into the home of trolls, spammers and scam artist. There is hope!⠀ ⠀ I'm seeing a shift in how people understand social media, the internet, mobile technology, etc. and it's for the good. Entrepreneurs, marketers and business decision-makers are pulling back from selling and doing a better job of communicating by being social. Like the wise man once said, start with your WHY long before you get to the how, what and for how much.⠀ ⠀ Don't use SM to prospect wide and close what you can, but instead tell your story and connect with people as people. What you want them to do (buy something, go somewhere, support a cause, vote, riot, etc.) will naturally occur once you take the opportunity to create relationships. THAT is what social media is supposed to do. ⠀ ⠀ Good luck, see you next week!⠀ ⠀ Shoutout to @christieowenart for being positive, doing things in the right way and sharing her motivation with others. Way to go! ⠀ ⠀ It's Saturday, I'm in the office so it must be the #SaturdayMorningHustle. Listen the full 5 min.

Roller coasters are supposed to be fun because you get to climb to the top of the track, look around at everything and then all-of-a-sudden whoosh your diving downward at top speed. Twist, turns and even loops. That's great fun at an amusement park but not when running a business. A metaphorical roller coast ride as an entrepreneur is having an epic high like a new client, big check or other great success but then what goes up must also come back down. Often in business, these highs and lows happen in the same week. That's the roller coaster. ⠀ ⠀ So, what do you do? Strive for a more predictable middle. Avoid making decisions when you're at the very top or very bottom. Understand that neither the euphoria of wins or the dread of a loss (taking an "L") is permanent. Predictability is key to a successful business, so go after those highs to balance the lows (it happens to everyone, not just you) but work towards consistency. The roller coaster is a lot of fun, but it's exhausting at the same time. If you want a long, healthy career try staying off the roller coaster or at least try to make it a short ride. ⠀ ⠀ Don't think you're bulletproof when you are on top and don't quit just because you came crashing back down. Balance yourself and understand we all take this ride from time to time. ⠀ ⠀ Good luck! See you next week. May the Forth (5/4/19) be with you. It's Saturday, I'm in the office so it must be the #SaturdayMorningHustle.⠀ ⠀ Listen the full 5 min. #SaturdayMorningHustle Podcast on @Spotify http://bit.ly/SaturdayMorningHustle or #iTunes http://bit.ly/SatMornHustle or @Anchor.fm https://anchor.fm/kyle-golding or Google Play http://bit.ly/SMHGooglePlay⠀ ⠀ #RiseAndGrind #EvenOnTheWeekend #WorkSmart #WorkHard #Entrepreneur #Business #Career #Advice #Success #Coffee #Caffeine #Dedication #Consistency #Predictability #SaturdayThoughts #SaturdayMotivation

It's an exciting #SaturdayMorningHustle weekend around here! Startup OKC – A Weekend-Long Startup Competition is happening in our building @Project3810. I love this stuff! Shoutout to @StartupGrindOKC for making it happen.⠀ ⠀ Young, up-and-coming entrepreneurs all get in a room to meet, discuss potential business ideas and form teams to develop the best ideas and pitch to a panel of experts for constructive criticism. It's the process of starting a business, just shrunk into a weekend and executed in a safe space for learning and developing as a professional.⠀ ⠀ If you're not interested in the process, feedback, change and working within realistic expectations than you have no business calling yourself an entrepreneur. An open mind, adaptability and strategic (not just tactical) thinking are the keys to starting and managing a successful business. ⠀ ⠀ So, what is Startup OKC? Startup OKC is a 3-day event during which teams of participants pitch ideas for new startups. They then form teams around the ideas presented, and work the entire weekend to build an MVP (minimum viable product), identify customers, refine MVP, market research, customer validation, refine MVP, validate, business model & rollout strategy, pitch prep & finally on Sunday evening. Pitch!⠀ ⠀ Throughout the weekend participants network with other teams and individuals at Startup OKC. Mentors will be in and out throughout the weekend. The mentors are some of the best and innovative minds from around Oklahoma City.⠀ ⠀ Good luck to everyone participating in Startup OKC and all of you out there in the universe. If you need some advice from a mentor, hit me below or at TheGoldingGroup.com.⠀ ⠀ See you next week. It's Saturday, I'm in the office so it must be the #SaturdayMorningHustle.⠀ ⠀ #Hustle #Grind #EvenOnTheWeekend #StartUp #Process #Entrepreneur #Business #Development #Pitch #Feedback #ConstructiveCriticism #Adapt #Pivot #Process #Success #WorkSmart then #WorkHard

#SaturdayMorningHustle Advice: Stop using the term "Failure". Stop embracing the idea of failure as a part of success. It's not! You will have negative events, setbacks, errors, missteps, undesirable outcomes, bad results, screwups and near disasters – but not failure because failure is the final level opposite of success. Failure is when something is so bad it ends the campaign, project, business, etc…. ⠀ ⠀ Take these "less than ideal" outcomes and make the necessary adjustments and corrections to create a better outcome the next time. Do NOT embrace the failure, but fight harder to never be in the predicament again. Focus on turning weaknesses (we all have them) into strengths and creating opportunity from setbacks. ⠀ ⠀ Swipe Right Bonus Idea: You're going to hear more No more than Yes. It's a statistical thing. But, a No is not a failure, it's a minor course correction. Keep focused on success.⠀ ⠀ Subscribe to the #SaturdayMorningHustle podcast on #iTunes http://bit.ly/SatMornHustle on Google Play http://bit.ly/SMHGooglePlay on @anchor.fm https://anchor.fm/kyle-golding and streaming on @Spotify http://bit.ly/SaturdayMorningHustle. ⠀ ⠀ #Success #Opportunity #Advice #SaturdayThoughts #Failure #Hustle #Grind #EvenOnTheWeekend #RiseAndGrind #Business #Entrepreneur #SideHustle #StartUp #WorkSmart #WorkHard #StartUpLife #NoExcuses #BusinessOwner #Leadership #Dedication #Commitment #CoffeeAndDonuts #Motivation #AboveAndBeyond #Inspire #Motivate #Opportunity
