#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. It's Saturday, I'm in the office so it must be the Saturday Morning Hustle. https://saturdaymorninghustle.com⠀ ⠀ Listen to the #SaturdayMorningHustle podcast while your competition is still sleeping.

#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.

Success is def. a journey and not a destination, but not an A – B trip. Why? I will tell you today on the #SaturdayMorningHustle podcast. You can't get too set on an idea of success, because "the real world" will make changes to that picture. Don't believe me, just ask 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).⠀ ⠀ My own path to success has taken many, many unexpected turns over the last 35 years. 15 years in the music business, 20 years in marketing as a graphic designer, creative director, C-suite and business owner multiple times in multiple structures. Some successful, some not but all merge to my current place in my success journey.⠀ ⠀ Not sure what I mean? Let's talk about it. ⠀ It's Saturday, I'm in the office so it must be the #SaturdayMorningHustle.

It's a very meta #SaturdayMorningHustle sharing advice I was given about the Saturday Morning Hustle brand, future and achieving possibilities. Today I'm sharing input from a trusted friend and advisor who "called me out" in the most constructive way possible in regard to me being serious about the SMH podcast, social media, website, products and overall brand without losing what it is that makes the concept behind the hustle so important. By doing a better job on the business side, my #SideHustle just might become more important and impactful to more people.⠀ ⠀ I will translate the advice my friend gave me into actionable steps you can take for your career, self-brand, artistic or entrepreneurial pursuits. LISTEN TO THE PODCAST FOR A FULL 24 MINUTES ON THIS ADVICE:⠀ ⠀ 1. A Self-Brand should be treated as a business⠀ 2. You might be too close to see the big picture⠀ 3. Collaboration and outside input is essential⠀ 4. No excuses (duh!)⠀ and I add a few more ideas of my own to round out this discussion.⠀ 5. Challenges are always good⠀ 6. Strive for more, but be yourself⠀ 7. Leave your comfort zone, but not your ethical limits⠀ 8. There is no perfect time to start⠀ 9. Things change, be patient while being assertive ⠀ ⠀ Listen, Stream or Subscribe to the #SaturdayMorningHustle podcast⠀ iTunes: http://bit.ly/SatMornHustle⠀ Spotify: http://bit.ly/SaturdayMorningHustle⠀ Anchor: https://anchor.fm/satmorninghustle⠀ Google Podcast: https://bit.ly/SMHGooglePod⠀ Google Play Music: http://bit.ly/SMHGooglePlay⠀ Podchaser: https://bit.ly/SMHPodChaser⠀ Podbean: http://bit.ly/SMHpodbean⠀ YouTube: https://bit.ly/SMHvideos⠀ https://saturdaymorninghustle.com⠀ ⠀ Hit me up with questions, comments and feedback.

Check out the #Podcast today for the full #Flashback episode from 1 year ago. True #SaturdayMorningHustle success comes from a positive attitude and willingness to give more than you take. We all #Hustle and #Grind every single day, #EvenOnTheWeekend too, for the opportunity to build something for ourselves and our family. That’s what it takes to be an #Entrepreneur, own your own business or propel your career as the best employee where you work.⠀ ⠀ BUT that does not mean every minute of every day is spend getting just ourselves ahead. Often you need to do things that are not for you, but others. We (as a whole) don't do enough of this. At least 51/49 for them (the @GaryVee rule). Sometimes 100% for others. Don't expect a return, outside of a warm feeling in your gut and a positive voice in the back of your head.⠀ ⠀ Why? It opens opportunities in ways you can never plan. Meet new people, hear new ideas or be inspired by others you would have never otherwise met. We all need that. The ROI is always positive, but it can't be measured in raw numbers.⠀ ⠀ Trust me, this attitude has served me well.⠀ ⠀ The more I give, the more I get. I’m having my best year (2019) ever, and I hope you are too. Get busy, hustle, grind and do what it takes. That includes giving more than you expect in return.⠀ ⠀ Listen to the Saturday Morning Hustle podcast every weekend while your competition is still sleeping.

Good luck! ⠀ #Success #Sharing #Collaboration #Give #RiseAndGrind #Business #Creativity #Entrepreneur #StartUp #SaturdayThoughts #SaturdayMotivation #Career #FirstOneIn #LastOneOut #EvenOnTheWeekend #SaturdayMorning #SocialMedia #BusinessOwner #Leadership #Dedication #Commitment #CoffeeAndDonuts #Advice

Say Yes, Collaborate, Take the First Step, Find Success. Seems simple, but it's hard to actually execute on – how do you create your own #SaturdayMorningHustle success? Not necessarily a podcast (or maybe it is) but doing something that brings you great joy, opportunity and potential success. ⠀ ⠀ This was a common theme of many conversations I had this last week, so today I'm sharing the ideas, tactics and steps to success (as you define it) via something new or different. Bonus: Check out the @definingmomentspodcast https://www.definingmomentspod.com/ from my pals Hoang and Margy Lam.⠀ ⠀ Listen to the #SaturdayMorningHustle podcast every weekend while your competition is still sleeping.
