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

The #SaturdayMorningHustle is for everyone, not just Entrepreneurs. Anyone can use this advice in your career pursuits. Success always comes to those who work the hardest, make the most of every situation and refuse to lose. It doesn't matter how many times you get knocked down, but how many times you get back up. That also applies when working for other people. ⠀ ⠀ Don't let any single setback, big or small, deter you form your career vision. Don't let the day-to-day drag down your long-term goals. Think like an entrepreneur in your career. You will have a job of some sort for the majority of your life, so don't let any day, week, month or year (a small % of your overall life) stop you. Keep #Hustling and #Grinding #EvenOnTheWeekend to control your own success. Good luck, see you next week! ⠀ ⠀ #Career #Advice #Business #Entrepreneur #Vison #Hustle #Grind #Saturday #Sunday #LikeABoss #Opportunity #ThinkLikeTheOwner #SaturdayThoughts #SaturdayMotivation #Success #RiseAndGrind

I'm typically motivated on the #SaturdayMorningHustle but today I'm really fired up after a very fulfilling experience this week I want to share with you. Twice a year I teach a 2 hour class on Marketing / Advertising for the local Career Tech. My class is one in a series on small business education like accounting, legal, social media, etc. ⠀ ⠀ My fav. part is meeting entrepreneurs, small business owners and people considering taking the leap into the world of business. Helping these people understand how to best succeed but also what to avoid (so they don't blow all their money) is very rewarding. ⠀ ⠀ I also find great value in putting my expertise to the test. Like the #AlbertEinstein Quote "If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough" teaching a beginner class to a range of people forces me to simplify complex ideas and communicate in a very direct and effective way. ⠀ ⠀ Ultimately, playing a small part in developing our small business community and taking the challenge of explaining in a simple fashion both add up to a very fulfilling experience. If you get a chance to support others while expanding your ideas about business or career success – I suggest you do it. It's good for the community and it will motivate you as well. A true Win-Win. See you next week! ⠀ ⠀ #RiseAndGrind #Hustle #Work #EvenOnTheWeekend #Entrepreneur #Advice #Motivation #Strategy #Goals #Objectives #Tactics #Measurement #Education #Community #WorkSmart Then #WorkHard #Business #SmallBusiness #SelfBrand #SocialMedia #SideHustle #SecondCareer #Career #Hobby #GiveBack #WinWin #OKCSmallBusiness

I want to thank everyone who listens to the #SaturdayMorningHustle podcast. I'm especially grateful for getting to hear your stories of motivation, hustle and grind. But, not everyone can #RiseAndGrind on Saturday mornings and that’s OK. In fact, if you're still in bed right now, that's OK too (if you have a plan to put the work in). ⠀ ⠀ The key to success is focusing on what you can control – your effort. It doesn’t matter if it’s this morning, tomorrow or sometime next week. If you want more, you gotta work more – when and how you can. You don't have to do it the way I do it, but you do have to find ways to work smart and work hard. ⠀ ⠀ Let me know when and how you put in the extra hustle. Let’s get social on social media. It’s a two-way conversation. Maybe your story will motivate and connect with others as well. ⠀ ⠀ Until next week, good luck and stay safe out there. ⠀ ⠀ listen the the 5 minute podcast on @Spotify http://bit.ly/SaturdayMorningHustle on #iTunes http://bit.ly/SatMornHustle on Google Play http://bit.ly/SMHGooglePlay or my IGTV (InstaStory).⠀ https://saturdaymorninghustle.com/⠀ ⠀ More places to find the podcast:⠀⠀ • Breaker: https://www.breaker.audio/number-saturdaymorninghustle ⠀ • CastBox_FM: https://castbox.fm/x/Jz3U ⠀ • OvercastFM: https://overcast.fm/itunes1268398101/saturdaymorninghustle ⠀ • Pocketcasts: http://pca.st/s8Zf ⠀ • RadioPublic: https://radiopublic.com/saturdaymorninghustle-6nPAwN ⠀ • Podbean: http://bit.ly/SMHpodbean ⠀ ⠀ #Hustle #Work #EvenOnTheWeekend #Coffee #Entrepreneur #Advice #Motivation #Strategy #Goals #Objectives #Tactics #Measurement #WorkSmart Then #WorkHard #Business #StartUp #SelfBrand #SocialMedia #SideHustle

Today on the #SaturdayMorningHustle, I run through the levels of entrepreneurship: Side-Hustle, Project Based, Outside Interest, Second Career and Hobby. ⠀ ⠀ Each has its own set of rules, expectations and return on investment (or lack of). If your full time / part time J-O-B isn't enough for you, here are a few options. To get the full rundown, listen the podcast on @Spotify http://bit.ly/SaturdayMorningHustle on #iTunes http://bit.ly/SatMornHustle on Google Play http://bit.ly/SMHGooglePlay or my IGTV (InstaStory).⠀ ⠀ Let's clear up some confusion about the differences and similarities between having a career working for someone else or being an Entrepreneur and the levels of transition in-between. There are many options to "being your own boss" with levels of risk, freedom and fringe benefits. ⠀ ⠀ Listen to the 5-minute podcast for detailed information. Let's discuss.⠀ ⠀ More places to find the podcast:⠀ • Breaker: https://www.breaker.audio/number-saturdaymorninghustle ⠀ • CastBox_FM: https://castbox.fm/x/Jz3U ⠀ • OvercastFM: https://overcast.fm/itunes1268398101/saturdaymorninghustle ⠀ • Pocketcasts: http://pca.st/s8Zf ⠀ • RadioPublic: https://radiopublic.com/saturdaymorninghustle-6nPAwN ⠀ • Podbean: http://bit.ly/SMHpodbean ⠀ ⠀ #RiseAndGrind #Hustle #Work #EvenOnTheWeekend #Coffee #Entrepreneur #Advice #Motivation #Strategy #Goals #Objectives #Tactics #Measurement #WorkSmart Then #WorkHard #Business #SelfBrand #SocialMedia #SideHustle #SecondCareer #Career #Hobby

Welcome to the first #SaturdayMorningHustle for 2019. With the new year comes a lot of New Year Resolutions and other standards people try to hold themselves to. If "business" is one of your topics for 2019 you need to know a couple of simple but powerful ideas about how to best achieve success in 2019 – focus on 2 key things: How much effort you put into your pursuits AND controlling what you can, not everything. If you can do this, you will find real empowerment as an entrepreneur, self-brand or rock star employee climbing the corporate ladder. ⠀ ⠀ Hustle, grind and put extra effort in to outwork "the other guy/girl" is something you have control over. Every great champion credits the training that got them to the top levels. Do the same for your career. ⠀ ⠀ If you cannot focus on what you control, you will burn out from letting outside factors effect your work flow, attitude and outlook. Do what you can, when you can and understand all other factors are outside your control (and often your competitors control as well). Don't worry about weather, the stock market or who is President. Stay connected to who you are, what you're trying to accomplish and why. ⠀ ⠀ Best of luck in 2019. Check out the podcast for a full 5 minute rant. Happy New Year! #iTunes http://bit.ly/SatMornHustle @Spotify http://bit.ly/SaturdayMorningHustle #GooglePlay http://bit.ly/SMHGooglePlay and @Anchor.FM https://anchor.fm/kyle-golding ⠀ ⠀ #RiseAndGrind #Hustle #Work #EvenOnTheWeekend #Coffee #Hustle #StopDoingNothing #NYE #Advice #Motivation #Strategy #Goals #Objectives #Tactics #Measurement #WorkSmart Then #WorkHard #NoExcuses #EarnIt #Entrepreneur #Business #SelfBrand #SocialMedia
