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

The key is finding the positives in change. Don't be mad you have to make changes, be happy you the opportunity to make your situation better.⠀ ⠀ On the podcast this week I have two specific examples of clients who not only embraced change, but made it as beneficial as possible for them.

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
