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.

It's a #SaturdayMorningHustle riddle for #Entrepreneurs – "How can saying NO as often as possible create the opportunity to say YES as often as possible? 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. I'm not going to give it away here.

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

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
