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.

#SaturdayMorningHustle Advice: Being Too High Can Make Your Lows Unbearable. It happens to everyone. Wins and losses. You will hear No more than Yes. Business, careers and brands all have highs and lows. Peaks and valleys in the path to success. Balancing the two is key, not letting lows kill what you have built and not letting highs inflate your ego. In fact, over-hyping your wins and creating unrealistic expectations for yourself on the upside can make minor setbacks seem even worse than it really is. Don't gaslight yourself. I'm in the slow period of the year for my business, coming right after our busy season. ⠀ ⠀ This advice is as much for me as it is for you. It's Saturday, I'm in the office #Hustling and #Grinding while the competition sleeps in.
