#SaturdayMorningHustle Flashback topic from 3 years ago: Focus for Success! Harness the power of focus to create successful opportunities for yourself. Never do something simply because you “can” or because there’s money to be made. Instead, focus on activities you have passion for it. Don’t chase money, because it never works out correctly. Stay in your lane. Stay focused.⠀ ⠀ One of the excuses I often hear for not focusing on a singular or small set of activity is missing opportunities. But not focusing most often takes a business in too many directions at the same time. Focus on your core offerings instead of diluting your brand your message and your communication. Be the best at what you do, not a jack-of-all-trades / master of none. ⠀ ⠀ Good luck! Let me know how I can help you and your business. I'm here to help (and drink coffee). Hit me up on Anchor, Instagram, Twitter or YouTube with questions, comments and feedback. It's Saturday, I'm in the office so it must be the Saturday Morning Hustle. Listen to the podcast every weekend while your competition is still sleeping. https://saturdaymorninghustle.com⠀ iTunes: http://bit.ly/SatMornHustle⠀ Spotify: http://bit.ly/SaturdayMorningHustle⠀ Anchor: https://anchor.fm/satmorninghustle⠀ Google Podcast: https://bit.ly/SMHGooglePod⠀ YouTube: https://bit.ly/SMHvideos⠀ ⠀ Swipe right for 2017 "The word of the day is FOCUS!" #SaturdayMorningHustle advice: Stay in your lane, do that thing you do the way you do it. Too many people look at ways others are making money or having success and want to add that to what they are already doing. This is a terrible idea.⠀ ⠀ The best business is very specifically focused on a core offering. That is what people expect and like about doing business with you. Adding extras for no reason other than you can do it (but you're not the best at it) or just to make "easy" money dilutes your brand, message, customer experience, staff attention, etc…. PLUS you will be competing with those you are copying. The advantage is theirs.”⠀ ⠀ To be successful, stay focused!" #Focus #Strategy #Specialize #Success #Hustle #Grind #EvenOnTheWeekend #WorkSmart then #WorkHard #Entrepreneur

#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.

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.

The concept of community is needed more than ever. As individuals, we need to come together for communication, collaboration and empathy with/for each other. This benefits everyone. There's also the concept of community building as a business model. No selling, more authentic engagement and brand loyalty. All you have to do is provide value first, not expect anything in return and let the community develop organically. This can be people in the same area, who have common interests (sports, music, politics, hobbies) or benefit from collaboration and shared efforts.⠀ ⠀ Not sure how that all works, why you should consider it for yourself (as an individual) or for your business? Don't know how to get started? Concerned about conversion and economic value? Let's talk about it. ⠀ ⠀ It's Saturday, I'm in the office so it must be the #SaturdayMorningHustle.

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.
