#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.

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.

#SaturdayMorningHustle advice for handling interruption to your schedule, system or process (your comfort zone). After a week of travel (for business) I'm way outside my normal routine. Even though I'm not as structured as many people, I do like having an idea of what needs to be done, in what order, how long something should take, etc…. ⠀ ⠀ But the key to being successful is the ability to handle situations that take you out of your comfort zone. That's often where the best work occurs. Don't be afraid of getting out of your routine, embrace it. Make a potential weakness a strength.⠀ ⠀ My question for you is, are you super structured and organized or are you fluid and flexible in your process? Let's talk about it. How do you prefer to work, and how do you get back on track if you are pushed out of that routine (or lack of a routine)?⠀ ⠀ 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.⠀ ⠀ Be like @vickker and get your Saturday Morning Hustle t-shirt.

#SaturdayMorningHustle Finding positives in change. Everything changes. Sometimes a little (minor adjustments) and sometimes a lot (like your fav. team trading your fav. player) but we have to keep #Hustling and #Grinding if we want to be successful. 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. Let's talk about how change can be made part of your success plan. Make a comment below.

It's a #SaturdayMorningHustle idea so simple but so powerful and true. People appreciate positive reinforcement. Who doesn't love a compliment, big or small? Think about how you feel when some tells you something nice. Small things count too. Like on your social media post, positive comments, and people going out of their way to make a specific comment about how they like what you're doing. So if all this is true, why don't we all do more of it? Too often we use social media, phone apps, digital platforms and networking events to be negative, complain and not lift others up because we don't want the competition. For me, when I get positive comments online and #IRL about the Saturday Morning Hustle podcast, my business podcast (The Golding Group #NeoMarketing Podcast) and other activity it really lifts my spirits. The smallest act of kindness can do great things for people, so LET'S ALL DO MORE OF THAT! It's Saturday, I'm in the office so it must be the #SaturdayMorningHustle #RiseAndGrind #EvenOnTheWeekend #WorkSmart #WorkHard #SaturdayThoughts #SaturdayMotivation #SaturdayMorning #Entrepreneur #SocialMedia #IRL #Success #StartUpLife #BusinessOwner #Leadership #Dedication #Commitment #CoffeeAndDonuts #Motivation #Career #Advice #Inspiration #Motivation #Opportunity The Saturday Morning Hustle t-shirts are now available for everyone at http://bit.ly/SMHshirt so get yours today.

Roller coasters are supposed to be fun because you get to climb to the top of the track, look around at everything and then all-of-a-sudden whoosh your diving downward at top speed. Twist, turns and even loops. That's great fun at an amusement park but not when running a business. A metaphorical roller coast ride as an entrepreneur is having an epic high like a new client, big check or other great success but then what goes up must also come back down. Often in business, these highs and lows happen in the same week. That's the roller coaster. ⠀ ⠀ So, what do you do? Strive for a more predictable middle. Avoid making decisions when you're at the very top or very bottom. Understand that neither the euphoria of wins or the dread of a loss (taking an "L") is permanent. Predictability is key to a successful business, so go after those highs to balance the lows (it happens to everyone, not just you) but work towards consistency. The roller coaster is a lot of fun, but it's exhausting at the same time. If you want a long, healthy career try staying off the roller coaster or at least try to make it a short ride. ⠀ ⠀ Don't think you're bulletproof when you are on top and don't quit just because you came crashing back down. Balance yourself and understand we all take this ride from time to time. ⠀ ⠀ Good luck! See you next week. May the Forth (5/4/19) be with you. It's Saturday, I'm in the office so it must be the #SaturdayMorningHustle.⠀ ⠀ Listen the full 5 min. #SaturdayMorningHustle Podcast on @Spotify http://bit.ly/SaturdayMorningHustle or #iTunes http://bit.ly/SatMornHustle or @Anchor.fm https://anchor.fm/kyle-golding or Google Play http://bit.ly/SMHGooglePlay⠀ ⠀ #RiseAndGrind #EvenOnTheWeekend #WorkSmart #WorkHard #Entrepreneur #Business #Career #Advice #Success #Coffee #Caffeine #Dedication #Consistency #Predictability #SaturdayThoughts #SaturdayMotivation
