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

#SaturdayMorningHustle post #TEDxOklahomaCity with recharged batteries. The best thing you can do for yourself is to occasionally stop, interrupt your routine and challenge yourself to listen with an open mind to people who might agree or disagree with our point of view. https://www.tedxoklahomacity.com/ ⠀ ⠀ Shoutout to everyone who tells me #IRL that you check out the #SMH each week. This is a sign of your massive intellect and will guarantee your future success. In all seriousness, I appreciate everyone who makes these post part of your weekend.⠀ ⠀ Great speakers, great people in the room, connecting with people you only know online & meeting new people all make for a great event. Conversations & collaborations are the keys to success! ⠀ ⠀ So, how have you challenged yourself recently? How are you collaborating in your community? What changes can you make for the better? What small steps can you take to make things better for other people? Think about it, then do something. ⠀ ⠀ #SaturdayThoughts #SaturdayMotivation #Success #Advice #Business #Entrepreneur #Vison #Hustle #Grind #Saturday & #Sunday #EvenOnTheWeekend #LikeABoss #Community #Opportunity #RiseAndGrind #Startup #StartupLife #Goals #TEDx #OklahomaCity #OKC #Collaboration #Conversation #Challenge #ThinkDifferent

The #SaturdayMorningHustle didn't start as a podcast, but a series of social media posts about the #Hustle and #Grind of owning your own business. These posts connect with entrepreneurs, business owners and everyone willing to work hard for what they wanted to achieve because I'm actually in the office every Saturday putting in extra work. One group that really connects with this idea are fitness professionals. No other lifestyle is more connected to "working hard every day to see results" more than the gym crowd. The irony is I am not in shape like these fitness coaches and trainers. But, we do have a similar mindset, work ethic and need to motivate others to achieve their goals. My aim is to help business people of all types, which includes fitness businesses as well. If you have a question or need advice for your startup, small business or self-brand (fitness, health or other) please feel free to connect with me on social media. That's what I'm here for. #Motivation #Inspiration #Fitness #Health #LiveWell #EvenOnTheWeekend #Entrepreneur #SelfBrand #Business #SmallBusiness #SmallBusinessOKC #Gym #Trainer #Coach

#SaturdayMorningHustle – The great thing about the pursuit of success is everyone gets to define what success means to them. 1 million $$, 100 million $$, work/life balance, serving others, etc…..? But don't stop there! What are you going to do with that success once you have achieved it? Let's talk about it. I have a few ideas and an example of someone doing it right. Check out the full 5-minute podcast on iTunes: http://bit.ly/SMHustle ….⠀ #Humble #Motivated #Inspired #Hustle #Grind #NeverGiveUp #Business #Success #Advice #Entrepreneur #Compete to #Win #GiveBack #HandUp #Strength #Advantage #WorkSmart then #WorkHard #LongGame #Vision #Successful #PathToSuccess #MakeTheImpossiblePossible #Next #Work #Hard #Smart #Blessed #OKC
