That's right, I'm not passing out #SaturdayMorningHustle advice this week – I'm asking you questions, so I can (hopefully) answer them for you. What are you working on, what can I do to help you, how can other people help you? What questions do you have? Do you need suggestions for a project, advice for a startup or assistance with your career? Ask! Not only will I reply, maybe others will as well. Hit me up on Twitter: (@)KyleGolding or here on Instagram with questions, comments or whatever you need to solve a problem, motivate you to be your best or simply to make your day. That's the point of this podcast and all my social media post. ⠀ ⠀ It's Saturday, I'm in the office so it must be the #SaturdayMorningHustle. Listen to the podcast every weekend while your competition is still sleeping. ⠀ Don't forget, the Saturday Morning Hustle t-shirts are now available for everyone at http://bit.ly/SMHshirt so get yours today.

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 most practical advice I can give you on the #SaturdayMorningHustle is this: Start every idea, project or promotion the same way you build a business. Begin with the best idea possible. Don't be an "us too" offering but really find something new or a new way to do it. Make sure that idea solves a problem for people. That makes it valuable, something people will pay you for. Set your idea apart, differentiate what it is, how it works, how you deliver it, etc…. ⠀ ⠀ Do all of this with your audience wants and needs in mind, not your wants (or ego). If you do that, you will have something people are willing to pay for, delivered the way they want. Last but not least, make sure it's profitable. That profit will pay back startup cost and keep you going when things are not working perfectly. If everything goes well, profit will make it possible to expand. Measure, adjust, do it all again – just better. #GoodLuck #Hustle #Grind #WorkSmart and #WorkHard #Entrepreneur #Leadership #EvenOnTheWeekends #Conversion #Measurement #Marketing #Advertising #PR #PublicRelations #Promotions #Profit #Win #Motivation #Business #SelfBrand #Career #Process #Inspire #Motivate #OKCSmallBusiness
