#SaturdayMorningHustle The Accidental Entrepreneur – If I can do it, you can do it. Can you believe I have owned or operated my own business (of some sort) for over 30 years now? I didn't even know the word Entrepreneur when I started. Now, I'm a full-time #Entrepreneur helping others do the same. It's not for everyone, but everyone can benefit from adding an entrepreneurial mindset. ⠀ ⠀ @TheGoldingGroup is the latest in a long line of business ventures I have been involved in since my first when I was just 15 years old. To hear the full story, from the music business to marketing to business development, listen then make a comment with your own story.⠀ ⠀ Saturday Morning Hustle Flashback – I posted a social media video 3 years ago (swipe right) fully explained along with what makes an entrepreneur, why new businesses are important and what this means for non-entrepreneurs. Today, I'm expanding on that idea and going WAY deeper into the process, the unexpected events and what it all means. ⠀ ⠀ Hit me up on Anchor, Instagram, Twitter or here on YouTube with questions, comments and feedback. It's Saturday, I'm in the office so it must be the Saturday Morning Hustle. https://saturdaymorninghustle.com⠀ ⠀ Listen to the #SaturdayMorningHustle podcast while your competition is still sleeping.

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.

It’s a simple idea, but so many won’t follow through. The #SaturdayMorningHustle #s break it down for you: ⠀ #RiseAndGrind ⠀ #EarnIt ⠀ #WorkSmart then #WorkHard⠀ #EvenOnTheWeekend ⠀ ⠀ If you’re willing to get up early or stay up late (or both), make (and follow) a plan, put in max effort then (here’s where you make-or-break) look for advice, mentorship and constructive criticism then you can and will excel. If not, you have no one to blame but yourself.⠀ ⠀ Listen to the podcast every weekend while your competition is still sleeping.

Something you hear me say often on the #SaturdayMorningHustle is #WorkSmart then #WorkHard to maximize efficiency and effectiveness. It's not enough to just #Hustle and #Grind you need to be strategic in your approach to what you are working hard on, in what order and (here's the pièce de résistance for today) what must be done during "regular" business hours and what needs to wait for nights and weekends. Focus your efforts by organizing not only by importance, timeliness or even "hardest/least desirable task first" but also by working conditions like interruptions, collaboration partners, client demands and other outside influences you can't control.⠀ ⠀ Check out the podcast today for 6 minutes on how to work smart before you work hard and benefits that come from being strategic with your efforts.⠀ ⠀ Stream on @Spotify bit.ly/SaturdayMorningHustle or listen/subscribe on #iTunes bit.ly/SatMornHustle on #GooglePlay bit.ly/SMHGooglePlay & on @Anchor https://anchor.fm/satmorninghustle⠀ ⠀ It's Saturday, I'm in the office so it must be the #SaturdayMorningHustle.

Welcome to the end of the year and a decade. But we're ending this year the same way we started it – #RiseAndGrind #SaturdayMorningHustle outworking the competition while they sleep in. That's the point of the SMH social media post and podcast, to reaffirm that idea: You are in control of your life! ⠀ ⠀ #Hustle #Grind and #Effort are the keys to success. Being a boss isn't just about being in charge or making the most money. More important than that is control of your career, your life, your future. That comes from effort. ⠀ ⠀ First one in, last one out, Lead by example. Don't just walk the walk but talk the talk. Earn it all with hard work, determination and being smart with your time and effort. Never forget where you come from and who helped you along the way. Now, let's get to work!⠀ ⠀ You definitely want to listen to the podcast today. Streaming on @Spotify bit.ly/SaturdayMorningHustle or subscribe on #iTunes bit.ly/SatMornHustle on #GooglePlay bit.ly/SMHGooglePlay & on @Anchor https://anchor.fm/satmorninghustle⠀ ⠀ 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.
