It's a very meta #SaturdayMorningHustle sharing advice I was given about the Saturday Morning Hustle brand, future and achieving possibilities. Today I'm sharing input from a trusted friend and advisor who "called me out" in the most constructive way possible in regard to me being serious about the SMH podcast, social media, website, products and overall brand without losing what it is that makes the concept behind the hustle so important. By doing a better job on the business side, my #SideHustle just might become more important and impactful to more people.⠀ ⠀ I will translate the advice my friend gave me into actionable steps you can take for your career, self-brand, artistic or entrepreneurial pursuits. LISTEN TO THE PODCAST FOR A FULL 24 MINUTES ON THIS ADVICE:⠀ ⠀ 1. A Self-Brand should be treated as a business⠀ 2. You might be too close to see the big picture⠀ 3. Collaboration and outside input is essential⠀ 4. No excuses (duh!)⠀ and I add a few more ideas of my own to round out this discussion.⠀ 5. Challenges are always good⠀ 6. Strive for more, but be yourself⠀ 7. Leave your comfort zone, but not your ethical limits⠀ 8. There is no perfect time to start⠀ 9. Things change, be patient while being assertive ⠀ ⠀ Listen, Stream or Subscribe to the #SaturdayMorningHustle podcast⠀ iTunes: http://bit.ly/SatMornHustle⠀ Spotify: http://bit.ly/SaturdayMorningHustle⠀ Anchor: https://anchor.fm/satmorninghustle⠀ Google Podcast: https://bit.ly/SMHGooglePod⠀ Google Play Music: http://bit.ly/SMHGooglePlay⠀ Podchaser: https://bit.ly/SMHPodChaser⠀ Podbean: http://bit.ly/SMHpodbean⠀ YouTube: https://bit.ly/SMHvideos⠀ https://saturdaymorninghustle.com⠀ ⠀ Hit me up with questions, comments and feedback.

Happy 4th of July! Slide Right for the #SaturdayMorningHustle Flashback (2017) Want to be an #Entrepreneur or run a successful business? Avoid SM "experts" using inspirational quotes + stock photos of exotic cars and vacations. Instead, pay attention to people willing to share practical advice on how to build a business on a day-to-day basis. Don't let them sell you a "system" or "one weird trick" to success. Watch people who #Hustle #Grind and share #Advice along the way. Other people's success doesn't stop you from having success. Good luck to everyone willing to work hard for your dreams. Once you make some $$, don't blow it on superficial stuff.⠀ ⠀ Check out the Saturday Morning Hustle podcast for a full 15 minutes on these subjects and more advice for building a brand THE RIGHT WAY in 2020/21.⠀ ⠀ #Entrepreneur #WorkSmart then #WorkHard #Business #Success #Truth #EvenOnTheWeekend #CoffeeAndDonuts #Grind #Hustle #StartUpLife #NoExcuses #BusinessOwner #Leadership #Dedication #Commitment

Are You Social Media Connected or Burned Out? An ironic #SaturdayMorningHustle today. Let's talk about how much content we all (you and I) are taking in every day via the internet, email, smartphone apps, social media, video, podcast, blogs and "traditional" mediums like print, TV (network or cable) and radio. How much is enough to make you feel connected and how much is too much – making you want to turn it all off and go back to bed? Are you happy with your daily intake or burned out? ⠀ ⠀ To be honest, I'm burned out. The second half of the conversation is about your own mental health. How do YOU (yes you!) manage all these options? What techniques, attitudes or even technology do you use to make sure you can be social online without feeling overwhelmed? Do you have set rules in your home or office, physically move or even hide devices, etc….? ⠀ ⠀ Let's talk about it. Comment below (the irony is not lost on this) and tell me how you feel and how you manage it all. ⠀ ⠀ For more detailed thoughts about what works for me and why it's important, check out todays podcast on #iTunes http://bit.ly/SatMornHustle on Google Play http://bit.ly/SMHGooglePlay on @anchor.fm 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 #SaturdayMorningHustle. ⠀ #RiseAndGrind #EvenOnTheWeekend #WorkSmart #WorkHard. ⠀ ⠀ The Saturday Morning Hustle t-shirts are now available for everyone at http://bit.ly/SMHshirt so get yours today. Prove your hustle and grind. https://saturdaymorninghustle.com/⠀ ⠀ #SaturdayThoughts #SaturdayMotivation #SaturdayMorning #Entrepreneur #SocialMedia #IRL #Success #StartUpLife #BusinessOwner #Leadership #Dedication #Commitment #CoffeeAndDonuts #Motivation #Career #Advice #Inspiration #Motivation #Opportunity

It's such a simple #SaturdayMorningHustle concept: #SocialMedia – Platforms for people to connect with each other from anywhere at anytime without limitations. It's like everyone is invited to the party, class, meeting, conference, exhibition, etc. no matter where you are or how you get there. BUT the platforms quickly declined into the home of trolls, spammers and scam artist. There is hope!⠀ ⠀ I'm seeing a shift in how people understand social media, the internet, mobile technology, etc. and it's for the good. Entrepreneurs, marketers and business decision-makers are pulling back from selling and doing a better job of communicating by being social. Like the wise man once said, start with your WHY long before you get to the how, what and for how much.⠀ ⠀ Don't use SM to prospect wide and close what you can, but instead tell your story and connect with people as people. What you want them to do (buy something, go somewhere, support a cause, vote, riot, etc.) will naturally occur once you take the opportunity to create relationships. THAT is what social media is supposed to do. ⠀ ⠀ Good luck, see you next week!⠀ ⠀ Shoutout to @christieowenart for being positive, doing things in the right way and sharing her motivation with others. Way to go! ⠀ ⠀ It's Saturday, I'm in the office so it must be the #SaturdayMorningHustle. Listen the full 5 min.

#SaturdayMorningHustle – It's the simplest of all social norms: Don't steal other people's things. This includes creative ideas and content. Not just word-for-word copy and paste style plagiarism but lifting ideas, styles and execution is just wrong. No one appreciates this. ⠀ ⠀ The internet and social media have presented all of us an opportunity to connect with others and communicate in new and interesting ways. The only rule is to be yourself. Don't build your brand on someone else's concept. Authentic audience development is the only way to create something valuable and sustainable. Shortcuts and unethical behavior is the exact opposite. ⠀ ⠀ You don't have to be the most interesting person on the planet to have an audience, you just have to be your authentic self. Good luck! ⠀ ⠀ #KeepItReal #Authentic #Creative #Communication #Audience #SelfBrand #Brand #Message #SocialMedia #RiseAndGrind #Work #EvenOnTheWeekend #Entrepreneur #Advice #Motivation #Community #WorkSmart Then #WorkHard #Business #SmallBusiness #StartUp #SideHustle #WinWin
