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.

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
