No, we're not on a new diet for the #SaturdayMorningHustle but instead reminding you (while reminding myself) that we all need to take the advice and guidance we give to others as direction for ourselves. There's nothing like a less-than-happy conversation with a client to make you feel really stupid for expecting discipline and structure from them (of your making or theirs) but not yourself as well. Trust me, I'm speaking from very recent experience. This is called "eating your own dog food" or "taking your own medicine" or "walking it like you talk it" – you get the message, right? Too many people in business and other pursuits fear rules or structure because they don't want to be constrained or held back by a business plan or marketing strategy. Of course, this is misguided. The plan create structure with room to adapt so you can be creative or make different decisions on the fly when adaptation is needed. That's how it's (supposed to be) designed to work best. Everyone needs to be working towards the same goals, via different objectives and tactics while remembering the big picture. Anything "held back" by a good plan probably deserves to be skipped. So, what is one way (or more) you can do more of what you say or eat your own dog food better after this gentle reminder? How will you be better at following the rules you set in order to reach success in a better way? Best of luck! See you next week. It's Saturday, I'm in the office so it must be the Saturday Morning Hustle. #RiseAndGrind #EvenOnTheWeekend #WorkSmart #WorkHard Subscribe to the podcast on #iTunes http://bit.ly/SatMornHustle on Google Play http://bit.ly/SMHGooglePlay on @anchor https://anchor.fm/kyle-golding and streaming on @Spotify http://bit.ly/SaturdayMorningHustle.

#SaturdayMorningHustle Advice: Stop using the term "Failure". Stop embracing the idea of failure as a part of success. It's not! You will have negative events, setbacks, errors, missteps, undesirable outcomes, bad results, screwups and near disasters – but not failure because failure is the final level opposite of success. Failure is when something is so bad it ends the campaign, project, business, etc…. ⠀ ⠀ Take these "less than ideal" outcomes and make the necessary adjustments and corrections to create a better outcome the next time. Do NOT embrace the failure, but fight harder to never be in the predicament again. Focus on turning weaknesses (we all have them) into strengths and creating opportunity from setbacks. ⠀ ⠀ Swipe Right Bonus Idea: You're going to hear more No more than Yes. It's a statistical thing. But, a No is not a failure, it's a minor course correction. Keep focused on success.⠀ ⠀ Subscribe to the #SaturdayMorningHustle 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. ⠀ ⠀ #Success #Opportunity #Advice #SaturdayThoughts #Failure #Hustle #Grind #EvenOnTheWeekend #RiseAndGrind #Business #Entrepreneur #SideHustle #StartUp #WorkSmart #WorkHard #StartUpLife #NoExcuses #BusinessOwner #Leadership #Dedication #Commitment #CoffeeAndDonuts #Motivation #AboveAndBeyond #Inspire #Motivate #Opportunity

#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

Stop, collaborate and listen. The #SaturdayMorningHustle is back with a brand new edition. I’m all about collaborating as the best pathway to success. In 2018 (2019 and beyond) the old rules of business no longer apply. New business models and combinations are creating new opportunities. Virtual businesses, side-hustles and startups are taking advantage of collaboration and non-traditional working arrangements for win-win situations. We’re doing this with all our clients at The Golding Group. Welcome to the future. Find the right partners for all the right reasons and collaborate. Alternatively, walk away from inequitable business relationships and “in the box” thinkers. That’s old news and not where you want to be. Your happiness will be up and your stress down if you choose to collaborate with the right partners for the right reasons. Work smart, work hard, be open to the process and success will follow. #RiseAndGrind #Collaboration #Entrepreneur #WorkSmart then #WorkHard #Business #Success #Truth #EvenOnTheWeekend #StartUpLife #NoExcuses #BusinessOwner #Leadership #Dedication #Commitment #CoffeeAndDonuts #NoShortcuts #Motivation #Career #AboveAndBeyond #Advice #Inspire #Motivate #Opportunity
