The Daily Hustle was initially created as an online platform to celebrate the entrepreneurial knowledge-seeker, creating and curating tips, tools, tutorials and inspirations for the big-thinker. The podcast focused specifically on the journey of entrepreneurship, interviewing people at various stages of the entrepreneurial journey.
I asked guests to share their story, how they navigated through the entrepreneurship process – the transition to becoming an entrepreneur, fears and challenges, and ultimately how they reached the point they are at present. However I started to realize that the stories being shared, often spoke more toward the journey of self as my guests embarked on a quest to live a life of meaning and purpose, albeit it through entrepreneurship.
You see, the word ‘hustle’ has become synonymous with entrepreneurship, and entrepreneurship has become the buzz word of our generation. But we can’t all be entrepreneurs and we certainly shouldn’t all be entrepreneurs. Entrepreneurship plays a vital role in modern economic times, and is a source of passion, purpose and freedom for those who embrace it fully. However, we must be careful not to romanticize entrepreneurship to the extent that we vilify the 9 to 5. We must be careful that, in recognizing the struggle of entrepreneurship, and the reverence of the successful entrepreneur, that we do not discount the daily hustle of those who do not desire that path.
You cannot be an entrepreneur without hustle, but not all hustle is about entrepreneurship.
In reconnecting with the core philosophies of occupational science, I observed that hustle, in the true sense of the word, is really about the decisions we all make on a daily basis to DO. We choose to engage in activities and occupations that is inline with either a current or desired future identity. And so The Daily Hustle has evolved to be about much more than just entrepreneurship. Instead we explore the hustle of doing, being and becoming on our quest for growth and self-actualization.
