A step-by-step guide to breaking out of the nine-to-five and finding more imaginative ways of living and working.




by Neil Patel


We all know that success doesn't happen overnight, but we also won't achieve our dreams by blindly moving forward, hoping that they will become a reality. While encouraging words may spark motivation, we have to implement a system of new habits and intentional actions to get to the finish line.

Authors Neil Patel, Patrick Vlaskovits, and Jonas Koffler all had hopes for success that required them to think beyond what modern society deemed necessary. In Hustle: The Power to Charge Your Life with Money, Meaning, and Momentum, Patel, Vlaskovits, and Koffler compile their hard-won experiences and turn the idea of success on its head.

Hard work, legitimate knowledge, and repeated action are important, but we also need to embrace our quirks, oddities, and crazy ideas. Doing so creates a win-win-win environment – we find success while getting creative, having fun, and doing the unexpected.
