I hustle. The Cambridge Dictionary defines “Hustle” (verb) as to “act quickly and with energy.” (My #2 & #3 Strength Finders are Activator & Achiever) I don’t sell products or programs, I sell energy. I sell my Passion. I only take on projects that make me explode with ideas and energy, that wreck my heart and break my soul. I advocate for consumers who ultimately experience the end products or experiences of my events or designs I encourage and invite others to join me.
