    For the past couple of years it seems like one of the biggest buzzwords in business and entrepreneurship is “Hustle”. And most of the messaging around hustle is about “go, go, go!” - harder, faster, stronger, more. But what if that’s not the whole story? What if hustle is also about slowing down, pausing, and being still? And what if it is in that stillness that the best hustlers are made?

    In this episode, we discuss this concept with Kyra Maya Philips, co-author of the book The Misfit Economy -- which was named by The Telegraph, Tech Republic, and The Huffington Post as one of the Top New Books to read in 2015. We also bring in lessons from the life of convict-turned-entrepreneur, Duane Jackson. We also hear some wise words from writer and traveler, Pico Iyer. Lastly, we receive some widsom from author and activist, Lynne Twist.

    When it is all said and done, you may be left with a new idea of how to “Do The Hustle”. (Just in time for the 40th anniversary of it reaching #1 on the Billboard 100.)
