About the Episode

On this episode of Next Level Agents, I’m joined by Sam Parr, the man behind The Hustle, the daily tech and business email. He calls The Hustle an information company geared towards youngish entrepreneurs, and people who are growth-minded.

 

Sam Parr is the CEO and co-founder of The Hustle, one of America's fastest growing media companies. Each morning they give over 1m users/day the important business news they need to succeed. The company generates 7 figures in revenue each month, and has grown to a team of 30 employees. The company also hosts Hustle Con a popular conference with thousands of attendees. The hustle is a fast-growing, profitable without any venture capital. Sam has also started and sold multiple companies, invests in real estate and startups. 



Sam’s journey in business and the story of The Hustle is one of learning from some of the most legendary names in media like Ted Turner, and creating something that is so relevant and impactful right now. He understands the value of seeing trends before they are blatantly obvious to everyone else, and being willing to do things differently to how everyone else is doing. Add to that a sharp, brilliant and unique communication style, and you have an unstoppable media maven, and an equally unstoppable brand.

 

Building a business of note isn’t easy, and it requires us to constantly learn, develop, and iterate new pathways and approaches. The people who do this well understand that what really makes an impact is courage, mental and emotional toughness. As Sam puts it, business excellence is 20% intelligence and 80% emotional. 



In Today’s Episode, We Talk About;

 

- The backstory of The Hustle and who the publication is geared to. 

- Why Sam started a media company, why Ted Turner inspires him and how Sam honed the voice and tone of The Hustle.
