The Daily Hustle with Tasneem Abrahams

Business & Economics Podcasts

The Daily Hustle Podcast celebrates the everyday hustle of everyday people. Rooted in the belief that everybody’s story matters and that success is not defined by the accolades behind your name, but by living a life of purpose. The Daily Hustle is about the journey of DOING, BEING and BECOMING. 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.
