I've noticed A LOT of young adults and aspiring entrepreneurs become obsessed with the concept of "hustling", which is made even more popular by figures like Gary Vee who encourage a nonstop obsession with working. I wanted to openly discuss when I think the idea of "hustling" is taken too far and what to do when you feel like you're comparing yourself to other social media influencers. You DON'T need to get up at 6 AM to work a 12 hour day to make your company or life successful. Do you think the word hustle has become saturated or do you agree with the hustle concept that the media enforces?
