September 14, 2016 (PRLEAP.COM) Entertainment News
New Book by Neil Patel named Top Entrepreneur Under the Age of 30 by President Obama, Patrick Vlaskovits the New York Times bestselling author of The Lean Entrepreneur, and Jonas Koffler advisor to recognized thought leaders, TED speakers, and creative artists.

In a much anticipated book that bucks the system with a new path to success and fulfillment, HUSTLE: The Power to Charge Your Life with Money, Meaning, and Momentum, provides today's generation with the battle cry they've been calling for so they can take charge of their destinies, beat the odds, and create opportunity to pursue dreams on their own terms.

"In sports, hustle is the difference between a good player and a star. According to the authors of HUSTLE, the same can be true in business. Tilt the game of life in your favor with this counter-intuitive new book." -Daniel H. Pink, bestselling author of To Sell is Human and Drive

Our guides are the author team of Neil Patel, Patrick Vlaskovits, and Jonas Koffler, three unconventional entrepreneurs whose experiences include immigrant families, rags to riches rises, crushing health and financial setbacks, as well as remarkable success, including founding multimillion dollar ventures and developing innovative, award-winning projects. What they share in common is a lifelong dedication to building unapologetically fulfilling and successful lives around the three key pillars of this book:

Meaning (the why of our work), Money (the earnings we make to build our confidence), and Momentum (relentless energy and a 'get things done' attitude). When all three are in better balance, they form the foundation for a winning strategy that anyone can apply for big breakthroughs, maximum returns, and sustained personal growth.

The authors expose the counterintuitive limitations of loyalty, leaning in, and grit. Instead, they go against the grain of established wisdom and teach you to:

  • Betray Yourself to Stay True to Yourself: Develop your full creative potential.
  • Use the 10-Minute Rule: Activate immediate focus and productivity and expand your talents while avoiding the narrow, paralyzing trap of the 10,000 hours rule.
  • Create a Personal Opportunity Portfolio (POP): Build assets that replace your resume, increase your credibility, attract people, and put you in the role of opportunity regulator.
  • Master the Science of Luck: Capitalize on the four types of luck and never strike out.
  • Choose Your Own Adventure: Pursue four powerful career paths to own your future.

  • But whatever you do, be sure to avoid at all costs what the authors call "the Mediocrity of Meh." Not sure how to do so? The authors share their Three Unseen Laws of Hustle:

  • Hustle in Your Heart: Do something that moves you. This imbues you with energy, enthusiasm, and excitement. Don't worry about so-called passion, just set the wheels of possibility in motion.
  • Hustle in Your Head: Keep your head up and your eyes open. Embrace risk and look for hidden opportunity and ways to manufacture luck. A little luck goes a long way.
  • Hustle in Your Habits: Seal the deal and make it real. Turn an opportunity into a value exchange. Concrete transactions generate growth, upside optionality, and proof.

  • The American Dream isn't gone. But the way to achieve it has drastically changed. If we give ourselves permission to dream and do-or in other words hustle-we will reap the rewards we deserve. HUSTLE is the much-needed blueprint for empowering a restless generation who crave more freedom, mobility, and happiness. More than a business mantra; HUSTLE is a transformative guide to discovering your talents, finding what you love to do-and, most importantly, creating more success and meaningful possibilities for an enriching life.
