Calling All Hustlers

hus·tler

noun
an aggressively enterprising person; a go-getter

Hustlers don’t wait for life to deliver, they go out and get what’s theirs. They chase fortune not for fortune’s sake, but for the satisfaction it gives them to know that they’ve forged the path themselves instead of waiting for someone to do it for them. Hustlers create the life that they want from scratch, built with the salvaged pieces that others have left behind. Hustlers fail early and often. Hustlers don’t waste even a moment wishing something was different, they act.

Traditional employment conditions us to be dependent. When you work for other people, they take care of you. They also control what you do, how you do it, and what you’re worth.

Working for myself fundamentally changed my life.

I’m not saying that everyone needs to work for themselves, I’m saying that if we can embrace the hustler mentality we can be more in control of our own lives, which gives us greater capacity to help others do the same.

Top-down solutions, rarely successful to begin with, are no longer serving us. The complexity of the problems that surround us must be addressed from the bottom up — by those of us who have skin in the game, have everything to lose.

Hustlers find solutions, not because they have money or power, but because they have no other choice.

What if we all had more control of our own lives not because we didn’t want to rely on others, but because that control allowed us to better support each other?

Whether you’re an entrepreneur, solopreneur, side hustler, or 9-5er looking for a better life—The Hustler’s Manifesto will show you how to manifest a life you love and control, manage the next apocalypse like a boss, and turn uncertainty to your favor.

I’ll give you a macro perspective on labor, capitalism, rest, worth, productivity, the decentralization of work, and the reclamation of personal agency.

I’m not here to tell you how to make a quick buck, I’m here to change the way work is done so we can live more meaningful lives right now, instead of betting on an uncertain future.

Who am I and why should you care?

I’m Sarah Duran. I quit my 9-5 because I was tired of people telling me what to do, how to do it, and what I was worth. Now I run a successful freelance business and help other solopreneurs get what they need out of entrepreneurship EVERY. DAY.

By day I'm a freelance project manager for companies and universities, by night (j/k...actually also by day) I'm a solopreneur coach and content creator who helps solopreneurs all over the world live up to their highest potential.
