    Went to be a networking meeting and some guy comes up and we start chatting.

    He left with me with him saying how you gotta do whatever you gotta do to make that paper, your well being counts on it.

    He told me how he had nothing when he started but how he slowly gained and all. He was so bad off to the point, he had no bank account and had to rely on a prepaid card.

    now the guy is doing awesome. I like stories like his, makes me more inspired to get out there and get my hustle on.

    Another guy who was in the conversation, was telling me that hustling sounds bad and scammy. I am interested in what you guys think

    Fuck that second guy, he sounds like a chump. Sounds like he's never been in a seriously bad situation where you have to do whatever it takes to get out. He also sounds like the kind of dweeb who doesn't have the wherewithal to get serious paper through self-employment or entrepreneurship... He sounds like your typical employee type who worries about holidays and benefits.

    You've got to hustle to get that motherfucking paper, 24/7. Stack money.

    Yeah. Like that Rick Ross joint!

    "Whip it good. Whip it, whip it reaal good!" :cool:

    Hustlin has some class meanings for some people but like Autumn said. Funk that
    cause it ain't always sweet and long as you don't hurt anyone or land in jail do whatever
    you got to do to make ends and you're a winner!

    The 2nd guy is b-u-m. hustling is an art. Just like in sports the guy that is moving the hardest and making moves make its work.

    I hustle everyday. I got two kids and a wife to feed.

    Setting a goal and busting your ass until you achieve it.

    Urban Dictionary sums it up pretty well:

    1) "Hustling iz makin' money out of everything no matter what it iz something that mostly happenz in ghetto'z where people don't have much so they need to hustle"

    2) "Havin the ambition and drive to do everything and anything to make mad money."

    3) "hustlin's doin whatever you gotta do to get that paper"

    There's a right hustle and a wrong hustle. There's a good hustle and a bad hustle, so the second guy's understanding of "hustle" depends on his personal experience, and in his case the experience is negative. Originally, hustle, meant to work hard and to do whatever it takes to achieve your goals without hurting anyone in the process.

    $300/hour sucking dick or anything else for that kind of money. $30 an hour from a CPA company is not hustling, it's kissing ass. Not sure what's better tho.

    I know for me, it's been a tough road with the economy and how my life has played out. I can say this with experience.

    I don't have a bank account so I often times have a hard time with getting money because people all like Paypal and all that stuff so what I do with my clients is I'll do the work then when it's finished. I'll have them buy the load cards for my prepaid visa It's a major risk but you gotta do what you can do to make it all work out and to survive.

    as nike says, just do it

    Hustling: Tricking people into thinking you are really bad at something, then convincing them to gamble with you thinking you will be easy to make money and then you take al their oney.
    Hustling: Buying and selling drugs.

    Shall I go on? There are so many definitions for being a hustler. Maybe it conotate something negative to some people

    Thats ok that guy who doesn't want to be a hustler will end up working for one.

    hustlers rule the world

    The only way to make it is to hustly yo a**

    Please would one person who is actually successful come on here and say yeah man I just sat back and watched the money come flowing in.
    I doubt it.

    Any successful person will say dude I hustled my a** of to get here.

    Hustling: Hitting the streets, going door to door trying to sell product or service.

    Hustlin means taking action to acquire capitol. Hustlers never give up and keep pushin it not matter if they fail or are successful. Hustlers move like the water, always taking shape of the situation as it forms, staying flexible. Hustlers are good at thinking on their feet and always look at the finish line and never looking behind.
