Sam Parr, CEO of The Hustle Tells His Wild Story...
"And how butterfingers are the key to happiness…"
Real talk. I haven’t laughed this hard or wanted to steal so many one liners on the podcast before. I really shouldn’t be surprised because my guest is SamParr, CEO & Founder of TheHustle.co. Sam is just about as quirky, funny, and strangely poignant as his site and newsletter.
I mean what can you expect from a dude who went from owning a hot dog company in Nashville, with commentary such as, “if you can sell meat on the street to strangers something good is going on,” to running a site with over 200k subscribers and millions of people frequenting his website.
It all started for him with HustleCon. A conference he created after he had sold one of his startups in Silicon Valley and was looking to surround himself with the smartest of the smart by hosting an event chock full of them. Maybe stimulating his next idea or two. He figured he’d lose some money, but gain a killer network. Turns out he got both. He made $60k on HustleCon, and a few years down the road they make a heck of a lot more than that and have thousands of attendees listening to hundreds of striving weirdos (my favorite types of humans).
We get into how Sam has systematically cultivated a Zero F’s attitude, the one piece of advice he gives to all salespeople, the thing he thinks we will look back on in 20 years and be amazed by, as well as what he tells himself when he is told, "No, you can't."
Spoiler: "Is it impossible according to the laws of physics? Hmm.. then watch me."
