Good Hustle

A social enterprise design course for people ready to change the world

Gain clarity, insights and inspiration to fuel your social entrepreneurship. Good Hustle is a ten-week online program created by StartSomeGood 

Good Hustle for people who are serious about turning their vision into a reality and determined to use their talents, passion and ingenuity to build a better world. Because the truth is….

The World Needs You

The time to grow your social enterprise idea is now. Business as Usual isn’t good enough. There are great challenges ahead of us but great opportunities to, and we need people filled with courage and purpose to lead. 

People like you.

You wouldn’t be here if you didn’t have an idea to do good. Perhaps you’re already working on it or even launched and serving customers. But you want more. You want to gain clarity and unlock growth so you can create a bigger impact.

And you want to avoid the curse of so many aspiring social entrepreneurs: uncertainty, stagnation and burn-out. Without a realistic plan you rightly worry that your idea will languish. You may be uncertain how to start, or what “launch ready” would even look like.

That’s what this course is for.

Our Guarantees…

Who Created Good Hustle?

Hi! I’m Tom and I’m the Cofounder and CEO of StartSomeGood and the Host of Good Hustle

The team at StartSomeGood and I have spent the last ten years helping people design and launch social impact projects and enterprises.

We have helped passionate people raise millions at our StartSomeGood crowdfunding platform where we have the highest project success rate in cause crowdfunding. We run accelerators and capacity-building programs for partners like Optus, ING, Austral Fisheries, the Cities of Sydney, Melbourne and Parramatta and the United Nations Development Program.

We have seen what works and what doesn’t and we have used that insight to create Good Hustle – a ten-week course that walks through the key and universal elements a successful social enterprise must have, helping you design a model that can work and a plan you can make happen.

How it Works

Duration:       10 weeks

Where:            Entirely online

Format:           Real-time cohort

Commitment: Work at your own pace


The program includes:

  • 5 modules with 14 total video lessons
  • 3 live conversations and Q&A's with successful social entrepreneurs
  • 3 live coaching calls with Tom
  • Workbooks and exercises to help you turn advice into action
  • Peer learning pods with like-minded cohort members
  • An online peer learning space
  • Lifetime access to all lessons, including live calls which are all recorded


See the full list of teachers and topics 

Gain clarity on your impact and business models, craft a compelling pitch and identify the right audience to deliver it to, learn how to use video and social media for maximum impact on minimum budget, plan your next steps and go-to-market strategy and design a personal self-course routine to ensure you don't burn out.

Ultimately, this is the chance to make progress, create impact and live the life of purpose you seek while avoiding the frustration, inability to make progress and ultimately burn-out which is all-to-common in this sector.

Testimonials

"One of the key learning from the program was simply getting clarity on what my idea was. I had so many different ideas I could implement but I needed the direction and guidance to know which one to start with and why."

- Mel Kenny, Made of Substance

"Thanks to the Good Hustle program, I have implemented thorough step by step planning for each idea that has potential, allowing me to estimate what is needed in order to make the idea a reality and what type of data I need to collect to improve on my assumptions."

- Melissa Moxey is launching a skin-cream line designed to suit her Polynesian skin tones, made from sustainable local ingredients called Arah Body.

"Inspired with the Business Models session, we analysed over 50 real-world existing business models and landed with one that had real-world precedent, that we could confidently go out and test."

- Matthew Haren launched Tablehood, a network of people using the power of the mealtime table to create connection, relationships and belonging.

"The storytelling module helped me understand how to tell my story in a way that really highlights why I do what I do. It helped explain my work much more clearly and in a much more engaging way of connecting with people."

- Julia Schneider launched Alive With Possibility, a transformational coaching practice using nature.

The course has been so helpful not just for fundraising but for figuring out how to tell our story in general.

- Aime Kalangwa in Uganda, who is launching an innovation lab and maker space to support entrepreneurial young people.

Good Hustle June

Starts: June 7

Theme: No special theme, just a chance for you to design and launch the social enterprise of your dreams!

Learn from those who have been before you

Great mentors and trusted teachers are essential on the road less travelled. You’ll be learning with Tom Dawkins and the team at StartSomeGood, and meeting some of the best and most insightful social enterprises from around the world.

The teachers you'll meet are all founders themselves as well as experts in their niche. They'll share strategies and tactics to help you avoid common mistakes and set you up for success!


Know Your "Why"

You need to be 100% clear on why you do what you do. The 'How' and 'What' can be learned (and we'll walk you through it step by step) but your "Why" is unique to you: it will come from within and it will light the way for as long as you are out there hustlin' for good.



Have the courage to start and discipline to keep going

Let's be clear, whoever said: "Do what you love, and you'll never work a day in your life" probably wasn't out there running a social enterprise and trying to change the world.

Some days the good hustle will make your heart burst with joy. Other days it will make your heart break. And so we have included lessons on mindset, mindfulness, and self-care to help you keep your head in the game. And, crucially, you’ll be part of a community of social entrepreneurs also on the journey, who will share the ups and downs and keep you accountable.
