Made by Good Hustlers for Good Hustlers in Sydney Australia.    Copyright © 2019. 

 You’ve got an idea for a purpose-driven business.

You’re buzzing with energy and your idea’s been keeping you up at night. 

But it’s just not happening quick enough. 

Things keep coming up that slow you down.

It ought to be easier to bring a good idea to life. 

That’s what Good Hustle is all about.

~

Life is too short to give your energy and skills to a company or work life, that at best bores you and at worst violates all that you stand for.

Good Hustle is for passionate, ambitious and future focussed people with big hearts and sharp intellects. 

You are the future makers, the community builders, the good hustlers!

Now is the time to empower yourself with a flexible lifestyle and purpose-driven business; to use your smarts, skills and creativity to create a positive impact in the world, you'd be proud to tell your grandkids about.

You could go it alone, but why would you want to? Trying to figure things out by yourself is slow and you'll likely make costly mistakes. 

We'll save you time, money and frustration as we help you organize your thoughts into a business model with thoughtful design for a product or service your customers will love, that generates profit and creates REAL change on the issue area you are seeking to impact.

How It Works
 

Give Your Good Idea The Time and Energy it Deserves

There are two ways you invest in your dream... financially and with your time getting focused, making a plan and doing the work!

Let's talk cash first. 

Good Hustle is $749USD. It's a bargain for the value you will receive.

Book in before May 10 and get the whole program for $497 upfront or apply the early bird discount to a payment plan of 4 x monthly payments of $134.

Early Bird rate ONLY valid until May 10th.

Time-wise, you'll want to give yourself at least 4-6 hours a week from early June to mid August to watch the videos, complete worksheets and connect with your peer learning group.

Of course the more work you put in, the more you get out of it. You may find that when passion and purpose collide, time dissolves, you get in flow and end up investing two or three times the suggested time commitment. We'd call that a good hustle ;)





What Happens After You Enrol?

You'll receive a welcome email from us. These emails sometimes go to folders other than your main inbox, so please check your other folders, in particular the "Promotions" folder in Gmail accounts.

The program begins Monday 3 June and lessons will be activated one module at a time, so make sure when you enrol you tick the box to "receive instructional emails".

Save the date for the live calls, held 9:45-11:45am AEST on June 11, July 23 and August 6 (please note the time translates to the day before in some timezones and all calls are recorded.}

There has never been a better time to start a business that does good.

We see this all around us from consumers wanting to shop their values, graduates demanding purpose-driven work, the rise of social enterprise and the increasing interest in impact investment.

But what does it really take to design and launch a social enterprise?

With decades of experience working in the social startup sector, we believe there are:


  3 KEY FACTORS TO SUCCESS:





1. Learn from those who have walked before you. 

Great mentors and trusted teachers are essential on the road less traveled. We hear this all the time, including recently at the #StartingGood Summit where both Mark Brand and Holly Ransom talked about how vital it is to have great teachers in your corner to support you along the way. 

The entrepreneurs you'll learn from in Good Hustle are all experts in their niche. They'll share strategies and tactics to help you avoid common mistakes that DIYers make and set you up for success!





2. Know your why: 

 You need to be 100% clear on why you do what you do. The "How" and the "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 continue to light the way for as long as you are out there hustlin' for good.





3. 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. We have included lessons on mindset, mindfulness, and self-care to help you keep your head in the game.

What is the Good Hustle really about? 

The world is abundant in ideas, what really counts is your ability to take action and bring your good idea to life!
The difference between an entrepreneur and someone with a good idea is focused action.
We'll help you get you idea out of your head, and pen down a plan to build a thriving business that creates meaningful change in your corner of the world.
