I was on the bus yesterday morning headed to work and a man got on the bus through one of the back doors with a wagon full of essential oils. He was selling them as an alternative to perfume and other fragrance options. He said a general hello to the rest of the passengers on the bus then sat down. I got off before he did, so I never knew where he was going, but it didn’t matter. He was already at work.
He was hustlin’. And for us who are consistent with the hustle, we know it never quits. We may say we’re gonna have a little side hustle after work and on our off hours, but we get the hustle in whenever we can. Nighttime, daytime, anytime, we are hustlin’!
I don’t know if I’ll ever find myself selling oils or whatever else can be transported in some tote or wagon, but sometimes we gotta step outside what seems normal to earn a little extra money. And we gotta work when the opportunity presents itself. Think of the people at the promenades. Whether they’re pretending to be still as a statue, move robotically or perform magic tricks, they’re all working out side our normal comfort zones. And doing it during prime hours.
Hustlers are different. We’re not like everyone else. Because deep down, we don’t want what everyone else is willing to settle for. That’s why we hustle.
