The Hustle Fam: Volume 1

On a random Thursday, we asked our readers to send a picture of where they were, right then and there, reading The Hustle. Here are a few that we received.


The Hustle Fam: Volume 1

“In my living room in Montevideo, Uruguay with my family. Reading out loud funny quotes from The Hustle to my wife while she breastfeeds. Cheers!” — Burke


“Hi! That’s me in the middle of my Millennial sons.” — Anne


“Reading The Hustle on the front of Sailing Vessel Kristina in the middle of the Mediterranean while dolphins bow ride in front of me.” — Terra


“Doin’ the Hustle @ the Delta Sky Lounge LAX. Thanks for great content and sharp writing.” — Christian


“Good morning, I’m reading the Hustle every morning when I get to work in Auckland, New Zealand!” — Aaron


“Hi! So you want to know when/how I read The Hustle, huh? As I live in Japan, the email arrives at 1am. Recently I seem to still be awake at that time, having had video calls with colleagues who are mostly in the US. Yes, timezones suck…

Then The Hustle arrives, I decide to take a quick look before going to bed, and before you know it an hour or two have passed. Take tonight, for instance. You linked to Tubthumping and now I’ve been sucked into a stream of nostalgic 90s guitar pop. But you’ll have to try harder than that to make me unsubscribe.” — Daniel


“I have a very busy desk. I like to think it is stimulating.” — Kathleen


“Always read it at my desk at work! P.S. Thanks for not taking Columbus Day off and making Monday worse (The Skimm took the day off!).” — Amber


“I read you guys most days on my lunch break, but you caught me hanging in a hammock on a boat in Charleston that my friend Jon and I are AirBnBing while we build out version 1.0 of my company’s product. Nice timing!” — Ben


“Always read it with my breakfast at work here in Shanghai. You can see the world’s second tallest building in distance in a good sunny day. Today is rainy.” — Marina


“I base my lunch around reading this damn email.” — Jonathan


“Reading the Hustle while waiting for my flight at SFO.” — Sally Jo

“I live in Melbourne, Australia so I receive your emails at about 3AM in the morning!

“Hi! I read The Hustle either on my phone or iPad, typically in mid morning when it hits my inbox. I happen to be reading it from a factory in Shenzhen, China this week…sadly, no self-driving cars here but they sure as hell could use them! Great job guys, lovin’ The Hustle!” — Eiryanna
