One of the questions I’ve been asked before, and have asked myself, is why don’t I write about fitness more? The Hustle Planet brand was started as a hub for fitness, business, and motivational ideas. The three pillars of ‘Hustle’ in my mind. Well the short answer is this: I don’t have a lot to say about it. The longer answer needs some explanation.
People often ask entrepreneurs, athletes, and other successful people, “What is the key to success?” They want a magic formula or path they can follow to get there.

Brett Favre was known for being tough. He got those records by playing through pain and never giving up.
I have never liked working for others, that’s a fact. I got my first job when I was 16 working for a guy who did a lot of odd jobs. Mowing lawns, installing docks, shrink-wrapping boats, things like that. I had a few other manual labor jobs because that’s the best I could get as a teenager and the pay was decent. I never had a great work ethic because these jobs were not careers to me, they were temporary jobs to help me pay for college and other expenses.
One of the first big role models I had growing up was Chuck Norris. The Chuck Norris 'Facts' came out around 2006 when I was in middle school. I didn’t know much about the man, other than he was a famous martial artist, movie actor, and tough guy. My friends and I would sit around the lunch table and exchange our favorite ‘Facts’ and got into the whole Chuck Norris hysteria that became a pop culture phenomenon.
