The 3 Rules of Hustling

Dave Delaney

Marcus Whitney TEDx Nashville TalkI'm not going to lie, I was flattered by being included in my friend, Marcus Whitney's inspiring TEDx Nashville talk. Unfortunately, I was out of town and missed the annual celebration of uplifting tales of Technology, Education, and Design. Imagine my surprise when I started receiving tweets that I was in Marcus' presentation. Marcus' three rules of hustling are: 1. Believe, 2. Partner Up, and 3. Orchestrate. Watch his inspiring presentation to better understand what Marcus means by each rule. There is so much to learn here.

I'm proud to be a co-founder of BarCamp Nashville. I couldn't have done it without my partner, Marcus. His TEDx talk serves as a reminder to me about the importance of networking. My own career in a new city where I didn't know a soul was born from networking. I go into all of those details in my book.

[Tweet "It takes belief to spark serendipity."]

I am fascinated by serendipity and the unexpected chain of events that lead us through our lives. However, it takes belief to spark serendipity. I know with certainty that without belief in yourself (rule #1), you won't get far in your hustle.

It took gumption and belief in myself (something I sometimes still struggle with) to begin cold-calling and setting up coffee meetings when I first moved to Nashville. I probably wouldn't have met Marcus were it not for my mustering up the courage to meet with strangers.

Seth Godin wrote a poignant post about confidence. He wrote:

Effective confidence comes from within, it's not the result of external events. The confident salesperson is likely to close more sales. The confident violinist expresses more of the music. The confident leader points us to the places we want (and need) to go.

You succeed because you've chosen to be confident. It's not really useful to require yourself to be successful before you're able to become confident.

Watch Marcus' TEDx Nashville talk now to kickstart your hustle.
