An unquenchable fire was set in me earlier today about who hustlers really are. I see pictures of folks with a laptop, blinks and maybe cash too. Flaunting them to us without telling us exactly how it was made. They wear designers and because they realise we don’t probably know how expensive it is since its only Gucci Mane most of us know because of the red and green label, they move to the extent of writing out the kind of phone that snapped the picture, the designer of the wristwatch, shirt, trousers, pairs of shoes and even socks.   A popular hash tag ends the caption. ” God bless my hustle”  “hustle must pay. ” “diary of an hustler ”  “tight hustler”

Ignorantly,  I as an entrepreneur unconsciously certified my self an hustler. I believed making money means hustling. So when I wake up, I look at my  white painted asbestos and say “God double my hustle. ” childishly,  I thought I was an hustler. I knew quite alright that I was practically different from someone who sells nothing, owns no brand and has no business yet spends lavishly. The world yet sees us as hustlers.

The dictionary helped me out this evening as to who an hustler is. ” An hustler is a person who employs fraudulent or unscrupulous methods to obtain money; swindler.” I didn’t form this, visit www.Dictionary.Com for proves. An entrepreneur is not an hustler except if this definition above applies to you. Entrepreneurship involves God, passion,  truth, time, integrity, patience and faithfulness. An entrepreneur will always hold on to what he or she does and will be proud to hand it over to its descendent.  An entrepreneur will always be among the richest in the world and not bury their money underneath because the wealth is explainable.

Entrepreneurs, let’s leave the hustlers to keep hustling. They indeed are the real hustlers, we are entrepreneurs.
