If you work at a company that actually supports you, then hustle can be a good thing. If you work at a company that needlessly exploits you, then you should be using your hustle somewhere else.
I work at a bakery. I do 10 hour shifts that are almost all hustle and hard work. It is by no means my dream job, but you know what?
- I have benefits, and I get paid pretty fairly.
- I have a positive work environment.
- I have a boss that has my back.
I am more than willing to hustle for her, pick up extra shifts, help out, come in for meetings on my days off. Good companies give back.
