#28 Building a media empire out of a daily email newsletter, The Hustle with Sam Parr

“Email since it began 25 years ago has changed very little, whereas Facebook changes dramatically in a couple of months – we couldn’t rely on anyone else.”

Firing off an irreverent note to attract non-techies to an event, Sam Parr had never envisaged he would resurrect email to start a media company – The Hustle – a daily email newsletter. A young gun set to be the next media mogul uncovers bumping into Tim Ferriss walking his dog and writing amazon romance novels to journey through The Hustle’s own hustle. Today, The Hustle has over 0.5m subscribers, a cash positive balance fuelled by advertising and over $1m in funding.

Available as podcast in iTunes (Apple), Spotify and Stitcher (Android).
