“My boss thinks I’m smart (I’m not). It’s because I read The Hustle (and he has no idea it exists).” — Reader of The Hustle

Spoiler alert: We’re going to be talking about The Hustle, a free business & tech newsletter that’s delivered to inboxes M-F at 8 AM Eastern with no spam whatsoever.

Just spend 5 minutes of your morning routine to quickly get informed about the most impactful business news. Your watercooler moments (or Zoom/Slack moments for now) will get a level up, and being informed, just makes you look good.

It Cuts Through The Noise

Your unread inbox number might be growing and we get it. There’s a lot of content out there, but after a while, it all starts to look the same or the quality just doesn’t deliver.

But, believe us when we say we always read The Hustle newsletter on the weekday daily.

Scott Belsky, CPO of Adobe says it’s best: “I get a lot of daily business/news digest, but I find The Hustle to be the perfect intersection of informative, witty, and timely.”

It’s authentic and there’s no BS. Their amusing writing style keeps us going back but also the depth of the articles, which is why 1.5 million readers (including those that work at Amazon, Airbnb, Facebook, Spotify, Medium, etc) start their day with it.

Sunday Original Stories

While you get the 5 minute reads on the weekdays, on Sundays, there’s a dedicated long-form email for more leisurely reading. This typically features a deep-dive into one topic. Some topics where you’re like “oh yeah, I’ve totally wondered about that!” and some topics where it’s like “Wow I didn’t know I needed to know this but I love it.”

Popular stories included:

  • The Economics of All-You-Can-Eat-Buffets
  • Why It Only Costs $10K to “Own” a Chick-fil-A Franchise
  • The Man Feeding a Remote Alaska Town with a Costco Card and a Ship
  • How Are Bitcoin Created?
  • The Rise and Demise of Subway’s $5 Footlong Promotion

It’s Free Journalism

You might’ve encountered the “You’ve Read Your Monthly Article Limit Today” when you tap on articles online.

But with The Hustle, it’s 100% free and vetted quality research. Combined with a killer wit, there’s no reason not to check it out, so sign up and get smarter by just spending 5 minutes reading.
