Hustle Harder, Hustle Smarter

by: 50 Cent (0)


For the first time, Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson opens up about his amazing comeback—from tragic personal loss to thriving businessman and cable’s highest-paid executive—in this unique self-help guide, his first since his blockbuster New York Times bestseller The 50th Law.

In his early twenties Curtis Jackson, known as 50 Cent rose to the heights of fame and power in the cutthroat music business. A decade ago the multi-platinum selling rap artist decided to pivot. His ability to adapt to change was demonstrated when he became the executive producer and star of Power, a high-octane, gripping crime drama centered around a drug kingpin’s family. The series quickly became “appointment” television, leading to Jackson inking a four-year, $150 million contract with the Starz network—the most lucrative deal in premium cable history.

Now, in his most personal book, Jackson shakes up the self-help category with his unique, cutting-edge lessons and hard-earned advice on embracing change. Where The 50th Law tells readers “fear nothing and you shall succeed,” Hustle Harder, Hustle Smarter builds on this message, combining it with Jackson’s street smarts and hard-learned corporate savvy to help readers successfully achieve their own comeback—and to learn to flow with the changes that disrupt their own lives.

The Reviews

While its clear that 50 Cent has amassed a huge amount of success in his own life I was not particularly hopeful that he would be able to articulate what principles have led to his success. I could not have been more wrong. In fact, if there is one thing that makes this book better than its contemporaries it Is that he speaks genuinely, plainly and his advice is practical.This book feels usable, one of the things that makes this book so usable is that its laced with real examples from the author's life that illustrate how the referenced principles have helped him in a particular situation. As a consumer of the self improvement; one of my major complaints is that the authors really don't have much credibility. Sure, some of them have a few examples of some minor successes, or stories about a principle working in their personal lives. 50 Cent's advantage in writing this book is that, his examples involve people we all know, and his success speak for themselves.In total, this probably isn't a life changing book but if you are a 50 cent fan or a self improvement fan it is worth the price

BUT I typically don't read, I'm sure you can tell with the way I speak through text how much I really read... I am from the streets and I'm so tired of struggling, so I decided its time to take action and reading was something I know I was slacking on, long story short, thank you for writing in a way I can understand and relate to on personal levels. From what I can tell your a very busy guy, so just wanted to show gratitude!

I read a lot and can normally finish a book in just a few days but I savored this one! I read a few pages and then just sat with the story and the lesson and felt all the emotions! I didn’t want to read it fast it was just too good. You are not doing yourself any favors by not buying it. I have a new perspective on him as an artist and a man. I am new to the acting industry and initially bought it just to gain insight on someone who I would like to work with one day but wow! SO GOOD! Filled with so many lessons and honestly motivated the hell out of me! Stop Scrolling, just hit that BUY NOW button and you can thank me later ;)

This is my new favorite book. Some people might not find Curtis Jackson credible enough to write a book on self-development. This book proves them wrong. It's worth every cent.Top three things I learned:1. If people in your circle are unwilling to evolve with you even after repeated attempts to inspire them, it might be time to move on.2. Have a vision. Focus on the potential, not the payday, but know your value.Entitlement is a trap.3. The world doesn't owe you anything, and you don't owe the world anything.Now get the audiobook.Never stop investing in yourself. Keep learning. If you seek, you shall find.

I purchased the book in order to gain potential insight into how the corporate world interacts with the streets from 50 Cent's / Curtis Jackson's perspective. Do corporate executives shy away from business dealings because of your street history? Are they cocky? Scared? Do you have to be assertive, subtle, or creative to gain their trust to close deals?His book delivered that insight plus much more valuable information on a more personal level by discussing his experience with friendships, marriage, raising children, etc. There are a number of issues he spoke on that are relatable to common people that you would think could be solved once you "make it," but come to find out, that doesn't necessarily happen. He really opened up and shared a lot of his thought processes and inner emotions in different settings, allowing the reader to understand his moves.There's a lot more I can say, but just get the book and read it for yourself. The jewels he drops are valuable, pick 'em up.

We've always known there was a method to his madness, and now Curtis Jackson (aka 50 Cent) shares all with HUSTLE HARDER, HUSTLE SMARTER.There are so many nuggets in this book, delivered in a way that we are sure to not only understand for ourselves. It also helps us to understand the man and how he has continued to rise time and again.HUSTLE HARDER, HUSTLE SMARTER first of all rejects the idea of fear. As he mentions if you allow fear to keep you from even trying then you have already lost. He also talks about the importance of not giving up. Allowing adversities and bumps along the road to train him as well as propel him, Curtis Jackson shares how you can reach heights others thought were impossible.Some of his most famous "disagreements" with public figures are discussed in the book, but only in the context of how they fit into his bigger theme and message. Another great nugget? Don't try to be anyone but yourself, because at the end of the day being real is all that matters.A masterclass from beginning to end, HUSTLE HARDER, HUSTLE SMARTER shines as a guide for those looking for encouragement in business as well as life.

This is hands down one of the best book’s I’ve read.

This was nice. Not only did I obtain some solid advice on how I can move in my occupation and relationships but I also some interesting facts about Curtis Jackson that I wouldn’t have gotten from just his music. This book has solid advice and good personal stories.

Love, Love, Love this Book!!

I learned a lot from Hustle Harder, Hustle Smarter. I learned techniques and strategies that I will apply to my daily life as an author. I also learned new things about 50 Cent. I respect his hustle, ambition, and endeavors. The man is an entrepreneur and a legend. Thanks, Fifty!

Very witty, intelligent 🧠, and great: and also real. The way he words things and stories gives you insight on how things happened in his life. This gives the read er or reader knowledge that applies or needs to apply in their life.

I’m happily surprised that I picked up more data to increase my knowledge than expected, I;m glad I followed my creative intuition to take a chance in purchasing Hustle Harder Hustle Smarter even with my logical awareness that I am outside the intended target audience demographic. I’m previously familiar with some of his music because around 2003/2004 when I was living in California (through the navy) some of his songs were very popular on some of the radio stations and it was pretty easy to also listen to some of his music videos online. This kindlebook Hustle Harder Hustle Smarter by Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson is parts mentorship-like and parts autobiography. The author goes into explain some of the multiple reasons why his mother’s death when he was so young indirectly influenced his boldness and courage. He is also candid about both the good and far from easy dynamics of his family life which that disclosure in of itself makes things relatable, a persuasive case is built on why increased clarity is extremely essential when going after what one wants, the author explains why a person must do what they can to keep their momentum even when having to navigate around certain expected andor unexpected challenges, the author explains some of the multiple reasons why even many people working in more prestigious career fields andor at the tope of their career fields are far from immune to the peaks and valleys (stockbroker, schoolteacher, musician etc), details are given in how the author came to trust his instincts, multiple supporting details are woven in why knowing one’s value including some of the ways he helped advise one of his friends towards regaining their self confidence in the knowing one’s value realm, persuasive examples are given on how a person can train themselves to metaphorically/intuitively see the writing on the wall with multiple analogies given (example of movie streaming given), what the author symbolizes in connection with expanding your mind via your circle, the author’s candid acknowledgement of why he attracted many successful women from multiple walks of life (lawyers, doctors, actresses, entrepreneurs etc) and how this is of interest to readers of various walks of life, an entertaining chapter pertaining to friends and more.

This was not a typicql self help book that I’d read, but having heard that 50 was the man that really embodied Robert Greene’s ideas, i became curious. Filled with advices from a person who had skin in the game, this book provides a unique voice to the self help genre

Enjoyed reading!

I had previously owned a Bonavita which I purchased May 2019. Exactly 3 years later, this gooseneck kettle quit. When I had looked at the possibility of replacing the Bonavita, I had sticker shock. I was also dismayed by the reviews which indicated that the new wholesaler handling Bonavita products had a less than desirable customer service.After much research, I chose this COSORI gooseneck kettle. Upon receiving the kettle, I read the entire manual and performed the water test before first use; registered my purchase as instructed, carefully followed all instructions for care and use.After using this kettle for my morning pour over coffee exactly 5 days, the kettle quit functioning. I immediately emailed the company to request service and was promptly and courteously responded to by "Andrew" of Etekcity(a COSORI electric kettle unit). I provided him video, photo and description of the problem with the kettle. Before the day was over, Andrew had a new kettle shipped for replacement.I was very impressed with the courtesy and acknowledgement of my electric kettle failure. No arguments, no blame, nothing but a "let us make this right" response.I've used my replacement kettle for over a month now. Not a single issue. There is much to love about this fact, I like it better than my Bonavita.There is so much to like about this kettle. I timed the heating for the coffee setting which was at just under 3-1/2 minutes. The kettle is well balanced and easy on my wrists. The pour is perfect. I just want a kettle that works and this model does it perfectly.I am more than happy with my purchase and the customer service I received after my initial issue with the kettle.Considering that these are made in China and under COVID lockdowns - there is so much that can go wrong with quality control of products and parts of Chinese origin.Everything is right with Etekcity products (Cosori) and their responses to these possible quality control issues.They do things right. Thank you Cosori and Etekcity...especially Andrew-the agent that graciously and efficiently handled my issue.

I researched a lot before purchasing the Cosori kettle. My goal was to detoxify my kitchen- meaning avoidance of plastic or glazed ceramic, and also to free up my stove top. This pot is stainless steel inside- non-toxic. Way easier to use than a larger stovetop kettle and has better ability to use varied temperatures for coffee and different types of teas. The gooseneck spout makes pouring easier and safer, more controlled. ( I’ve burnt myself before using larger bulky kettles). I like the quick heating and the ability to hold temp until next cup. It’s just the right size , not too heavy, and holds about 3 cups fluid perfect for my 8oz coffee plus 16 oz tea. This works well also to make a quart of iced tea . Only small complaint is that the beep to notify it’s reached temperature is not very loud so sometimes I don’t hear it if there is any noise in the house. I purchased this in April and wanted to wait several months before reviewing. Now it’s the end of July and it’s still working fine! I’ve been using it almost every day for pour -over coffee and for green, black, and herb teas. I’ve seen other reviews showing the pot sputtering and boiling over, however it doesn’t do that if you respect the max fill line. Last but not least it’s got a beautiful black matte finish and no chipping or scratches yet! I am very happy with this purchase.

This product does exactly what it promises to do - and it does it quite well. The water boils very fast, it pours in a controllable stream with no drips, and it feels balanced to the hand when pouring. My wife used to use 2 hands to steady our previous kettle when pouring, but doesn't need to use a second hand with this one. The touch-buttons work quietly and reliably, the preset temperatures work as advertised, and the handle stays cool to the touch.The only thing I would recommend to make this kettle even better is to have markings on the inside surface of the pot that allow you to measure how much water you are putting in the kettle. At present, it only has a max-fill line. I would have found a 1-cup, 2-cup, 3-cup, etc. set of lines very helpful so I don't heat more water than is needed for the size of my morning beverage. Overall, this is a very good product at a comparatively reasonable cost.

Loved doing this! Colors are vibrant, such a calm and relaxing thing to do after a long day. Wished it came with more zip bags to hold all the beads (had to buy a container separately) other than that great product.

Everything was here and it comes with two sets of tools. That was a nice touch 😊

Very easy to read. My second diamond painting I fell in love with this cow she looks just like a cow we had when I was raising my children. Colors are just right easy to read I framed it. Everyone loves it.

Very colorful

Loved it!

Super happy with how this one turned out. The size is big enough that you can see the details. It was a “trust the process” type painting as my brain was not understanding the colors being used but it turned out amazing!

It took me 3 days to finish it

Quality canvas. Easy to read symbols. Drills are equal size and not irrigular.
