My Inbox to Yours 004 | Rock Bottom and Back

This fourth installment of My Inbox to Yours is a special one because Andrea wrote to me when things were falling apart and then followed back up when she Hustled her way back :) …Love you for this Andrea ;)

This morning I hit rock bottom. My husband and I were evicted from our home with our two dogs. All of our possessions are now in storage, and we’re picking up the pieces.

He’s a realtor and I’ve owned my own business for four years. We were doing well, but then things changed. Try as I might, I just didn’t recover in time. And we couldn’t catch up on bills.

I just want to thank you. We are living in a hotel, but he’s up this morning on the phones like he does everyday- and I’m sitting here doing my business plan for the next six months. I’m also looking for a part time job.

You inspire us. Nothing is an excuse- even homelessness.


She followed up with another email after a few weeks:

Two months ago my business failed, my business partner gave up, and before I knew it, I was homeless and my car was repoed.

With your motivation, I made the most of it, stopped complaining, and went right back to the hustle. While living in a hotel with my husband and my two dogs, I got a new job, we found a new home, and I restarted my side hustle. We finally moved into a new house the day before Christmas Eve and I began my job on Jan 3rd.

Since then we’ve caught up on bills and we are enjoying life.

Thank you again for the hustle. Two months from now I will have a sitcom in production, a movie in Production, my side hustle will have made me over $30,000, and my day job supports everything I do.

You’re more than just motivation. You’re a life changer. ❤️
