Self-care for purposeful hustlers

on May 3, 2021 6:45:00 AM By | Deanna Singh | 0 Comments | Purpose Skills Life Plan Self-Care
These days, we hear the word “self-care” tossed around a lot. It’s used in so many different ways and has become a buzzword to sell products ranging from face masks to yoga classes. It’s used so much that it can almost feel like another form of stress. We might get caught thinking, “I have so much going on already, and now I need to worry about self-care too!” But whether we like it or not, taking good care of ourselves is essential. We need to be a friend to ourselves. Especially as Purposeful Hustlers, in order to live into our purpose, we need to be able to be the best versions of ourselves. We need to know what we need to stay healthy, mentally, physically, and emotionally. Our wellbeing is SO IMPORTANT.

How to Afford to Change Your Life

on Apr 19, 2021 9:45:00 AM By | Deanna Singh | 0 Comments | Life Impact Social Change Plan Career Initiative
One of the most common obstacles people mention to me when wanting to do impactful work is finances. It seems like there’s never enough money to make the changes in your life that will help you live within your purpose or create the impact that you want to see. This is where the hustle part of Purposeful Hustle kicks in. With little or no money, I have seen people create countless impactful solutions. In fact, I soon realized in my philanthropic work that the organizations with the biggest impact are often the ones who are underfunded. Why? Because those organizations prioritize impact over fundraising and are too busy doing the work to raise the money. You CAN make a huge impact with a small cash flow.

Plan Like a Purposeful Hustler

on Mar 8, 2021 4:22:00 PM By | Deanna Singh | 0 Comments | Skills Life Plan
  One of the number one questions I get from people is "How do you find the time to do all of the things that you are doing?" I wish that I had a magic time machine that made additional time. But I don’t have one! (If you do, please share!) After reflecting on this question, I realized that I do have a pretty intentional system that I have been using over the past decade to help me achieve my Purposeful Hustle goals!  To date, it has been a mixture of things in my head, a few tools, and a couple of notes here and there. BUT as a gift to myself, and to all of the Purposeful Hustlers out there, I decided to actually see if I could turn it into a system that I could share with others.  And guess what, it’s here!
