C Mallee ,

One of the underrated pods. Rising to the top!

I was lucky enough to be featured on the pod recently but even before that, I was a big fan. The staff from front to back is tremendous and they work tirelessly to get true and meaningful stories to the forefront. Awesome content from awesome people!

Great Host & Content

I had the opportunity to be on Hustle & Motivate and had an incredible experience. Tyler is an amazing host who was well prepared and drove great conversation. Between this podcast and his newsletter, this is definteily something you should check out and use for daily motivation.

Both helpful and motviational

What makes this podcast helpful to me is that I get to hear from honest working people about how they started from humble beginnings and rose to new heights in their profession through sheer will and determination. The podcast is straightforward; it holds no ulterior motive. Tyler simply wants to share stories that people can identify with and help motivate them to achive their own goals. It's somewhat reflective but it's nice to see the growth in both style and execution of the podcast and the Joker Mag website through Tyler's own hustle and motivation. The sky's the limit. Stay ambitious.
