    Ep. 35 The Arena - How and Why to Tune out the Critics

    Anyone can be a critic. Anyone can sit on the sidelines and judge, mock, talk about, criticize, but not everyone can be in the game. The ones in the game are the ones who have decided not to sit on the sidelines, decided not to let that opportunity, that idea, let live on the sidelines or bleacher seats.
    This episode is a summary about a speech made from Teddy Roosevelt and how relatable it is for The Virtual Hustle community. 
    Because if you're listening to this, you're one of the people who made the decision to be in the game. And we're here for it. We're here to help you push on, put your head down and put in the work.
    A quick motivational episode for ya.
