Your Enneagram and your hustle style on the Enneagram MBA podcast

Inside this episode we are are getting into some "current events" - The Kardashians! 

Specifically what Kim shared as her best advice for women in business. While I didn't love it and thought it was interesting advice coming from her, I did love reading all the conversation it spurred on both side of the hustle aisle. 

Because this is the Enneagram MBA you'll hear about hustling through the lens of the Enneagram and the different ways we can hustle. Tune it to hear about: 

  • the different types of hustle that I learned from my Human Design friend Lauren Armstrong (@laurenearmstrong_ on Instagram). 
  • What hustle tends to look like based on each type and ultimately what they're running towards and away from
  • A cautionary note about anti-hustle and the one thing to focus on based on your type
