Our Mission

The Hustle Made Me Do It! is a Nashville-based podcast and media company co-founded by Luis Cortes and Cyndi Cortes, who recognized a need for more support for young entrepreneurs in minority communities. With Luis's entrepreneurial background and Cyndi's experience as a former professor and first-generation American, they launched a brand to empower up-and-coming entrepreneurs and cater to this demographic.

Our mission at THHMDI is to provide a platform for professionals, dreamers, and hustlers to share their unique stories and connect with like-minded peers. Our podcast features interviews with successful business owners and professionals from diverse backgrounds, covering topics ranging from finance and business to personal and professional growth. Since our launch in 2017, we have expanded from a podcast to a full-fledged digital media company and business blog, providing valuable support for entrepreneurs at all stages of their journey.

Join hosts Luis and Cyndi Cortes as they sit down with entrepreneurs to discuss their strategies and insights for success.

Our motto is simple: stay humble, hustle hard!
