Our Mission

The Hustle Made Me Do It! is a podcast and media company based in Nashville, TN, founded by Luis Cortes and Cyndi Cortes after identifying a dire need among young entrepreneurs. Luis, an entrepreneur and immigrant from Mexico, and Cyndi, a former professor and first-generation American, realized that the support for start-ups in the minority community was limited. With their combined business and academic experience, they decided to launch a brand that would cater to this demographic and empower all up-and-coming entrepreneurs.

Our goal at THHMDI is to provide professionals, dreamers and hustlers with a platform to share their unique stories and build a network of like-minded peers. Podcast episodes highlight both young business owners and professional powerhouses, ranging in topics from business and finance, to personal and professional development. Since its launch in 2017, THMMDI has grown from a podcast to a digital media company and business blog providing support for entrepreneurs in any stage of their business. 

Join hosts Luis and Cyndi Cortes as they sit down with entrepreneurs of all backgrounds and walks of life to share strategies and insights for success!

Stay humble, hustle hard!
