KNOW THY SELF
We are hustlers. Sharp motivated people that innovate fast, create businesses and scale for massive growth opportunities. We seek our own path in life, not waiting for someone to hand it to us... and we know it will take hard work to go beyond average to attain our ambitious dreams!
We embrace zen. As a way of living a careful balancing act of living and being mindful of the present moment with compassion for ourselves and others. We strive for a calm mind with insightful clarity, so that we may remain in the creative productive flow.
we Welcome you... Zen HustlerS
Components of a zen way of living are mindfulness to the present moment, compassion and kindness for the self and others, tuning into appreciation and thoughtfulness while increasing creativity, clarity and thus insights.
Living the hustle life is about pushing your limits for growth, typically around success in business. You are seeking an extraordinary life of your dreams based on hard work and tenacity of your passions and purpose here.
We're seeking to have it all in this life... personal success, freedom, growing wealth, true connections and finding our greatest self. We know we need to embrace real gratitude to truly enjoy it all and find balance on the edge!
MODERN BUSINESS TELLS US TO ALWAYS BE DOING MORE AND HARDER, SO WE SAY...
"NO THANK YOU"
BALANCE IS WHAT WE SEEK SO THAT WE CAN BE MORE PRODUCTIVE NOT SIMPLY WORKING HARDER!
The 'Hustle' can get lonely...
meet others in our community!

Meet the Founder
Zen Hustlers, conceived by Jared Brick, an award-winning multimedia marketing innovator, emerging thought leader and entrepreneur. Jared has been seeking new resources and a community around balancing the now popular 'hustle mindset' and also seeking more equilibrium in his life. Originally from Northern New Jersey, Jared learned to 'hustle' from a young age surrounded by a family of small business owners. He has since traveled the world to realize there are many ways to live a deeply fulfilling life... he is still figuring it out.
Zen Hustlers was born out of this desire for more balance on the edge.
Jared holds MBA in Sustainable Management from Presidio Graduate School and started Brick House Media Co (2013), a custom multimedia marketing company based in the SF Bay Area. He is proud the father of two awesome high energy young boys, married to a fun Brit woman and recently moved to the Santa Cruz coast to embrace a more zen lifestyle.
