In the world of entrepreneurship, those who hustle the most are often the ones that succeed the furthest as well.

As a slick online marketer, Brian hustled his way into the music industry by thinking out of the box to get in front of major music corporation executives. As a result of all his efforts, Brian has now worked with established and upcoming musicians through his company Future Star by providing digital marketing and talent management services.

Sometimes all it takes is one incident for people to wake up and change their ways. This was the case for Chad Mureta, a former real estate developer who was in the market during the housing bubble crash.

While laying in his hospital bed with hundreds of thousands in debt, a friend introduced him to the world of apps. That moment spurred Chad to borrow money from his family to develop his first app which turned out to be a success.
