Redefining Hustle: Pursuing Success as a Christian Woman

Redefining Hustle: Pursuing Success as a Christian Woman

As an ambitious Christian woman, do you ever feel like you’ve had success yet something is still missing? Ever wonder if it’s possible to be ambitious & still let God lead? Does “hustle” fuel your adrenaline, but you’re tired of both the world’s frantic definition of hustle and the so-called “anti-hustle” movement? Here’s the thing, friend. The issue isn’t the hustle itself…the issue is how we define and pursue it. And success for Kingdom impact doesn’t require buying into either of those extremes. Instead, we can emulate how Jesus worked: with purpose, intention, a sense of timing and always seeking His Father’s direction. In other words, we can redefine hustle and pursue success with God as CEO. And that’s what this show is here to help you do! Welcome to Redefining Hustle: Pursuing Success as a Christian Woman, where each focused 15-minute episode connects Biblical truth to business with practical application.

Have you ever been fired from a job?


Even when it leads to something so much better, the pain lingers a bit, doesn’t it? 


But then you realize it’s all in God’s hands, even if it doesn’t look the way you would have planned it.


Ten years ago on November 12, I was fired from my corporate sales job. Within in just a few days, I went from award-winner to fired. And that set me on the trajectory to find Jesus and follow His direct...

Redefining hustle means emulating Jesus as we work: with intention, purpose, a sense of timing and seeking His Father’s instruction through…you guessed it: prayer! If Jesus, who knew everything from start to finish, still felt the need to commune with His Father, so do we. 


Sometimes we get so busy in the doing of our business that we forget about the being in our business. And that BEING means BEING with the Lord: ongoing prayer...

As we finish up the 5 principles for redefining hustle today, I’ve got a question for you:


Are you stealing the spotlight?


Or are you covering up your light because you’re afraid to let it shine?


Friend, you are a city on a hill, reflecting Christ’s light in your business, and shining it is how others see His good works through you. 


But even more importantly:

Shining your light is not about you. It’s about giving God the g...

NEW trailer: This podcast is getting a makeover!
Hey friend, as you walk out God’s assignment in your work, do you ever feel like:
– You’ve had success yet something is still missing.
– You wonder if it’s possible to be ambitious and let God lead at the same time, because you’ve been taught “if it is to be, it’s up to me.”
– The “hustle” fuels your adrenaline, but you want to ditch the overachievement and pursue success with clarit...

FOMO. It’s a state we’re all familiar with, right? It’s even a foundational marketing principle. Because the fear of missing out is central to our human desire to belong, to be part of “something bigger,” and most especially, for us ambitious women in business, central to our desire to make an impact with the audience we seek to serve. 


But what if instead of FOMO, we turned to FOCUS? As in:

What is it about being ambitious women of faith that we feel the need to white knuckle our work and be self-reliant? (or is it just me?)


You know what it’s like: one minute you’re putting feet to your faith and following God’s direction, and the next you’re trying to multiply your actions in your own strength (it’s ok, you’re not alone).


This week on The Hustle with H.E.A.R.T. podcast, I’m talking about the 3rd principle to red...

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. once said “Faith is taking that first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase.”   And, friend, we don’t need to see the whole staircase if we already know Who has written our story! Faith, then, is having that belief, while trust is taking the step and putting that belief in action.   Faith is believing God is God and we are not. Trust is obeying his instructions, knowing that He will fulfill...

After last week's episode about resilience, you may be thinking, "Ok, got it - stick to it! I've got this...I've got confidence!"    And that's awesome...still, let's slow the roll for a minute.    The world sees confidence as “a feeling of self assurance, arising from an appreciation of one's own abilities or qualities.”    Hmmm…is it just me, or does that sound a bit like pride?

You've probably read this somewhere:    God is for you, not against you.

When you were a kid, did you ever hear your mom or grandma or some other motherly figure in your life tell you not to leave the house without a hat in the winter?   And do you remember rolling your eyes 🙄?

    The Piketon Massacre

    The most notorious mass murder in Ohio’s history happened on the night of April 21, 2016 in rural Pike County. Four crime scenes, thirty-two gunshot wounds, eight members of the Rhoden family left dead in their homes. Two years later a local family of four, the Wagners, are arrested and charged with the crimes. As the Wagners await four back-to-back capital murder trials, the KT Studios team revisits Pike County to examine: crime-scene forensics, upcoming legal proceedings, and the ties that bind the victims and the accused. As events unfold and new crimes are uncovered, what will it mean for all involved? What will it mean for Pike County?
