The Grand Hustle Empire is always expanding so therefore we needed to add a very talented, highly skilled executive to our team. It doesn’t matter if you got your hustle at Harvard or the hood, The Grand Hustle is about how you handle business and what you can do for the brand so I wanted to create a show that offers an equal playing field.
