Hustlin’ to be the Best


Ken Stiggers

Brother Hustle: "Welcome to the first meeting of the 2015 Compensatory Investment Request Support Group. We can report that 2014 proved to be a good year despite nationwide conflicts between citizens and police, foreign policy and terrorism, posting selfies on Facebook and maintaining privacy, the will of politicians and the needs of the people.

"This year, I'm happy to report some success stories of individuals who attended Compensatory Investment Request Support Group meetings, participated in entrepreneurial workshops and applied Compensatory Investment Request techniques to secure funding.

"Our first success story is Sister Lady Dime Piece. This year, she will launch her mobile hair salon and cosmetology business called Sister, Lady Dime Piece's Traveling Hair and Make-Up Mobile. As graduate of the 'Brother Hustlenomics Entrepreneur Workshop,' she acquired her business and operating licenses, developed a marketing plan and created a mobile computer application with Aunt Tee Tee, our computer guru. Indeed, Sister, Lady Dime Piece is truly a shining example for this group.

"Dee Jay Itch Got To Scratch is the other success story. Last year, he earned the title of 'Phoenix.' This formerly unemployed deejay rose out of the ashes of obscurity into a successful project management career. As a graduate of Aunt Tee Tee's 'Project Hustle-Management Class,' he oversees a consortium called 'Old School, R&B, Techno, Rock, Country Western, Hip-Hop and Gospel Dee Jays.' Currently, he seeks sponsors for his Internet music program.

"The Compensatory Investment Request Support Group hopes to produce more success stories in 2015. Come join us."
