Feeling trapped on a workaholic hamster wheel?

This episode of Startup Hustle dives deep into the entrepreneur's struggle for work-life balance and that elusive thing called happiness.

Join serial entrepreneur and travel addict Michael Motamedi as he discusses aligning your company goals with your desire to, you know, not die alone. We'll crack the code on the "happiness threshold" (it's not about that third yacht) and explore why fixing your water heater might be more fulfilling than you think. Plus, Matt finally admits he might have a delegation problem. (Spoiler alert: he does.)

This episode is for you if:

  • You’ve ever dreamt of quitting your job and living on a beach in the Philippines (turns out happiness might be cheaper than you think)
  • You struggle to define success without a Scrooge McDuck money bin
  • You're tired of feeling guilty about not working 24/7 (hint: Mr. Beast takes breaks, too)
  • You secretly believe AI can plan your next vacation (spoiler alert: Michael tried it with AI travel assistant GuideGeek)

Get ready to laugh, learn, and maybe re-evaluate your life plan. Because, let's face it, chasing happiness on a hamster wheel is exhausting.

Tune in and buckle up for a thought-provoking ride!
