Publisher's Summary

In Hustle Believe Receive, Sarah Centrella, author of the internationally popular blog Thoughts.Stories.Life., proves that anyone, no matter where they start from, can change their life, achieve success, and live their dream.

As a single mom living on food stamps, Sarah completely changed her life of poverty to enable her to live her dream in just 18 months. Sarah discovered the tools to change her life after her husband abandoned her and their three small children in 2008. Her story has impacted hundreds of thousands worldwide through her simple eight-step plan for achieving success known as the #HBRMethod.

The book features 51 inspiring stories of people who believe in Sarah's message, each of whom she personally interviewed for this book. They include: NFL star running back Jonathan Stewart; NBA power forward Anthony Tolliver; famed artist Victor Matthews; best-selling author Laura Munson; middleweight world boxing champion Daniel Jacobs; CEO Ryan Blair; and Morgan Stanley executive director Kimberley Hatchett, among many others. Hustle Believe Receive shows how these stories are connected and how Sarah, a single mom from Oregon, manages to bring them all together in the most unlikely way.

Hustle Believe Receive contains true tales of how real people are living the impossible. This book answers the question "how did they do that?" and, more importantly, shows how you can, too.

#Hashtag use really detracts from the message

I consider myself to be a big fan and user of social media, but an audiobook is just not the place for it. The unending repetition of the word "hashtag" quickly begins to evoke a "nails on chalkboard" response each time it's mentioned. And it's mentioned A LOT. It would be amusing to learn how many times the word is read in this book.

The message may be a good one, but there just is no place in this audiobook for excessively using "hashtag."

I've never written a negative review, and the criticism is on this one issue alone, but I would hope that the author or Audible (or whomever) might get the message and strip out the hashtag references. It would create an altogether different - and markedly better - experience.

HASHTAG use annoying

This story would have been much easier to listen to without all the hash tag references in almost every other sentence. I couldn't finish it.

HASH TAG, HASH TAG, HASH TAG

This book may have great content but I had to stop listening after 30 minutes because of the incessant use of the word HASH TAG. I have over 400 books in my Audible library and have never written a review but this book was so annoying I had to voice my opinion. The narrator says the word HASH TAG at least 100 times in first 30 minutes.

#Hashtag Overload

I was so excited to read this book after hearing the author speak in person, and I was a tad disappointed when I started listening to the book as I just couldn’t get passed all the #Hastag remarks... I felt like the phase and and points couldn’t be captured because she kept saying Hashtag this and hashtag that. After about 2 hours I just had to shut it down and say this book isn’t for me, I wish I could hear the story without that remark to just hear her story.

#hashtagsucksforaudio

this book does not work well on audio. her hashtag references need to be removed. there are soooooo many and they are so frequenly interspersed it's impossible to listen to and enjoy. super annoying and distracting from any good points she might be making. also, I'm not a sports fan so found all the testimonials and examples kinda meh.

Solid tips for ANYONES Hustle!

I did enjoy this book, as the Info that was shared CAN be replicated. However... the author says/uses “Hashtag” at least 500 times in this book, when it’s not necessary, and I found this to be distracting, VERY distracting at times; but if you can tune-out the repetitiveness of “#”, then be sure to get this book, as there are stories that most can relate to, and again, the tips are solid info!

Fantastic stories but unbearable to listen to.

I hate the fact that I’m leaving a negative review on here. This review is a reflection on the audiobook, not the author.

The stories are pretty amazing but the excessive use of #hashtag every sentence makes it an unbearable listen.
I didn’t finish the book.

The use of hashtags for social media is useful but not in a book. I understand that the author wants the community to use her hashtags but it’s really grating on the reader/listener.

I’m looks by forward to the next book but please no more hashtags.

Again, I’m saddened to leave this kind of review as I’m a fan of her work but if things are to be improved, it needs to be said.

Please edit this book.

Unbearable To Listen to ###

The use of the word hashtag literally every seventh sentence was torturous. A poor product that's why it's free.

HASHTAG distracting!!!

Reader voice lovely and clear, not annoying. But the constant exclamation of “HASHTAG” is unnecessary and distracting from the storyline in progress. Probably reads better on paper, but no thought was made for a listening audience to remove this - at some points it’s in every sentence. Love the point of the book, but quite antagonised by the HASHTAG!!!

A #Hashtag drinking game

It genuinely sounds as if the author has a fascinating story to tell , and I would have loved to hear it.

Except I was completely distracted by the number of #hashtags being read out constantly and repeatedly, I couldn't finish it. As a self help drinking game I would be under the table after the 1st chapter. These might work in an actual book not and audio book.

Shame.

#annoying

This book seems to have gems in it but as all the other reviews have said there is such an overuse of hashtags, I'm struggling to get past Chapter 3.

Maybe best get the book, don't get this audio version.

Compelled to change!!

For any person in particular woman, wanting to motivate themselves to get out of a pit. this is the one. inspirational, enjoyable stories, a lyl bit of unexpected explicit language, but an on point honest expression to how she felt about lifes situations faced in the past, which i totally could relate to lol!! not your average dainty listen but i loved it & highly reccomend. A audio you can listen to over and over again.
