I’m excited to welcome New York Times bestselling author and popular YouTuber Jefferson Bethke back to the show. This time around we discuss his book To Hell with the Hustle, where he invites readers to resist our hustle culture and embrace a life marked with the slow pace modeled by Jesus.
About the Book: Our culture makes constant demands of us: Do more. Accomplish more. Buy more. Post more. Be more.
In following these demands, we have indeed become more: More anxious. More tired. More hurt. More depressed. More frantic.
What we are doing isn’t working!
In a society where hustle is the expectation, busyness is the norm and information is king, we have forgotten the fundamentals that make us human, anchor our lives, and provide meaning.
Jefferson Bethke, New York Times bestselling author and popular YouTuber, has lived the hustle and knows we need to stop doing and start becoming.
After reading this book, you will discover:
How to proactively set boundaries in your life
How to get comfortable with obscurity
The best way to push back against the demands of contemporary life
The importance of embracing silence and solitude
How to handle the stressors that life throws at us
To Hell With the Hustle is for anyone who is
Feeling overwhelmed with the demands of work, family and community
Wanting to connect and spend time with their family.
Tired of being anxious, lonely, and burned out
Join Bethke as he discovers that the very things the world teaches us to avoid at all costs–silence, obscurity, solitude, and vulnerability–are the very things that can give us the meaning, and the richness we are truly looking for.

I know you’re going to enjoy this deep dive with author and branding expert Jamie Mustard. We explore his powerful story of coming out of abject poverty and learning challenges to graduating from the London School of Economics.
Jamie always felt hidden and overlooked in his youth, which allowed him to build a keen sense of observation while he tried to figure out how to successfully navigate his shifting environments. Combining his keen observation skills with the modeling and systems he learned in economics, he developed a repeatable process that will help you identify the iconic elements that will make your brand, product, talk, company, and anything else imaginable both timeless and memorable.
Don’t miss your chance to sit at the feet of the master and learn this superpower. It will change the way you view your audience . . . and the entire world around you.
About the Book: With the rise of digital media and advertising, a constant barrage of information makes it nearly impossible to be seen and heard. In The Iconist, branding and design strategist Jamie Mustard shows you how individuals, organizations, and brands can break through the noise.
The secret to standing out lies in creating content that the desired audience will “lock” onto and remember with little effort—simple, bold ideas that can be immediately understood. The Iconist reveals a set of primal laws in human society that explain why some things stand out and endure in the mind, while others are rejected. Blending relevant examples from history and pop culture with cutting-edge psychology, Mustard explores why certain things stick and others fade from memory—and gives you an owner’s manual to make any idea, product, or service stand out and be remembered. Forget relying on luck or trial-and-error: Mastering this process will enable you, no matter your field or endeavor, to confidently craft messages that resonate with your target audience through simple, fool-proof methods.
For businesses, marketers, teachers, advertisers, artists—from thought leaders to anyone trying to write a resume—The Iconist shows how to grab and hold attention. Fair warning, though: This book will change the way you view your audience . . . and the entire world around you.
About the Author: Jamie Mustard is a strategic multi-media consultant and Iconist. His passion is to teach the science and “art of obviousness,” helping professionals, change agents, artists, and businesses confidently and at will make their messages, brands and ideas stand out to their desired audiences. A graduate of the London School of Economics, Jamie’s work is an explanation of the “economics of attention,” based on the primal laws of human perception called Blocks. He has spoken, educated, and inspired others with his work prolifically, including TED at the creative giant, Wieden and Kennedy. Jamie’s Iconist work has spanned some of the world’s leading companies, artists, and the globe. Growing up in severe poverty in inner city Los Angeles, Jamie overcame obstacles to eventually codify a system of primal laws that can now help us all.

About the Book: Every Christian must read this shocking account of the Church’s history. The pages of church history are marked by countless horrors committed against the Jewish people.
From the first persecutions of the Jews in the fourth century to the horrors of the Holocaust, from Israel-bashing in today’s press to anti-Semitism spouted from the pulpit, this painful book tells the tragic story that every Christian must-read.
In a freshly updated and expanded edition of this pivotal work, Dr. Michael Brown exposes the faulty theological roots that opened the door to anti-Semitism in Church history, explaining why well-meaning believers so often fall into the trap of hate… and showing how you can bring an end to the cycle of violence.
This generation can make a difference. Now is the time for a change! Discover the important role you play in helping to shape a Church that will bless Israel rather than curse Israel.
About the Author: Michael L. Brown, PhD, is founder and president of AskDrBrown Ministries and president of FIRE School of Ministry.

About Scott McNamara: 5 years after beating addiction, Scott launched into full-time Evangelism at Causeway Coast Vineyard Church.
Scott took to the streets and as he shared the Gospel, the Holy Spirit poured out His power. Jesus At The Door was born. Thousands have since come to Christ through this simple gospel-driven model.
Criminals, ex-cons, drug dealers, gang leaders and notoriously violent men and women have found a family in Scott and Jaye’s new believers’ group, The GodSquad. Over 300 of these ‘strangers from the street’ have settled in a Church family.
"Stranger Things doesn’t intentionally retell the gospel story. But the fact that the story has so many points of analogy to the saga of Jesus and his followers against the powers of darkness isn’t coincidental."
