Spencer Porter is the founder of HustleTime, an ambitious project to help inspire entrepreneurs around the globe with tried and tested strategies to take their business and life to the next level.

Overcoming Obstacles

When I had the chance to speak to Spencer, I was inspired by his ability to overcome obstacles in his own life and how he really opened up and was vulnerable in our conversation. I have always believed that when the people I interview are able to be their true, authentic selfs that it allows the reader to really connect with the steps they took to build their ventures. His mother passing passed away from cancer when Spencer was just ten-months- old and he described to me some of the extreme challenges that he faced overcoming this obstacle — His this as tool to coach the people that he surrounds himself with to overcome even the toughest obstacles and it was a major inspiration in the creation of HustleTime to inspire those around the world to push the boundaries in their own unique ways.

Looking for greatness in others

Spencer says he always looks for the great in others and seeks to develop an understanding of how he can most affectively help them achieve their dreams — Spencer lives a purpose driven life creating connections, constantly improving himself and impacting others lives by ‘being alive’. His goal with HustleTime was the antithesis start of his mission to improve lives of others and grow not only his business connections but also his friendships.

“Social Media isn’t just for selfies, it’s for helping others truly live their life “

Social Media as an enabler for positive connection

One of the things I really enjoyed in my conversation with Spencer is how he saw social media as a powerful enabler to reach people around the world that we would have never been able to contact before. Just as his project touches contributors and readers from around the world, so does his personal engagement strategy online.
