Above is the newest episode of the original podcast Art of the Hustle, a series designed to help inspire entrepreneurs and fuel their life’s work. This represents the third episode of the series and features an in-depth conversation between the podcast’s host, multiplatinum producer and SuperPhone startup founder, Ryan Leslie, and special guest/fashion icon, Tommy Hilfiger.

During his conversation with Leslie, Hilfiger talks about everything from his early challenges with dyslexia to what it takes to overcome obstacles and build a $6.5 billion sales retail business/brand, and the philosophy behind his recent partnership with Gigi Hadid.

“I am always thinking what’s next. How do I stay relevant, how do I keep unique, how do I surprise the public, how do we do something that is really authentic and believable and cool and on the edge and true to the brand."

In June 2016, iHeartRadio and WeWork partnered to launch Work Radio, a first of its kind, 24/7 digital audio studio creating exclusive original content. Art of the Hustle, which began airing in October and has already featured conversations between Leslie and Expa Partner and former Co-Founder of Foursquare, Naveen Selvadurai, and Genius.com Co-Founder and President, Ilan Zechory, is one of the station’s most recent additions.  

“When you love what you do it’s not work. If you are really passionate about what you do it’s not work at all.”
