Wonder: Success = Passion + Hustle

passionandhustle-printable-600x750“Good things happen to those who hustle.” ~Anaïs Nin

I’ve found that the number of good things that happen to me is directly proportional to how much I put myself out there. I connect, listen, learn, and share. I think of the hustle not so much as something I have to do, but just opening myself up to new possibilities. I love the hustle. When I get tired, I rest. When I need some solace, I retreat. And eventually I gather up my strength again, and I’m ready for the next new challenge. There is so much to do in the world—so many problems to solve, people to meet, places to go, and things to learn and discover. It’s all out there waiting for us so let’s get going.

About Christa Avampato

I make a living in business and I make a life as a writer, artist, and yogi. I use my business and storytelling skills to build a better world. My first novel, Emerson Page and Where the Light Enters, will be published in the Fall of 2017 by Thumbkin Prints, a children's and YA imprint of Possibilities Publishing Co. My creative career has stretched across Capitol Hill, Broadway theatre, education, nonprofit fundraising, health and wellness, and Fortune 500 companies in retail, media, and financial services. In every experience, I have used my sense of and respect for elegant design to develop meaningful products, services, program, and events to help people live happier, healthier lives. A recovering multi-tasker, I am a proud alum of UPenn (BA) and the Darden School at UVA (MBA). When not in front of my Mac, I’m on my yoga mat, walking my rescue dog, Phineas, traveling with a purpose, or practicing the high-art of people watching. I am proud to New York City my home, and I've been called the happiest New Yorker by friends and strangers alike. They're right. Follow my adventures on Twitter at and Instagram at
