What is Hustle + Gather? And are we twins? Answering all the questions we get asked the most.

Welcome to the Hustle + Gather Podcast! On each episode, we’re going to interview a guest about their entrepreneurial journey and the challenges they’ve faced. And then we’ll follow it up next week with our Conversations with Sisters, unpacking what the guest’s message meant to us.  But on this episode, we wanted to start with a little bit about us – are we married? how do we work together? how many are on our team?

We hope you’ll enjoy, and be sure to check out the next episode as well, with motivational speaker and burnout expert Rachel Sheerin!

Hustle + Gather Podcast Episode 1


Courtney: Welcome to Hustle & Gather, a podcast about inspiring the everyday entrepreneur to take the leap. I’m Courtney.

Dana: And I’m Dana.

Courtney: And we’re two sisters who love business. On this show we talk about the ups and downs of the hustle and the reward at the end of the journey.

Dana: And we know the challenges that come with starting a business between operating our wedding venue, doing speaking, and consulting and starting our luxury wedding planning company. We wake up and hustle every day.

Courtney: But we love what we do. And today is our very first “Conversations with Sisters”. Our goal is for you to get to know us and understand the why behind the podcast a little bit better.

Dana: We get asked all the time. What is Hustle & Gather.

Courtney: Yeah, it’s kind of like an existential answer. I feel like what is Hustle & Gather really?

Dana: Hustle & Gather started as a creative outlet for me and Courtney back in 2019. And I would love to say it’s because we were bored and we were in a great place with business, but that actually is not the truth at all. It was a really hard business year for us. Our business was still like all over the place.

We were still trying to figure out really what we were doing, but we just knew that we loved talking to people about business, and we really wanted to do more for others that want it to be entrepreneurs. So, we started Hustle & Gather.
