OHustle & Motivate, I speak with self-made hustlers in the world of sports, entertainment, and more. The goal is to bring you entertaining, informative conversations that shed light on how these individuals operate.

Their mindset, how they started, what they’re up to now, and how they’re achieving their dreams.

The aim is to get your wheels turning.

Realizing that a simple mindset shift opens up a world of possibilities.  Because in the end, you can do anything you believe you can achieve.

This morning I sat down with Jacolby Gilliam, the founder of 9INE POINT Magazine, an athlete-driven sports media platform with the goal of inspiring athletes to achieve their version of greatness.

After tearing his ACL during his senior season, Jacolby decided to walk on at his dream school, the University of Oklahoma.

But the struggles didn’t end there.

Nevertheless, Jacolby has found a way to overcome every obstacle put in front of him. And his journey will teach you how you can do the same.
