The Making of a Maverick
At Hustle 2.0, we don’t refer to ourselves as inmates, offenders, felons, convicts, criminals, murderers, thugs, losers, the worst of the worst, low-lives, or any such nonsense. We are not defined by the shackles placed upon us. None of us want to be known just for the worst thing we’ve done. We call ourselves Mavericks.
NOUN: An independent thinker who refuses to conform to the accepted views on a subject.
