HUSTLE FILE #99: Sacha Pytka

NAME: Sacha Pytka

OCCUPATION: Sometimes fashion designer, sometimes travel blogger

LOCATION: Venice Beach

WHAT’S YOUR HUSTLE: Quite simply seeing the world and sharing it.

WHAT DOES YOUR HUSTLE MEAN TO YOU: I caught the travel bug young, traveling with my parents. Whether it was a month-long stay somewhere, a weekend getaway to Europe or a two-week tour around the world, no trip was considered unreasonable. This instilled a “why not?” sort of mentality in me—it’s part of who I am. I also find that the more I travel and the more people I meet, the more reasons I have to travel (more places to go back to, new friends to stay with!) The blog is more of a travel diary that I hope inspires other people to get out there too.

IF YOU COULD HAVE ONLY THREE TOOLS FOR YOUR HUSTLE, WHAT WOULD THEY BE: iPad (doubles as your boarding pass, in-flight entertainment, sound system for impromptu dance parties, among other things), Cameras (Canon G15 and GoPro), and a guide book to wherever I’m going.

A WORD OF ADVICE TO WANNABE HUSTLERS IN YOUR FIELD: Just go. Getting away doesn’t have to be planned. With all the low-cost airlines and travel sites nowadays, it’s easy to find deals on last-minute flights and hotels. And don’t forget about road trips! An unexpected 3-day weekend in a city you don’t know could be just as refreshing as that 2-week exotic getaway you’ve been saving up for.

Sacha’s blog: soyons-ouf.blogspot.com (“Soyons Ouf” is a play on words in French. ‘Ouf’ is french verlan (backwards) slang for ‘fou’-meaning crazy. “Soyons fou” is an old fashioned french saying- “Let’s be crazy.”)
