HUDU is a better way to make money – it also happens to be a better way to get things done!

Have you ever been broke? Strapped for cash? Struggled to make ends meet?

If you answered yes, then join the club! Over half of all Americans are living paycheck to paycheck with less than a thousand dollars in the bank.

The way we “work” is broken, and HUDU has the solution.

“A better way to make money.

Now, we’re not looking to replace the 9–5, but rather break this cycle of “paycheck to paycheck” and never really being able to get ahead.

For many, the American Dream feels like just that, a dream, completely unattainable. HUDU is putting the American Dream back within reach for anyone who wants to chase it!

Enough rhetoric, let’s dive into what HUDU is and how we’re doing this.

Let’s start with the name, it comes from every time you’ve asked, “Hey, who do you know that can [do this thing I need done]…”

We’ve all been there, we’ve needed something done and had to go through this complicated and painful process of finding someone to take our money and do the project. With HUDU, simply list the project on the app and the real magic begins!

“A better way to get things done.”

Most Americans who live paycheck to paycheck have skills that could be monetized, but doing so is easier said than done… until now.

When you open the HUDU app, you’ll see countless projects in your area that people need done (see pictures below). Anyone looking to make extra money can simply find a project they can do well and go bid on it!

Wait, bid on it? Yup, you heard that correctly! Say goodbye to working by the hour. The harder you work and the faster you get the project done, the more time you have for yourself… and that’s a big part of why we built this platform.

The lowest bid doesn’t always win, the choice is yours! The LIST-er gets to choose the “Lowest Qualified Bidder” (don’t worry LIST-ers, our algorithm will give you guidance if needed). Price will obviously be a factor, but so will reviews, feedback ratings, experience, and certifications.

You’re probably wondering, “What types of projects will be on HUDU”? All you have to remember is this:

“If it’s legal, you can list it.”

During our HUDU v1.0 Beta Testing, our LIST-ers found DO-ers to provide high-quality wedding photography, tree removal, pet sitting, lawn care, home maintenance, sewing, car detailing, and even fixing a broken Macbook!

At the core of HUDU, our foundational belief is that people want three things:

  1. To be paid what they are worth
  2. To do things they enjoy
  3. To have time for the things that matter most to them

HUDU gives control to the DO-ers

For the first time in the history of working, you will have complete control over how much you make, the projects you do, and when you work.

That’s how HUDU is changing the way the world works… by giving YOU control. After all, thats what the American Dream is all about. 🇺🇸

We wanted this intro article to be a short and easy read, as a result, we skimmed over a lot of interesting details! Rest assured we will cover it all in future articles, so be sure to follow along on

Iowa Startup HUDU is Revolutionizing the Gig Economy: What is HUDU and Who is the Man Leading the Charge?

Amidst the rolling plains of Iowa, a quiet revolution is brewing, powered by a startup named HUDU. This fresh platform is not just transforming how we view the gig economy; it’s poised to redefine it entirely.

The Rise of HUDU

At its core, HUDU is more than just another gig platform—it’s a Doer Driven Ecosystem. This innovative approach centers the entire marketplace around those who get the work done: the DO-ers. While other platforms place emphasis on the listers or the gigs themselves, HUDU prioritizes those who drive the system, ensuring they’re given the tools, respect, and opportunities they deserve. After all, isn’t it the skilled photographer, the diligent auto-detailer, and the devoted lawn care professional who breathe life into any project?

It’s about bringing empowerment to the forefront. Where most platforms end with a simple connection, HUDU initiates a journey. From the moment a LIST-er posts a project—be it for home improvements, events, or even personal hobbies—a vibrant community of DO-ers springs into action, ready to bring their unique skills and passion to the fore.

The Man Behind the Vision

Enter Derreck Stratton: a dynamic leader, a proud Iowan, and the heart and soul behind HUDU. As a dedicated single father and an ambitious entrepreneur, Derreck knows a thing or two about juggling responsibilities and dreams. He’s always believed in the boundless potential of people when given the right opportunities. With HUDU, he aims to not only create these opportunities but also cultivate a community where everyone feels valued and empowered.

Creating a Movement, Not Just a Marketplace

HUDU isn’t just a service; it’s a movement. It’s about recognizing the value in every person’s skill set, be it traditionally recognized professions or those skills we’ve cultivated out of pure passion or necessity. By emphasizing the DO-er, HUDU sends a clear message: every project, no matter how small, is a testament to someone’s dedication, expertise, and drive.

Furthermore, in placing DO-ers at the center of its universe, HUDU fosters an environment of mutual respect and appreciation. It’s a space where work is not just about monetary transactions but about recognizing and celebrating expertise.

Join the HUDU Revolution

As HUDU gains momentum, it’s not just looking for users—it’s looking for believers, advocates, and pioneers. It’s seeking those who see the potential in a platform that puts people first and are ready to be a part of this transformative journey.

For those ready to be a part of a movement that values skills, passion, and dedication, HUDU beckons. Dive in and discover a world where every project becomes a collaboration, every DO-er finds their spotlight, and every dream finds its stage.
