1. You’re array of side hustles put my meagre attempts to shame! I’ve been doing some freelance social media consulting (which I know is lol considering my own social media presence is dismal). But I’m good at telling other people how to improve their SM, and apparently I really like it! I also want to expand my writing for freelance but I just genuinely don’t know how to go about it.

    We’ve already been to Nova Scotia this summer and we’re going away to Europe for two weeks in July. That trip will be here before we know it!

  2. It’s so true that teachers never tell that joke! As a teacher, the best I could ever do was (mostly) carve out July. Even then, I often had classes or something else.

    Like you, I typically had some kind of stipended leadership work. I also did adjunct professor work a few summers – but that was more work than it was worth, and I found it healthy to take at least a little time away from teaching. Teaching adults is draining in a different way, but it’s still draining.

    Good luck with your side hustles!

  3. Wow! Congrats on that freelance work. What you are pulling off is inspiring. I’m curious to hear how and why you are focusing on things other than money. I look forward to that post.

    Good luck changing grade levels and prepping for the kiddos. My position underwent a complete change this year as well. It’s the first year I don’t have to move rooms though, so I’m trying to look on the bright side:)

    Like PFI said, July is about the only hope for carving out some peace around here!

  4. That’s some pretty killer income diversification, Penny. Especially over the summer while you’re prepping three new courses.

    I’ve never been good at finding different income streams and went the other route, just leaning into my main gig. It’s riskier, for sure: I think those with multiple income streams will be in a much better position when the next recession hits.

    Best of luck this summer. I’d love to hear more about your freelancing, too!
