WET033 – What is your side hustle?

In this Solocast, Erik Marshall talks about side hustles, or diversification of income for academics and writers. In many cases, one income is not enough, and having only one source of income ties you to a the whims of a particular career, which can be a dangerous situation. In the case of adjuncts, if all you have is an adjunct position, then you’re entire wellbeing can be decided by one person, or by the vagaries of student enrollment, politics, prejudice or any number of things that are outside of your control. 

I talk about my side hustles, tutoring and writing, and how I want to build writing into a stronger source of income. This diversification gives me the power to say “No” to potential obligations that I might have said “yes” to in the past.
