I see you, educators. You went to college, graduate school, built an incredible career working at institutions of higher learning, supporting students, nurturing your colleagues, and maybe doing some committee work here and there. PHEW!
But your heart has been telling you for years now that you have other talents and skills the world should experience. Like, maybe in a Side Hustle!
Still, working at a college campus is a busy gig, and who has the damn time? YOU DO. We all have the time. And that’s why I’m here.
Hey there, my name is Kris McPeak, and I help career professionals in higher education create time for their side hustle so they don’t waste their potential. Once you adopt the “Elevate Your 8" philosophy and set some goals, you, your day job, AND your side hustle are going to be unstoppable.
So if you’ve got a calling outside your college campus, then sit down, relax, and tune in to this show, because YOU’VE Got Side Hustle!
Episode 121: 6 Ways to Mentally Separate Your Day Job from Your Side Hustle

It’s not hard work to do this - but you do have to work hard. It’s important to be intentional and thoughtful about your approach - but these six tips will be helpful to as you find clarity with this process.
Meanwhile, if you have not started a side hustle just yet, I have a great quiz that will help you determine the best direction to go. Grab this up today and get started on your new business!

HEY! The "Got Side Hustle" Show Is HERE! Episode 120 with Leslie Levito of etcetera
(what IS the best Side Hustle for you, BTW? Click here to find out!)
Well, friends, here we are! The new show is launching and I am SO friggin' excited! It's been great fun to work with my coach and make the decision to niche down a bit and start talking to career professionals in higher education about creating time to work on their side hustles.
And the result is "The Got Side Hustle Show." Still the same host - me, Kris McPeak - and still a huge focus on productivity and time management. "Elevate Your 8" really hasn't gone anywhere - it's still the basis for everything I teach and role model and it will be shared often with the new format.
But I really wanted to start talking to the people that I'm best designed to support, and that's folks like me who work in higher education. In that vein, not all the guests will be higher education practitioners, but we can all learn from everyone who has ever held a full-time job AND a side hustle.
If you haven't listened to the BONUS episode from February 22nd, please go check that out because it really digs into why I wanted to shift my show around.
And now - here's my FIRST guest!
