Believe it or not, some of us (some of YOU) actually enjoy your day job! You're using all your skills and talents, you have an amazing supervisor and incredible vital work friends. You know you make a difference every day for your company. Am I right?
And yet, 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!
But you're a busy person, balancing your job, family, friends, and a lifestyle you like. So 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 create side hustles that complement their day job, supplement their income, and are manageable for their lifestyle. 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 beyond your 9 to 5, then sit down, relax, and tune in to this show, because YOU’VE Got Side Hustle!
The End of an Era
My side-hustling friends, I have come to the realization that it's time to say goodbye to the GOT SIDE HUSTLE show. As it started, "ELEVATE YOUR 8" and morphed into GOT SIDE HUSTLE, I have made some amazing friends and learned so much about myself and what it takes to build a business.
I have come to really understand productivity and time management and how I can make the best of every hour in every day.
I have created systems and procedures for working my side hustles in less than one hour a day.
And now it's time to do something different.
The show will still be around - and from time to time I will likely do a special episode when I really have something to say or I have a great guest...
But until then, the GOT SIDE HUSTLE show is always here for you.
THANK YOU for being part of this community and for subscribing to the show. I appreciate each and every one of you more than I can possibly say.
Everything I Ever Learned About My Side Hustle I Learned From EMPIRE RECORDS
HAPPY REX MANNING DAY! In honor of this amazing annual event, where we eat special brownies, pizza, and watch the delightful 1995 movie about teen angst, music, and making your dreams come true (sort of) - today's episode features Side Hustle Lessons derived from some of my FAVORITE moments in the film EMPIRE RECORDS.
From ABC.NET.AU: "
If you grew up in 1990s, you might be familiar with Empire Records.
The film, which followed a raggedy crowd of employees at an independent record store facing corporate takeover, resonated with those of us who listened to "alternative music" and wanted to telegraph our displeasure at The Man.
It was a very cool thing," Jenna Guillaume, a pop culture writer and the author of two works of young adult fiction, told me when we spoke about Empire Records, which was released 25 years ago.
"The characters were outsiders and you were an outsider if you loved it and that became a token of your cool status."
But the film was a disaster.
It was abandoned by its studio just weeks before its release.
While it gave early platforms to Liv Tyler and Renee Zellweger, critics mostly dumped on it and it barely made it to US screens, let alone Australian ones.
With a budget of more than $US10 million, it made just $US150,000 in cinemas."
Anyway - I have derived more than my fair share of enjoyment from this film and I'm thrilled today to be able to share some amazing lessons on rocking your side hustle and doing the passionate work you were made to do!!

Okay, so why does Self Care matter and why do we need it? One of my favorite quotes is from Eleanor Brown: "you cannot serve from an empty vessel." And that goes for your side hustle as much as it goes for your day job, work-life balance, and everything else. Without self-care, you cannot take care of anyone or anything - and that includes your side hustle.
This quick-and-dirty episode gets to the heart of self-care and why we need it. And I'd LOVE to hear from you on what kinds of self care YOU utilize.
See you next time!
