One of the ways I made extra money to pay off debt was to become an Adjunct Instructor/Professor. I taught as an adjunct for 4 years took a 3 year break and I just started teaching again. My initial thought was to open up the window to change careers in the future. When I was in graduate school I realized that a lot of my teachers were business owners (with PhDs), full-time accountants, and PhD candidates so that I knew I could teach at the college level one day.
I haven’t talked about my student loans on here yet but there’s no time like the present. Last August, I decided that I wanted to pay off my student loans in the next 3 years but as I started to help my son with his college applications and scholarship search, I decided to push back my start date until he left for college. I wanted to focus on helping him find scholarships and I wasn’t sure I would be able to do that if I was in full on hustle mode, so starting in September, it’s on!!!
