Artists aren’t selling Tupperware. The idea of a side hustle usually revolves around some thing that you do in your time away from work that can make you some easy cash. The popular conversation leans more toward get-rich schemes and retirement before you’re 40, but the reality of productive side hustles are more about creative outlets that make sense because of what is already central to the individual; successful side hustles are usually commonsense when you know the artist. And none of this success is necessarily about the money it brings in.
This week, Ryan, Garreth and Cody sit down with physical therapist/rapper/spoken word artist Zach Crump to talk about music, relationships, creativity in the sciences and more. As a Doctor of Physical Therapy, Zach is involved with helping patients learn to walk again and regain mobility after terrible accidents or health complications. His daily life is centered on the relationships and conversations he has with coworkers, patients and members of his community. It only makes sense that his side hustle would be as well.
