Since his teenage years, Bruckner has cut lawns
June 2, 2023
Physics teacher Mike Bruckner has cut lawns since his teenage years and continues to do so today as a second job.
“It pays for my kids’ activities and helps pay for the bills,” he said.
It is an active job and Bruckner appreciates the benefits of that.
“It keeps me healthy and in shape,” he said.
Unlike some teachers who have a second job or side hustle over the summer, Bruckner works much of the year cutting lawns.
“I can’t do it only in summer because the grass doesn’t stop growing until December,” he said.
Because his time is limited during the school year, sometimes he has to reject some potential clients.
“I had to turn down three people just last week,” he said.
His advice for anyone interested in starting a side hustle is to “go get it because no one’s going to give it to you.”
