Name: Rachel Morrison
Location: Birmingham, Alabama
“Real Job”: Stay at home Mom/Aunt
Side Hustle: (Very) amateur baker
How long: Two years
Where: At home, during naptime
Best part: Pulling a super amazing loaf out of the oven
Worst part: Pulling a failed loaf out of the oven when it has taken days to make
Your greatest supporter: My child Rhodes, who loves bread
Your inspiration: My husband who started my obsession with our sourdough starter. If he wasn’t working around the clock in his residency, he’d be my co-baker. He is that when he gets the opportunity.
Side Hustle Dreams:
Right now I just bake for my own self growth and sanity. The feeding, mixing, kneading, and baking that goes into bread gives me a sense of accomplishment and identity outside of my role as a mother. Each loaf teaches me something, and I love being able to constantly learn through doing.
If this randomly one day leads to something beyond that, I am open to it. Right now my side hustle is my selfish way to better myself and exercise my mind all while nourishing my friends and family.
