In this exciting episode, our very special guest is Nick Loper, best-selling author and award-winning podcaster and blogger at SideHustleNation.com. Nick started his entrepreneurial journey by selling candy to his fellow Boy Scouts at summer camp and eventually painting houses in college at the University of Washington. After graduation, he started side hustling in earnest. Some small-scale experiments in online advertising soon turned into a full-fledged comparison shopping site for footwear, which earned commission from Zappos, Amazon, and other online shoe sellers. Three years of nights and weekends later, he left his corporate gig to become a full-time entrepreneur. It was during this time that his obsession with different business models and creative ways to make extra money really began. In 2013, he started Side Hustle Nation and The Side Hustle Show podcast to begin spreading the gospel of this lower-risk brand of entrepreneurship. He is now on a mission to help people build their own income streams and amplify their earning power. Side Hustle Nation has been recognized by the Plutus Foundation as a 2-time winner of the Best Entrepreneurship Blog. The site is read by 1.5 million visitors a year, and 30,000 listeners tune into The Side Hustle Show each week. Tune in to this exciting episode of the Holistic Wealth Podcast with Keisha Blair, to get some amazing side hustle ideas to escape the rate race, and build financial freedom after COVID-19.
