Nick Loper’s entrepreneurial journey began at an early age — selling candy to his fellow Boy Scouts at summer camp, and eventually painting houses in college at the University of Washington.
After graduation though, 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, Nick left his corporate gig to become a full-time entrepreneur.
It was during this time that Nick’s 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.
Through the blog and podcast, Nick has helped thousands of readers and listeners earn more money and start businesses of their own.
He lives in Livermore, California with his wife, two sons, and Mochi, The Side Hustle Shih Tzu.
