Nick Loper has been featured on the New York Times, Fortune, Entrepreneur, and more.
I interview Nick Loper, the chief side hustler of Side Hustle Nation, and voice of the podcast The Side Hustle Show. I was excited to talk to Nick and hear more about how he turned his side hustle into a full-time business.
In this episode, we talk about how Nick got started with a shoe affiliate site on the side that eventually allowed him to quit his day job.
Nick shares with us how he got started and a few things you can do to get started on your side hustle by this week.
We talk about interesting side hustles that Nick heard about recently.
I answer these questions:
- My choices for images. Read more here.
- Hosting companies that I like. (Affiliate links…so I get a commission if you sign up. Thank you!)
- Site Ground Hosting: My favorite hosting company right now because of the excellent service. You can me chatting or speaking with a real tech support person extremely quickly. I’m usually able to get answers in a chat in about 10-20 seconds. And this is a REAL, admin that can actually help you. (Some other companies have you talk to a customer support rep that just follows a script. If anything needs to be done on the server, then the CSR has to open a ticket for the actual tech support.) It’s more expensive, but it’s totally worth it for the high level of support.
- MDD Hosting: It’s a smaller company with the same level of service as Site Ground. I’ve been able to chat or speak with people just as fast. They don’t have as many hosting options and flexibility since MDD is a smaller company. It’s a tad cheaper than Site Ground in most cases.
- Bluehost: It’s a really popular company, but the customer support may or may not be good. They’re recommended by a lot of influencers and have been for years. Some of the influencers even publicly admitted that the customer support got worse. I’d avoid Bluehost right now, but I know some people will want to use them, hence, my affiliate link.
- How do I find a niche?
