100 Interviews with 100 Major Influencers
I’ve been to 25 countries on 6 continents and believe a passport full of stamps is way better than a garage full of stuff. - Nick Loper
Currently, we have interviewed about 65 major influencers from around the world on this podcast series and today’s guest, I am happy to announce is one of the top business podcasters raking in at #7 on Apple Podcasts for Entrepreneurship! Nick Loper is the founder and host of The Side Hustle Show a podcast for part-time entrepreneurs who are looking for business ideas, actionable tips to start a business, and killer strategies on how to turn their side hustle dreams into a growing business. They cover all aspects of starting a business and making money online and offline. The topics include passive income ideas, niche sites, self publishing, software and app development, and many more.
Today on the show, we get into the nitty-gritty of starting and building a podcast and business part-time. Entrepreneurs talk all the time about ‘the hustle’! Working hard to make things happen in your business and make your dreams come true. What we don’t talk about as often as we should is the art of building a business slowly. Many entrepreneurs have done this successfully and have ended up building incredibly successful businesses. The fact is, that not everyone can go all in with a new business. There are a lot of people that have their jobs and lives that come first, and a business has to be built on the side of these priorities. Nick talks directly to people about this on his podcast.
Throughout the show, Nick and I really talk a lot about how he has built a successful side hustle business and making a podcast profitable. He has some incredible insight on what is working and what is not working for podcasting today. Nick is transparent enough to share his financial numbers and how many listeners he has. He gives thorough advice on creating a successful business and a successful podcast. It is a must listen if you are thinking about or have started your own podcast.
