I've been a HUGE fan of Nick Loper's for a couple of years. He's my kind of guy--smart, humble, curious and really nice! He hosts The Side Hustle Show: Business Ideas for Part-Time Entrepreneurs--a podcast that delivers the kind of info I love: Real-life examples of the creative ways people from all walks of life are using their skills and talents to launch part-time (and even full-time) entrepreneurial ventures.
For the first post of my new blog series--Smart Conversations about Smart Writing--I knew I wanted to talk with Nick about why writing well is such an important part of building successful businesses. One reason is because he's interviewed SO many entrepreneurs and has heard their stories about how they're promoting themselves, creating courses, writing books, etc. The other reason is that I wanted to hear how he views writing when it comes to building his own business.
In the infographic below, you can read about our conversation and also learn about a smart writing hack Nick uses to create headlines. (He's really good at writing headlines, so you don't want to miss it!) Additionally, he recommended the following episodes of his podcasts for those of you who are interested in hearing how others are earning money with their writing skills:
There's TONS of great info in these podcasts. So I encourage you to listen to them and take notes! Nick also provides fantastic show notes for each of his podcasts that summarize what was discussed and that provide links to websites, books, resources, etc. mentioned during the interview.
Now--on to MY interview with NICK!
