Nick Loper is a veteran affiliate marketer and a lifelong student in the game of business. His love affair with online marketing began in 2004, and he dreamed of someday making a living online. After several years of nights and weekends, the dream became reality in 2008. He’s an avid skier, softball player, and blogger, and most days you can find him working away while walking at his makeshift treadmill desk. As an expert in outsourcing, Nick published a book on working with virtual assistants in 2012. His entrepreneurial pursuits have been marked by both success and failure, but the perks of being his own boss have made it all worthwhile. In the future, he hopes to continue writing, to help as many people as possible (which he’s learned is a key to success), and not have to get a real job.
