Nick and Bryn Loper with Mike Riscica

For the past 2 years Nick Loper has been an amazing Mentor to me. We get together once a week on Google hangout to discuss all of our projects and everything we are working on. He has guided me through many challenges and helps me see all of my projects from a different perspective. This week when I was in San Fran I finally got have lunch with him for the first time in real life. Nick and his wife Bryn are having a baby boy in about a month. I love these people! I don’t know where I would be without this guy! #nickloper #sidehustleshow #sidehustlenation #entrepreneur #writer #genius #treadmilldesk #killingit
