Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi is a serious boss lady.
She may have started out as the drunken joke on MTV’s The Jersey Shore you loved to watch (and yet, couldn’t admit to your friends that you were watching). But now Snooks, or Nicole as she goes by now, has turned herself into a little entrepreneur — and a good one at that.
Since leaving The Jersey Shore, Nicole went on to successfully star in her own spin-off show with best friend Jenni Farley, Snooki & JWOWW, for four seasons. The pair then moved on to launch their own web series, Moms With Attitude, on YouTube’s Awestruck Channel.
She’s also written five books, to varying success, with her most recent book, Strong is the New Sexy, published last year.
Her other side ventures include her podcast Naturally Nicole, which is nearing it’s 100th episode; her own skin care line; and her online store The Snooki Shop, which sells clothing and jewelry.
Say what you want about the girl, but this momma has got some serious hustle. She’s willing to try anything and everything and she never let’s a little failure keep her down. There’s something to be said for a woman who is willing to embarrass herself on the reg just to earn a little respect.
Her newest show Nicole and Jionni’s Shore Flip, which co-stars her hubbie, airs on the fyi, channel and has been picked up for nine episodes.
