From a creative director who rebuilds motorcycles to an executive assistant who won a deal on 'Shark Tank' for his elf business (yes, you read that right)
Read the full list of creatives with amazing side hustles in Ad Age, from Keira Wingate.
Upahar Rana | creative director at Assembly
Rana and her best friend Marian Miranda launched Half Hippy, an all-natural skincare brand, in 2016. The shop currently sells deodorant—its top seller—as well as restorative face oil and multi-use muscle and vapor rub.
Prices range from $6 to $48, depending on size. The products can be bought at select stores throughout the country and online. On average, the pair sells anywhere from 75 to 150 products a month, including wholesale.
Right now the business “doesn’t really sustain our lifestyles, that’s why we have full-time jobs,” Rana said, adding that it is “really beautiful to see this community of people that even send the most beautiful notes and reviews. It’s really gratifying.”
