Nick Laparra is a consultant, an entrepreneur, and the founder of Let’s Give A Damn—a platform committed to championing people who give a damn and creating resources for people who want to give more damns. He has spent the last 21 years deeply involved in humanitarian and social impact work in over 30 countries around the world. Nick primarily grew up in Guatemala. His dad is a refugee and immigrant from Guatemala.
Nick is currently working on his first book, Damn Good People: Stories Of People Who Give A Damn & Steps For How To Become One. He is a minimalist and a self-expirementer that has lived out of a backpack and a duffel bag for the last two years.
When Nick is not working on his latest project, you’ll probably find him smoking a cigar, drinking coffee, and reading a great book. He currently lives in Nashville with his wife (Becky) and three children (Solace, Belle, and Roman).
