IF IT HAS TO DO WITH WORDS +
PEOPLE, I CAN HELP.
I don’t cook much (okay. at ALL), but I often
think in recipes. Here’s my most popular one so far:
THE ATTENTION GETTER
You’ve got the ideas, but you’re struggling to find the words. What you’ve got feels boring. Awkward. Not YOU.
You don’t want to have to hire help every time you need to communicate with your audience. You need someone to help you DIY with style.
Perfection. That’s exactly what I do.
I’m Nikki Elledge Brown. Mom of three, milspouse (to one), former park ranger, and professional word nerd. I started my business back in 2013 to help service-based business owners attract your dream clients by using your REAL voice online.
I spent nearly 2,000 hours teaching communication at the college level before switching my focus from serving inspiring students to serving inspiring entrepreneurs. Along the way, I coined the title “Communication Stylist” for myself, because it describes exactly what I do.
Much like a stylist-stylist helps her clients find the perfect wardrobe to showcase the very best versions of who they are, I help my clients find the perfect words to showcase the very best of what they have to offer.
Through my flagship program A Course About Copy, I offer super-practical, actionable guidance to help you write your site, attract your dream clients, and actually enjoy the process.
ADD IN A BONUS : THE FUN EXTRAS
WANNA KNOW MORE?
I’m a Texas girl who was lucky enough to spend the last 10 years calling Hawaii home.
I’m a writer, a speaker, a recovering perfectionist, former park ranger, milspouse, entrepreneur, mom of two funny, kind, feisty boys, and host of the Naptime Empires™ podcast, refreshingly honest conversations on the realities of parenthood + entrepreneurship.
I launched my own (naptime) empire in 2013, when my oldest was 18 months old — helping entrepreneurs attract their dream clients + customers, serving up tips + behind-the-scenes stories as The Communication Stylist® and creator of A Course About Copy®.
In the time since, said empire has generated well over a million dollars in revenue while enabling me to serve a community of tens of thousands of entrepreneurial humans from all over the planet, which kind of blows my mind.
There’s a WHOLE lot more to that story (+ you can find a good bit of it here), but in short:
I built a business around helping entrepreneurs use their REAL voices online.
Aaaand now I’m ready to switch things up a bit.
I love laughing till I ugly cry, expressing my feelings through carefully selected GIFs, and daydreaming of national parks to visit now that we’re back on the mainland.
I’m in the midst of a Texas-sized transition over here, and although sometimes I wish I could skip to the back of the book + peek at the “what’s happening next??” answer key…
Most days I grant myself permission to chill out + enjoy the freakin’ journey.
THE OFFICIAL BIO
AKA THE WRITE-ABOUT-YOURSELF-IN-THIRD-PERSON VERSION
Nikki Elledge Brown is known online as the host of the Naptime Empires™ podcast and creator of A Course About Copy®. She’s a proud military spouse, mom, former park ranger and college professor who built a multi-six-figure business in under 18 months by helping thousands of entrepreneurs communicate with clarity and confidence. (She later embarked on a super character-building journey in which she considered shutting it all down / running away from the internet after the birth of her second son.)
When she’s not writing about herself in third person, you can find her spending too much time on Instagram or geeking out over which national park(s) she’ll visit next with her husband + three kiddos.
