I'm a speaker, podcaster, writer, teacher and friendtor (that's word-nerd for "friend + mentor"). I'm also a mom, military spouse, former college professor and park ranger best known for leading refreshingly honest conversations on:

  • all things communication – using your REAL voice to build a fun, profitable business
  • entrepreneurship – the good, the bad, the totally awkward + uncomfortable
  • work-life (im)balance – motherhood and #naptimeempires life: adventures in biz-building with little ones at home
  • the military spouse career track – the value in creating a location-independent business on your terms 

On this page you'll find a curated collection of relevant features, talks, and interviews - in audio, video, and fully emoji'ed #instastory fashion.

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 first made a name for herself online when she built a multi-six-figure business helping thousands of entrepreneurs write with conversational clarity and confidence. (All this from home and with a toddler in tow, hence #naptimeempires.)

As a series of major life milestones sparked a super …character-building.. journey (in which she considered shutting it all down / running away from the internet), Nikki launched her candid, lofi-style On Her Terms® podcast to share lessons on resistance, relationships, and navigating a fulfilling, creative life amidst cooties and carpool.

When she’s not working on her book or writing about herself in third person, you can find her spending too much time LingOL at reels on Instagram or geeking out over which Disney / national park(s) she’ll visit next with her husband + three kiddos.

Check out her stories, tips, and inspiration on life, business, and all things communication in her podcasts and at nikkielledgebrown.com.
