What do you enjoy most about being a business owner?

Nikki: I enjoy the flexibility of being an entrepreneur the most. It allows me to create my own hours and be present and hands-on with my son and his career.

What is a normal business day like for you?

Nikki:  A normal day in the life of Nikki B. consists waking up at 7 am, meditating for 15 minutes then getting straight to business. I check my calendar/to-do list first, then I start making phone calls and checking emails. I try to be productive and fit everything business-related into the hours of 7 am-3 pm. Work/Life Balance & Peace is important for me.

What have been some challenges you had to overcome in your line of work?

Nikki:  The challenges I had to overcome in real estate was when I first received my license in 2005. I had the idea that my friends and family would support me and that just wasn’t the case. I had to realize that you can’t expect or depend on the people you know to support you. You simply have to work hard, grind and build your business then the customers/clients will come.

What have been some of the most memorable moments in your career so far?

Nikki:  The most memorable moment is when I sold my first half a million-dollar property after being a realtor for 5 years. It took a lot of time, long hours, and dedication to get to that point.

What are you currently working on and what can we be on the lookout for?

Nikki: I just launched my Airbnb Playbook. It’s a free downloadable guide that offers the tips on how to get started in the short-term rental industry.

I’m releasing my Airbnb E-course that will be available in July. It will outline exactly how I built my business and teach others exactly how to obtain their first Airbnb property.

What is a quote that you live by?

Nikki: The quote I live by is Life has no limitations, except the ones you make. I truly believe that the only people that fail, are the ones that give up.
