I’m Nikki Cummings, proud mama of three stoke-chasing kiddos, and wife and business partner to my best friend, Buddy. I’m an entrepreneur living my dream come true on the Gulf of Mexico in Pensacola, Florida. I love spending time on our ranch in California and jetting off on new adventures with my tribe. I hold coffee sacred. I love all things chocolate and am crazy for antique stores and flea markets. My perfect day involves a beach, the sun, no makeup, a motivating book and drinking from a coconut, while watching my family live their best lives.
Who am a kidding? Yes, this is all true, but even when I’m living out my perfect day, I’m thinking about business. As an entrepreneur, we do it for the pursuit, the hustle and the pure love of the game!
Before becoming Cofounder and CEO of Cummings Camp Programs, serving entrepreneurs as a trainer, speaker, coach and business consultant, I started businesses from scratch. I started my first company in high school. For nearly twenty years, my partner Buddy and I built teams. We celebrated successes and weathered seasons of crises. We navigated the growing pains that come with scaling a “mom-and-pop shop” into a large organization that became the #1 business in our industry. This Included learning what to do–and what not to do–when positioning a company to be sold.
My expertise is in helping develop and execute systems and practices to help companies streamline efficiencies, improve accountability and communication and stabilize operational infrastructure for scale. As a business owner, responsible for the day-to-day, it can be difficult to get above the weeds to look out at the horizon. Sometimes, it’s helpful to have another set of experienced eyes helping you identify areas for improvement and assisting in creating and executing the plan to completion.
As an entrepreneur, who is married to an entrepreneur, you can imagine the conversations around our house! We talk about two things: Business & Business — the good and the bad, the ups and the downs, the battles and the victories. We are always looking for new opportunities. . . .and new challenges. I believe GRIT is something that cannot be bought, but it can be earned. And, GRIT trumps everything else!
Our greatest passion is people. When you are a real leader, the members of your team thrive. Selecting and growing the teams have been my biggest reward and the secret to our success! Our Here to Serve® philosophy is at the center of everything we do. We believe that when your team feels valued, engaged and aligned with your vision, your company is unstoppable.
The seeds to serve other entrepreneurs were planted early on. Our journey has equipped us for this service. Today, we have the expertise, experience, desire and honor of serving you — the Renegade, the Dreamer, the Risk Taker, the Doer. Our intention every day is the same: To help you Define the Business of your Dreams, so you can Live the Life of your Dreams.
Here to Serve®!
