( ENSPIRE She Did That ) Successful Entrepreneur Nikki Burnett Shares Some of Her Wisdom with ENSPIRE in This New Interview
ENSPIRE Contributor: Natalie Dean
CEO, “momager,” and brand ambassador Nikki Burnett has done it all! With over 15 years of experience, she is a well-oiled machine in the real estate industry. Her business savvy and hard work have made her very successful, even in this competitive market, as CEO of Modern Luxury Real Estate.
Burnett is also a self-proclaimed “Basketball Mom” and has been working hard to help her son with his basketball career– hence the title of “momager!” Her son Nimari is now an NBA prospect currently playing for the Alabama Crimson Tide and on track to play professionally.
Nikki Burnett recently interviewed with ENSPIRE:
You are someone who has done a lot of work in a lot of different fields, from real estate to being your son’s manager to being a brand ambassador. What has been the most rewarding part of your career(s) so far? What goals do you hope to accomplish soon?
The most rewarding part of my career and being a Basketball Mom has to be seeing my son receive a full-ride scholarship, playing for The University of Alabama, and pursuing his dreams to play professionally. Being able to pivot from being a Realtor and now owning my real estate investment firm has been very rewarding. I hope to obtain 10-20 new Airbnb properties this year and double that number by next year. I also hope to help others tap into the billion-dollar short-term rental industry.
How do you balance everything? Or: how do you help your son achieve his goals while making sure to also be working towards your own?
I balance everything by creating a daily schedule and to-do list, my calendar is my best friend. I manage my time wisely, always plan ahead and delegate the things that I don’t care to do or don’t know how to do. Now that my son is a young adult, living on his own in college, I can now focus more on my goals and somewhat put myself first. I’ve sacrificed so much during his younger years so now I have more time to really work on my stuff!
What has your experience been like with CEO Chicks?
My experience with CEO Chicks has been amazing! It’s the only community of spiritual women that I’ve encountered that are genuinely supportive and encouraging. They are truly my business besties and assist me with all my branding and marketing needs.
Tell us a little about your decision to partner with CEO Chicks. What inspired you? What do you hope to contribute or gain?
I partnered with The CEO Chicks as the Brand Ambassador to bring awareness to the network and share how they have helped expand my business and brand. It inspired me to do so because I feel all women in business need a community of like-minded people that can help excel them to the next level. I hope to share our network with all women in business that’s looking to come together to Collaborate, Create, & Dominate.
Last, what is your favorite piece of advice for women entrepreneurs that you have been given?
The best piece of advice I’ve received was to work smarter, not necessarily harder, to build a solid team to help bring your vision to life, and to surround yourself around like-minded, smarter people that you can learn from.
With so many experiences under her belt, Nikki Burnett can boast a number of accomplishments! Her commitment to helping others, including other female entrepreneurs as well as her family, is admirable, as she has not let her own success cloud her sense of community.
As she said in her interview, now that her son is an adult, there will be more time to focus on her own goals. Readers can get excited to see what more accomplishments Burnett sets out to achieve soon!
