Nicole Akers

Media Strategist and Community-Building Guru

Nicole began writng at an early age and went on to study creative writing and journalism at Indiana State University where she graduated cum laude. Post-university, she sought out ways she could use her talents to impact people more directly, and has been building communities personally and professionally as her family life has led her across the U.S. Currently, Nicole spends her days (and many nights) working in and around some of the online communities that she has helped to build.


Do you want to build a tribe and don’t know what to do? Nicole Akers has proven experience building thriving, active online communities. The Tribe Builder’s Network is a prime example of this. She has been there since the beginning – meeting people, helping them, and giving them space to be all they can be. I can say with confidence that this community of writers, artists, and creatives is what it is because of her dedicated, intentional, and strategic efforts to make it so. When you need someone in your corner to make you shine, you can’t go wrong with a Community Builder like Nicole. As someone who has worked with her in the trenches, I give her my highest recommendation!

“If you want to be successful in virtually any venture online, you’ll need a community behind you. It may be engaged clients—for writers and artists like myself, that could be fans. Yet no one tells you how challenging it is to build a dynamic community that truly thrives. Such a community requires ‘magnets’, ‘connectors’ and strategic application of social catalysts to develop a common vision and build the core of a community, which are relationships. Few people have these skills. Which is why Nicole Akers is such a gem. She has them all, in abundance. Vision, focus, dedication, brilliance, experience, and strategic genius all wrapped up in a personality you can’t help but adore & respect. Well, unless you’re evil. If you want an engaged community built around your business, brand or project, then you’re on the right site, talking to the right woman. ‘Cause you’d be a damn fool not to work with her.”

There is nothing like a community to build your strength, your compassion, and your focus. There are many different types of community but all of them keep us together. Online communities which focus on a common goal can help tremendously in all areas of your life. In our towns and cities it is very important to be a part of a group or groups. Standing alone doesn’t work. It does take effort, and that’s where Nicole excels.  She shows you how to put yourself into the community and be a part of it.

Building a website and growing an online presence isn’t easy. The process can feel isolating and lonely without the support, friendship, and guidance communities provide. Nicole understands from experience the powerful impact that participating in online communities brings to all creatives. She is kind, helpful, knowledgeable, and authentic. I highly recommend Nicole as someone who you can trust to help you light your path to success!

I met Nicole Leakers in an online group where she proactively models building community.   Nicole is not only consistent in connecting people and needs and conversations, which is essential to community building, she is insightful, creative and inspiring in the process. Her leadership has influenced my own writing and tribe building approach.

You will enjoy being in Nicole’s space and benefit from her expertise as you welcome others into your own tribe.
