Loren's Badass Chick

Nina Pickell

I am out on maternity leave, but each week I have a new Badass Chick for you! If you have any recommendations for Badass Chick, please email me when I return to the air. In the mean time, be sure to follow me on social @LorenRaye and I'll be back before you know it!


This week's Badass Chick is Nina Pickell, an entrepreneur who has built a business on her love for music, innovation and empowering creative entrepreneurs.


A musician and former corporate executive, Nina has always had a love for music. Her father was briefly in the music business and worked with famous musicians like Chuck Berry. When her parents divorced, she had a pretty tough upbringing, but what saved her was her relationships with God and music. Interestingly, she vividly remembers the first song that made her cry, and from then on she knew she wanted to use her time on earth to keep the joy and passion of content creation alive — especially in music and the arts. 


Armed with a BBA and MBA in business and marketing, Nina has a few companies (Off The Stage Music & Nina Pickell LLC) and spends her days advising brands, organizations and individuals that add something special to the world. Her rule is that they have to be passionate and authentic. She has a music series and a speaking series on building power brands and entrepreneurship, and works with recording artists as well. In fact, she's curated a listening party this weekend for Ashley Jordan, a grammy-nominated, local country/alt/rock singer. 


Nina manages to find a way to keep the passion for music alive and focuses her energy on helping other people who are just as passionate as she is. I think it's pretty awesome that she's able to make a living by putting good back into the world and supporting the creators out there pushing the envelope!
