Meet Cyrus Nusum of TiPi Tent Soirees, LLC of Virtual Marketing Consultant

Today we’d like to introduce you to Cyrus Nusum.

Hi Cyrus, thanks for sharing your story with us. To start, maybe you can tell our readers some of your backstory.
I am originally from Pennsylvania and moved to Baltimore when I was seven years old. My mother, who was beyond a community activist quickly introduced my sisters and I to helping and serving others. I started my career back in 1989 working for Maryland General Hospital in community outreach providing free phlebotomy screenings to community residents. While in this role, I was introduced to community health fairs which put me on the forefront of creating, designing and executing huge events. Spin forward to today, after being the host and creator of hundreds of events, I know helping people bring their event ideas to fruition is my passion.

I started TiPi Tent Soirees after a family member in Bermuda was hosting glamping events and during the mist of the pandemic another friend shot me a picture of a glamping picture. At that point, I knew this was what I wanted to do! I am an artist and creating events is just another way for me to express my creativity. Now, the model of “at home” event hosting for many people is ideal in a world where social distancing and reuniting with family makes TiPi Tent Soirees beyond a gold mind. As the founder of Virtual Marketing Consulting, I have the eye for not only creating the event, but I can also provide many levels of developing material for the new TiPi Tent Soirees. I am beyond in a happy place in my life.

We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
Technically it has been a smooth road but there have been some bumps in that road. The biggest opportunity was self-motivation. The unknown itself was scary and held me up when I thought I was ready but I was always sent a message in some form that gave me a push and sense of security.

Appreciate you sharing that. What should we know about TiPi Tent Soirees, LLC of Virtual Marketing Consultant?
I am known for being the owner and principal consultant of Virtual Marketing Consultant (VMC) and TiPi Tent Soirees. VMC was created in 2009 creating marketing, branding, web development, and a host of other marketing and outreach planning. TiPi Tent Soirees, LLC is an Adult Only Glamping rental company. We provide personal events for Women and Men on location at home or other venues of their choice.

What sets me apart from others is my work ethic. From sunup to sundown if there is a job or task no matter how large or small, it will be completed with perfection. I am committed to building my best friend’s mental health agency, Transformation Health since its inception in 2009, all while building my own businesses. Not only her business but my sister Michelle Nusum-Smith’s business, The Word Woman, LLC.

I am most proud of being able to brand TiPi Tent Soirees in a way where color is not an option. The diversity of clientele has been remarkable. I have clients who are flying in from San Francisco to host a Soiree just because it crosses all lines of celebrations.

I want people to know about our amazing packages with something for everyone! We have annual celebrations to date night to Havana nights for men. We have specialty adult beverages, catering, and balloon garnishments to suit anyone! If you don’t want a package, you can customize your package to your color or style of your choice. For any reader, we have a special of 20% OFF any package choice!

Where we are in life is often partly because of others. Who/what else deserves credit for how your story turned out?
I can not go without giving my sister Michelle Nusum-Smith just about all the praise for being my number one cheerleader, mentor, and advocate for becoming the business owner I am today. Michelle has taught me so much in business management and has pushed me over the years to never give up on my dreams.

I give credit to my best friend and business partner, Monica Boddie, LCSW-C for not only seeing my vision but also supporting me every step of the way throughout the years. Monica has supported me in every venture I have started even the ones that have failed and have financially invested in many businesses including TiPi Tent Soirees.

My financial mentor and advisor Felicia Jackson-Smith has also played a major role in my career. Felicia has truly been instrumental in teaching me that money is everything because, with it, you can change many lives. Felicia has taught me how to invest in non-traditional businesses as well as new up-and-coming investment strategies.
