Nick Baucom is the Founder and President of Two Marines Moving. Nick founded Two Marines Moving on November 10th, 2008, which is the United States Marine Corps Birthday. His company primarily employs veterans and offers a variety of moving services serving the entire Washington D.C. Metro area.

Nick grew up in Memphis, TN and decided to enlist in the Marines Reserves as an infantryman after 9/11. Nick was attending the University of Memphis when his unit was called up. He served in Iraq in 2003 and was in the Marine Corps for over 6 years.

Nick describes how he built his first business after returning from Iraq. His business ultimately went bankrupt,but he learned many valuable lessons. He took those lessons, along with the never quit attitude from the Marines and built Two Marines Moving.

Nick had this to say about relating time in the Marine Corps to building a business:

…I was never going to drop out, I was never going to give up…The way you get through it is you put one foot in front of the other and never give up. I have taken that philosophy and you can apply that to business, to life, to a relationship, what ever it is.
