About Nancy
I'm the owner of Sticky Be Socks. We sell grip socks for Women, Men & Babies (Kids sizes are in the works) with inspirational "be" sayings on them. I've worked in the Fitness & Apparel industry for over 16 years. I live in LA & a single mama to a 14 month old baby girl.

Best advice you've ever been given

Don't stress about the things you can't control. You don't always need a plan. Trust the universe and let go....

Personal Passions, Charities, Hobbies:

Spending time with my daughter, Travel, Art, Fashion, Fitness, Cooking, Meditation

Name one thing that scares the shit out of you:

Losing my mother..I lost my father 6 years ago.

What is one thing that would be game-changing for your business right now?

I’ve made it successfully over the first hump of taking over Sticky Be Socks (phew), and I’ve been able to stimulate momentum behind the brand. Now, I’d like to step it up even more, with more attention, social media usage and placement. I’m intent on ensuring these activities remain aligned with our encouraging, welcoming vibe, though, so finding the intersection of the modern world’s approach to “PR” and SBS’ personal vibe is on my to-do list.

If you could tell your 20 year old self one thing, what would it be?

Breathe in to where you are right now. Your life will often not go as planned. It will go better. And worse. And back to better again. But there are happy surprises along the way if you stop to pay attention to them. Know that you’ll make your desires a reality, usually when you loosen your knuckled grip on the string holding that balloon of your dreams. The path to each goal may simply be a different road than you planned to turn down. Keep driving anyway...

Why do you want to be a part of heymama?

While work and home life are fulfilling, handling everything at once can be overwhelming, exhausting and stressful. Joining a group that understands all facets of this complex rotation resonates deeply with me. I love to connect with others, whether for a vent, laugh or problem-solving session, and I feel I can both receive so much wisdom from the other mamas, as well as add value in networking and simple support.
