Meet Nancy of One Stop Boy Shop

Tell us a little about you . . .

I’m Nancy, a mom to 3 young boys. I made the decision to stay home with my boys a year and a half ago when my youngest son became very ill from a virus he picked up after just 3 days in daycare. As the hospital was giving him a spinal tap, I sobbed “I’m NEVER putting him back in daycare! Please just let him be okay”. Two days later he was released from the hospital so I called my boss and said “I quit”.

What is your business and where can we find it?

I’m an online “boy only” specialty store. I carry hard to find cute items that are made just for boys and offer them at affordable prices. My website address is http://www.onestopboyshop.com

Is it mom-owned, invented, created . . .?

Purely mom inspired, created, owned and operated.

A little about your entrepreneur journey so far?

I'm first and foremost a mom. Deciding to stay home with my boys a year and a half ago was a huge step and felt like a sacrifice at the time. I told myself that if I worked really hard I could someday get my career back but that this time with my boys could never be repeated. Little did I know that I could stay home, enjoy my boys AND work. Staying home inspired an entrepreneurial side of me that I didn't know existed.

I actually have 2 mom owned businesses. The first one is Pages By Nancy, which is creating simple websites for start-ups. I’m able to utilize my know-how in the I.T. industry and help others while satisfying the nerd in me.

Staying home also allowed me an opportunity to launch my dream business, One Stop Boy Shop, in October, 2008. I’d dreamt about it, but had never imagined that I could some day make it a reality. As a mom to 3 boys I was inspired to start this after years of frustrated shopping experiences. Most retailers focus on the girls and not the boys. One Stop Boy Shop is where it's all about the boys!

Where else can people find you?

My blog is at http://www.onestopboyshop.com/blog

Twitter Name is onestopboyshop

I have a Page on Facebook for One Stop Boy Shop where you can become a “fan”.

Anything else you’d like to share?

I have an addiction. :) Blogging. I'm loving getting back into writing (and reading) which is something that I'd lost even before children. My very busy career in I.T. stole more from me than I ever realized. It was all consuming and although I thought I loved it, I love this life so much more. I feel like I'm now myself.
