Nonna – if you didn’t already know, it means Grandmother in Italian. Many years ago, a group of Italian Grandmothers got together and said, let’s create a marketing agency! No, not really – my Grandma didn’t even know what a website was!
The truth is in 2016 my grandmother Judie passed away unexpectedly. She was not only my grandma but my best friend and biggest fan. She always encouraged me and supported me and told me I would grow up to do ‘big things’.
My grandparents were entrepreneurs for most of their lives and I was always intrigued by the life they lived. It wasn’t perfect, but they worked on their own time and towards their own goals and dreams. When she passed away it really hit me that life is too short. I knew I didn’t want to live a life ‘working for the man’ and to work so hard towards someone else’s dream. That is when I created – Nonna.
Nonna, LLC was the starting point of living out MY dream. I know my Grandma would be proud of the company I have created and the purpose behind the brand. My Grandmother lived to serve and help other people. She put everyone before herself and she lived a purposeful life for the Lord. I only hope to be half the woman she was.
