August Member Host: Nellie Stokeld

SPOTLIGHT QUESTIONNAIRE

Signature Cocktail: La Croix all day.

Tea or Coffee? Coffee

I collect… houseplants        

Favorite City? New York! That’s why I moved here! For travel, Hanoi, Vietnam & Tulum, Mexico

Style Icon? Annie Hall

Bloom of choice? Ranunculus! They’re like a peony & a rose in one!

Favorite Season? Fall . Scarves really do it for me.

I'm lusting after... a down jacket for my first New York winter

Most prized possession? My experience

Lady Crush? Issa Rae of the show Insecure. She’s hilarious and blends vulnerability & strength in a really interesting way.

On weekends, I…  read a lot and meet up with friends to eat!

What's your background- career, where you grew up, school? I grew up in northern California, where my dad (who is an English eccentric) and mom owned a pub where they would put on amateur dinner theater in which they acted (to my embarrassment). I learned about the life of entrepreneurs being 24/7 but also very joyful and I wanted to recreate that in my own career. I studied anthropology in college, lived in Brazil for a year, and settled in Oakland to work for a nonprofit that helped women start businesses. I worked days connecting women to resources and at night took the class we offered, wrote my own business plan and started doing pop ups at local restaurants selling English meat pies from my family’s recipe book. I did that for five years, made every mistake imaginable, learned an amazing amount and having a lot of fun. But New York was on my brain, it’s just the most fantastic city, so I came to the conclusion that rather than lay roots to make an empire out of meat pies, I would sell off all my possessions and move to New York.

What's your biggest success so far?

Being on a motorcycle tour of the Ho Chi Minh trail in Vietnam while my business was making me money in CA was pretty cool.

What's your favorite thing about being a Lady Project member?

Connection to a purpose I believe in. Women have innate abilities that are powerful and necessary in the world more than ever and we can do so much if we have connection to one another.

What is the biggest challenge in your industry?

Currently between industries! But I’m learning about starting a startup in the apparel industry and it’s an entirely new world. It’s exciting and daunting so I’m always looking to meet people who’ve done it before.

What advice would you give to a business owner starting out in your industry that you wish you would have known going in?

For the food industry….loving to bake or cook is a great start to wanting to own a business but there is so much more to it than just that part! Figure out how to do the aspects of the business you love and hire others who can do the rest for you. I spent too long trying to do everything and when I finally made hires that could take on other aspects of the business I had so much more mental space to think big picture!

Is your business involved with any community groups?

My startup apparel company is growing thanks to the Brooklyn public library system (books are everything!), classes at General Assembly, Maker’s Row online network, and obviously, NYC Lady Project. Always on the lookout for more.

Lady Project Workshop Series: Gather Momentum

Gather Momentum: Get clear, focused and moving towards your career goals.

Socially conscious, ambitious women like you can make the world radically better. Yet, our vision for that better world is too often clouded by the constant transitions of modern careers. Whether thinking about a career pivot, starting a side hustle or business, returning to work or school, or finally settling down in a new position - transitions can leave us feeling lost, stuck and often times alone. It’s time we come together. Let’s stop worrying about our careers by ourselves and instead engage in brave, kind and honest conversations with supportive fellow dreamers. GATHER MOMENTUM uses community as catalyst and brings women together for an intimate and supportive gathering: we share what is working in our careers and what is not, gather actionable feedback and inspiration, and identify the one strategic goal we each need to focus on to build momentum right now as we design a career we love. Walk away feeling reenergized with clarity - take home a powerful one-pager detailing your action plan for the month ahead.
