The Happi Tummi story starts Nanette Meneses, who despite being told she could not have children, persevered, and got pregnant. She planned to be a stay at home mom, dedicating her life to raising her children. That would quickly change.
When her daughter was born, and wouldn't stop crying for 24 hours, all Nanette was told was "It's colic. Ride it out. If you're lucky it will end in three or four mouths."
Despite going to numerous doctors and health care professionals, no one could resolve the pain that kept her baby crying, and no one could provide a natural remedy. "Take drugs." "Take drops." was all she was told.
So she set out on a mission to find a natural solution, and after months of trial and error, developed the right combination of herbs, heat and restriction. When her baby suddenly was soothed, she was in disbelief. Even after weeks of success, her doctor said it was a coincidence, at least until his grandson had colic. When he convinced Nanette to send him the Happi Tummi, he proclaimed "This is amazing!" and insisted she use her considerable talent to give it to others.
Thus began the journey that led Nanette to creating a line of Happi Tummi products that soothe, calm, and provide wellness to all ages. "So much for being a stay at home mom!" Nanette laughs even today.
Nanette Meneses, CEO of Household Name Products, invented the award winning Happi Tummi, that has helped thousands of babies and parents. Her patented product has been featured on such broadcasts as the Today show and awarded best product for many years. But the Happi Tummi was not what Nanette set out to achieve, quite the opposite, she just wanted to be a mom.
She achieved an MBA in Marketing and became VP of Marketing for a vacation resort enterprise at 27 years old. She was instrumental in building it into a fortune 500 company, the largest of its kind in the world. Nanette created marketing and customer acquisition strategies to such sports entities as the Los Angeles Rams, San Diego Chargers and the LA Lakers. She has been a coach to CEO’s, and entrepreneurs for 20 years.
Always striving to help others, Nanette has been Knighted by the Nights of Malta, and helped fund raise for many charitable organizations. She had the privilege of offering a $100,000 check to Jerry Lewis on national television for his Telethon for Muscular Dystrophy.
Nanette loves to talk solutions to everyday problems and overcome adversity through curiosity and perseverance. She teaches how to live a balanced life, draw on your strengths and overcome your fears and adversities by resourcefulness. She believes we all can manifest a life that is a “dream come true.”
"Happi Tummi will be in every home," declared Nanette "if I have to take it to them myself." She is not kidding.
