About Us

Well Hello there!  Thank you so much for stopping by.  We are the Nagels…  All seven of us.

I, Athena, am the primary writer and creator for The Stuff of Success but I could never do what I do without the assistance and influence from my family.  I drag them everywhere, to do all sorts of fun and crazy things – all in the name of The Stuff of Success.  They have been doing it for so long it is now pretty much a way of life.

During the day I am a mild mannered School Business Administrator in a local urban public school district.  That is a huge job.  By early evening I return to being the mom of two special needs children who need lots of love and attention.  Boy those two have come such a long way!  As you see there are also two older children (and another one not in the photo) who also participate in all this “stuff” when the opportunity comes up.  And my husband – he is also a public school administrator in a different school district from me.

We went years – decades – without a single vacation and now we vacation a lot in Maine.  Much of our time all year long is spent in CT, RI, MA, NH and ME.  We are always running somewhere to participate in something, creating as many memories for our family as we can.  You all know life is just too short to do otherwise.
