EP32 - Sock Religious: From a Side-hustle to a Rapidly Growing Business w/ Scott Williams

Alto by Libertas is inspired by the Italian phrase "Verso l'alto", which means "to the heights", emblematic of the heroic life of Italian mountaineer and social activist Pier Giorgio Frassati. Listen to raw and authentic conversations on Faith, Culture, Fitness and Mission-Driven Entrepreneurship that will help us pursue "the heights" together!


Scott Williams, co-founder and co-owner of Sock Religious, is a ministry professional turned entrepreneur. After working nearly a decade in full-time youth ministry, most recently as the Director of Youth Ministry at the Archdiocese of Indianapolis, Scott turned a side-hustle into a rapidly growing small business in a niche Catholic corner of the internet. If you asked Scott 10 years ago if he would be selling socks and other merchandise, he would have said you're crazy. He says "yes" to the next step of the journey each day. 

Episode Themes:

  1. Sock Religious' genesis story.
  2. Mary's Fiat as integral to Sock Religious' mission and business model.
  3. Discerning the big decision to go all-in on Scott's side-hustle.
