Episode 119 – Mental Health and Your Business with Sara McNally

Mental Health is something that is rarely talked about, especially as it relates to running a business. Enter Sara McNally. Sara has a brick & mortar shop in Seattle and is on the show today sharing her own experience with anxiety while running her business. This is a candid conversation full of wisdom and honesty about a topic we feel needs to be highlighted more.

About Sara

Sara McNally is the owner of Constellation & Co, a letterpress stationery company and brick & mortar gift shop located in the Seattle Fisherman’s Terminal.

Constellation & Co uses the power of words and the magic of snail mail to connect people and make us all feel less alone.

Our line of cards and gifts are inspired by the events and occasions in life that are made sweet by close, honest relationships. Our work as Constellation & Co. is built for sharing joy and holding our loved ones close in the middle of pain.

When Sara’s not working at the shop, she’s sending snail mail to her loved ones, buying copious amounts of fountain pens, and spending time with her husband and son.

Episode 117 – Manufacturing and Designing a Product with Nicole Ketchum

Episode 116 - Local Market Prep Part 2
<

Taking a product from idea to the shelves can be daunting especially if it has to be manufactured. We wanted to talk to someone who has been in the trenches so on today’s episode we are chatting with Nicole Ketchum of Hey Girl Decor. Nicole tells us all about how her chandeliers came to be and the process it took to get them manufactured overseas.

About Nicole

Hi I’m Nicole, Founder and Designer of Hey Girl Decor, formally Chandelier By NK. Hey Girl Decor is a modern acrylic decor company — founded in 2014.

It started as an idea to create an easy, chic chandelier without lights. The idea of making a chandelier and then flipping it on it’s head and redefining it was so much fun!

Our mission statement is simple: We take designing seriously — but don’t think decor should be serious.

We are currently scaling our brand, with the goal of retailers for licensing opportunities, and rolling out a new name and logo next week.
