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.

Throwback – Episode 23 – Paige Poppe – Getting Involved in the Local Scene

Craft show season is upon us, so we wanted to throw it back to Episode 23 with Paige Poppe. Paige Poppe came on the show and talked all about getting involved in your local scene!  Paige is an amazing artist from Arizona who has a recognized online brand, but also has this whole local craft/art show thing down to a science! We hope you enjoy this throwback episode!

Here is a little more about Paige:

Paige Poppe is an Arizona native, currently living + working as a full-time artist in the Valley. Painting every day in Scottsdale, she is surrounded by the beautiful Sonoran desert. She works in watercolor + acrylic, painting the desert landscape and botanicals as her subject matter.

Paige is a graduate from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo and holds her Bachelor of Architecture degree. This has left her with a great appreciation for sketching + working in analog, but her digital skills, including proficiency in the Adobe Creative Suite, allow her to work digitally, create mockups, and clearly communicate ideas with clients.

Paige is proud to connect with her local community by participating in several local art markets and including Phoenix Flea, the Tempe Arts Festival, and an art installation at Cartel Coffee. She has collaborated on exclusive designs with local apparel brand Overthrow Clothing, and shared her work at events at Madewell Fashion Square and West Elm Kierland. Her work can also be found at several retail boutiques including MADE Art in downtown Phoenix and !Viva! Paso in Paso Robles, CA.  

Her painting and design work extends to her own products, wedding stationery design, branding and packaging for small businesses, design work for Phoenix Flea marketing, and large scale painting commissions for clients.

We told you she rocks!  She also mentioned some great resources on the show that we wanted to link below.
