podcast appearances

Creative Biz Rebellion - “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.” Released May 2019.

Dear Handmade Life - “Today on the Dear Handmade Life podcast I’m talking to Sara McNally, the owner of Constellation & Co about mental health, creatives and business. I chat with Sara about her struggle to be honest about her anxiety and how her cards are a part of that, we share some of our go-to coping skills and we also talk about some general business stuff like the importance of knowing and staying true to yourself, how saying yes and no to opportunities evolves over times and setting boundaries.” Released April 2019.

Creatives Crushing Anxiety - “This episode was one of my all-time favorite to record. Sara was so open about her own experiences with loss and anxiety.

In this episode:

  • The need she feels in the marketplace that inspired her cards.

  • How to find the words when there aren’t any.

  • The way she lets her personal life inspire what she creates.

  • The “What-If” avenues we travel after a loss.

  • How working for yourself stretches you and can also trigger you.

  • Why she started a YouTube channel.

  • How she addresses anxiety with her husband and son.

  • How anxiety can isolate you and why it’s important to realize your feelings aren’t a burden to the people who love you.

  • Why you need to check in with yourself and ask for what you need.”
    Released April 2019.

Side Hustlers with Carla Marie - “Carla Marie talks to Sara McNally, the creator of Constellation & Co., a snail mail company! Sara creates greeting cards for life's REAL moments. Her story on HATING her day job is eerily relatable for most!” Released March 2019.

Crafty Ass Female - “Sara shares her creative backstory from going to school for graphic design, designing greeting cards from home, working “terrible ad-agency jobs”, doing a letterpress printing internship, to falling into owning her business. She talks about trying to figure out how to blend her love of making things, working with her hands, and writing. Sara feels like her superpower is brevity + efficiency, and talks about the complexity of her designs is in their simplicity. Brilliant! She also talks about the abundance mindset vs. the scarcity mindset, ‘pruning back’ different aspects of her business, needing to learn how to delegate tasks to her team, + standing behind her business decisions.” Released February 2019.
