Welcome back Nicole Crowder from episode 62! Nicole is an independent furniture designer and upholsterer behind Nicole Crowder Upholstery based in Washington D.C. She has been upholstering furniture for clients since 2013. Her list of clients includes residential, commercial, and hospitality, as well as small design collections. Previously Nicole was a Photo Editor in the publishing industry, working with AARP, The Washington Post, National Geographic Traveler, and Netflix.

In this episode, Nicole discusses how her business has grown since 2018, acquiring space for her workshops, the power of collaborations, her new meditation pillow product line, and energy management. We also discuss shipping woes, time blocking, and managing multiple IG accounts.

  • Snippet from my IG post taking about shipping: @nicolemcrowder 😂 Large items are always tricky. Here are a few suggestions that may or may not work:
    • (1) Apply to become an Amazon Handmade Wholesaler. I used them when I was selling light switch plates. Once you’re approved you can elect to have them do the fulfillment. That might be something for the future because I don’t know how quickly they’re responding to applications.
    • (2) Consider using fulfillment places like shipbob.com or shipstation.com. I’ve never used them, but I’ve seen them mentioned by successful entrepreneurs.
    • (3) If you don’t want to go the fulfillment route you should be able to get plastic bags cheaply from clearbags.com and boxes from uline.com (I’m sure they have boxes that will work). Check out places like papermart.com too. I’ve used all three. If you have two shipping days a week it might make it more manageable.

      Also, I think USPS might pick it up from your door. Check out their business shipping. UPS and FedEx also have stuff for businesses, but you’d be surprised how amazing USPS is. They will ship you bundles of boxes for FREE. You just need to find a size that works.
