Nicole was a SAHM trying to maintain her sanity as a new mom. She turned to Etsy in February 2014 and opened her shop which is now called Palm to Pine Design. It took a few years, but with well over 18,000 sales under her belt, she now runs a 6-figure Etsy business.
In our conversation this week, we chat about how her passion has became a legitimate business, but it didn’t all happen overnight.
Over the past 7 years, she has enjoyed slowly growing her business, but have always put being a mom first.
