About Andrew:

A bit about me: I'm 43 years old, 4 kids, 2 dogs. Graduated from Penn State in 2003 with a degree in business. Spent nearly 20 years in insurance.  Did insurance sales, corporate underwriting, data analytics, then owned multiple agency locations.  Sold everything in 2021 to be home with my youngest daughter.

 

Etsy: opened the shop in May 2021 and had 9 sales in 2021, 131 in 2022, 388 in 2023 and 101 YTD in 2024.  Average order value is about $175.  Total sales as of today 677 and 282 reviews or 42%. I started selling wooden picture frames because it was a product I can make that would fit on my workbench and I had all the tools to make it.  

 

EPISODE DETAILS

Scaling a physical product shop requires trial and error—and lots of systems! Listen in to hear how Andrew left insurance sales to build and scale a full time woodworking Etsy business.
