Hey Floralpreneur®, I have to be really honest about something that’s been bugging me lately. I keep seeing a lot of influencers and educators who are pushing toxic positivity & basically gaslighting us–”us” being floral designers and small business owners– so I want to lay out some things that I will NEVER do:   I will NOT tell you that a slow sales year in your business is an AMAZING opportunity and you should look on the bright side–   Because while there CAN be opportunities in the slower times to refocus your efforts on activities that actually help increase your sales ..read more

At the end of a year it’s natural to start taking stock of  “where you’re at” as well as “what you didn’t get to” during the calendar year, but I just want to remind you that there’s no actual “end” or finish line you’re pushing towards. Like, this train that we call a business doesn’t actually stop….you just keep rolling right into the new year with new work, new customers, and new plans to be made! So instead of burning out before 2024 even begins–if you’re feeling the pressure to keep pushing harder when all signs point towards slowing down–I hope you’ll take an opportunity to make ti ..read more

Everyone has to start somewhere in their business, but what do you do when you’re really ready to level-up your brand and attract better clients? My business started organically and it was ALL DIY!–from business cards I printed on my home computer to the “flyers” and occasional print ads I ran in the local papers. I only booked 1 wedding my first year in business–it was ALL sunflowers–and I felt lucky to book the work! The next year I grew my bookings to 5 weddings (thanks to some friends, and friends of friends, getting married, of course!) and then, I slowly began to build from there….10 we ..read more
