Hey there, Floral Friends!
I’ve a confession to make. I’ve been a wedding floral designer for 9 years and in the wedding industry for 16 years. When I started my business, I had no idea what I was doing and sadly, continued for many years without making a profit. On the outside, I seemed to have a thriving business and making big bucks. But the truth is that I was always in the red. I was lost, I worked 16 hours a day, I was burnt out, I felt lonely, I didn’t know how to turn the situation around. I tried many different things but kept going in circles. And you know what? I felt like I was a Big . Fat . Lie .
After years and years of little sleep, not eating properly, back pains, no time with my family and not willing to invest money to get help, I was about to give up. I was going to end everything and go find a 9 to 5, which I have never had in my life. Deep down, I was not convinced that it was the end of my wedding career. I knew I had to turn things around Once . And . For . All .
It was either I pull the plug or I go-big-or-go-home. I’m sure you can guess which path I chose. I went all out and invested a few thousand dollars in turning my business around for good. As soon as I made that decision, it was like a magic wand. I finally started to created a REAL business. I built a business that is strong and sustainable and one that stood the REAL test. Even in the midst of a pandemic, I signed some of my biggest wedding contracts to date!
Lately, I’ve had many wedding floral designers and wedding planners reach out to ask me questions related to building their businesses. I discovered that I really enjoy exchanging thoughts and my experiences with them. We can spend hours on the phone without even realizing time had gone by. I am now determined to make myself an open book. Because it took me years and hundreds of thousandsss of dollars to figure all this out, I want to help fellow weddingpreneurs. I want to help those who are just starting out or, like me, have been in business for a while but still struggling to run a profitable business.
If this is you, then THIS is the right place for you because, my friends, I’ve been there and done it all. I know how you feel and I want to help. I invite you to hop on and follow along as I begin to unfold everything that I’ve learnt (the hard way!) in my past 16 years, and counting, of being a wedding entrepreneur.
I’d love to connect with you! Introduce yourself below or ask me a question and connect with me on Instagram! I look forward to being on this journey with you to creating a sustainable and profitable wedding floral design business.
Cheering you on!
