Hello Loves! I hope you are having a lovely evening. Girls and I just finished working in the studio for today's orders and I am ready to head back home. While on the road i love listening to podcasts or books from audible. Recently i am hooked on these podcasts about floristry and everything about flowers. 

1. Botanical Brouhaha

Amy McGee's words: `The story of Botanical Brouhaha is really best described as a journey, and one that has been unfolding since 2009. If we start from the beginning, over 20 years ago, I was working in my small cut flower garden which eventually grew into a full wedding and event floral design studio in Bryan, Texas. I spent my days sourcing, styling, and designing for events while navigating the daily challenges of running a small creative business and raising our two boys with my husband Joel. In 2008, I elected to take a one-year hiatus from the business to focus on time with my family, and as a result of wanting to stay connected to the floral industry, and the designers I loved so much, I launched my blog Botanical Brouhaha the following year.`

3. The Flower Podcast by Scott Shepherd

"My interest in flowers only grew from there. Throughout childhood, my family let me dabble in the home landscape planting seeds, shrubs, and most of all experimenting with flowers. YES! I was that guy, not with trophies on my wall, but with grow lights and plants in my bedroom. 

My floral journey eventually led to a degree in horticulture. Just before graduating, I couldn't decide on a field to pursue, I LIKED THEM ALL.  Dr. Allan Armitage, my then advisor at University of Georgia, received a phone call from a floral wholesaler and described the kind of person they were looking for to join the company....

So now, years later, I'm still involved in the floral industry. "

4. Business Blooming Podcast

Christina: "When I started my business back in 2005, I had no idea that it was the beginning stages of finding my passion and building a business I truly love. But it was not an easy journey and it took many years of sweat and tears to get to where I am today.

Back then, there were no resources available. I had no formal business or floral education and I felt very alone and discouraged. I had to learn EVERYTHING the hard way; through trial and error. At the same time, I was balancing a full time career as a school teacher. It was a long process full of frustration and heartbreak, to say the least.

It wasn't until I put systems into place, that I was able to grow a sustainable and profitable floral business that has allowed me to scale over the years and generate a multiple six-figure income.     

Today, my love of teaching has allowed me to cultivate this floral community where I share with you my experience and knowledge from over the years. As an educator, I am compelled help others and eliminate the guessing game so that you can bloom in your business and see results right away."

Anahit: "I interview floral artists and entrepreneurs from all walks of the industry. 

I love discovering people's stories, learning from everyone's expertise, and sharing all that I've learned throughout my journey with everyone!

As we know, our industry encompasses wide range of floral professionals and experts from other fields, such as artists, designers, farmers, distributors, wholesalers, educators, planners, photographers… and the list goes on. It is vital to recognize the importance of each and every one of these experts . I will be striving to bring a glimpse of it all to you through stories from industry experts, newcomers, trendsetters and followers.
My primary goal is to share, educate and empower while learning and staying inspired myself.

Let me bring you the art and business of flowers!"
