On their website, they share a blog of one of their partner florists, Jeanna Bailey of your floral matters llc. for this month of April.
A career in floristry is one of the most varied, rewarding yet demanding, and comprehensive careers in human society. Always using both sides of the brain, a florist's day is driven by season, occasion, product availability, client needs, and changing trends – all the while being an educated, cost-conscious business owner. No two seasons, weeks, or days are alike, thus requiring focus every single day.
Specifically, within the industry categories, our days are very different…are you an event florist, a retail florist, or a freelancer? Do you have a brick-and-mortar shop, a design studio, or a home-based service? Each of these business models contributes to specific positives and negatives in a flower lover's day. The commonalities among these specialties are passion, dedication, focus, organization, and the requirement for self-care.
My name is Jeanna Bailey, owner of your floral matters, llc. since 2009. My business is a hybrid of daily retail deliveries and walk-ins, pre-planned corporate and social events, and corporate/hospitality standing orders. Although tucked away in the lower lobby of a Midtown office tower, every single workday is extremely full.
