Okay, this is a very real post. Some of you might not want to honestly read it - and that's okay. I want to be true to myself and my business so this needs to be shared.
I am honestly pretty scared by this business. I KNOW it is something that I want to do. I LOVE growing and designing with flowers. Wow it brings me such joy, but there is so much more that goes into a business than just playing with flowers.
I have begun the race of meeting with clients, proposals, contracts, etc. It is a lot harder than I thought. Meeting with clients just drains me. I put my business out on the line to be judged. Then I wait to see if they want "me" or not. Don't get me wrong, the clients that I do have for next year are so wonderful. I am so excited to design for them, but wow it is a draining process.
Why am I sharing this you ask? This "exposes" my vulnerability yes. Every part of this business is real. I want to be so transparent to you all. I am not going to just fake it and pretend to be someone that I am not. If you ever book here with Beautifully Bloomed, know you are getting the real deal. You are getting a human being who knows how stressful weddings are. You are getting someone who is passionate about this industry and therefore someone real.
Aren't flowers a vulnerable item as well? They grow through weeds, insects, diseases and more. For what? To shoot up their beauty for the world to enjoy them. There are so many beautiful lessons that we can learn from flowers <3
Be vulnerable. Be like the flowers
