Are you longing for honest, in-depth and detailed business education focused exclusively on the wedding floral industry? THIS is the 2-day workshop experience for you.

We are creatives, however, what we experience in the course of running our businesses is much different than the average creative! We work with a perishable product in a fast paced environment that requires organization, patience and a lot more than just luck.

Whether you are looking to start your floral business, feel that you started off on the wrong foot, or you have an established business in need of a makeover or fine-tuning, your business needs this intensive course. Yes, this is a floral workshop...but we won't be touching flowers! This is all about business, with a curated focus on processes and procedures to help maximize profitability, and ease the stress through organization. We are in this business because we love it and, in order to stay in business, we need to generate income that excites us!

A six figure income is not only attainable, it is expected in this line of work. This industry is far too difficult to settle for anything less! If you are like I was when I started, funding is tight. Although you want to dream big, it is hard to come up with big dollars to invest in education. I have trimmed out all the fluff and created an event that truly is business-focused, with the intent of propelling your business to the next financial level.

This 2-day business intensive is sold separately or as a package, so you can choose where you want to grow. Register for one day, or both, dependent on your needs.

LOCATION: Annapolis, Maryland 

DATES: February 25 & 26
