flowers + reading
Today we’re visiting with Tina Sharpe, owner of Living Fresh Home Goods & Flower Shop in St. Jacobs, Ontario.
Tina has woven together a business model uniquely built on her life experiences – first managing garden centers and greenhouses, then studying floral and interior design, and ultimately finding the love of her life, moving her business to the charming Village of St. Jacobs, and restructuring to a 4-day work week alongside her husband which leaves time for travel and rest.
If you find yourself wondering how business challenges, setbacks, and redirections can strengthen your flower business and lead to the life you really want to live, Tina’s story will encourage you to keep moving forward while holding on to the things that are important to you.
