Loved this! Thank you for sharing, and thanks to Semia! <3
Yet another wonderful podcast episode… Thank you for the work you are doing. I’ll admit that listening to podcasts is both inspiring to me but at times makes me feel inferior because I haven’t had the success that some of the speakers have. But your podcast is always inspiring and shows the true hard work and grit needed in the floral industry. Thanks for not just showing the pretty side and giving us all inspiration to push harder. I don’t have a lot of “flower friends” in my area. Like Semia has in her local wholesale industry, I have had push back from other designers in my area. Your podcast always feels like I am listening in with a conversation with flower friends. I am sure I’m not the only one that is truly grateful for that.
What an amazing compliment, Whitney! You touched on the heart and soul of this project for us – simply bringing the truth about the real lives of those in the flower industry. Some include the kind of grandeur that inspires, but most are inspiring for other reasons – mainly the hard work it takes and the challenges that always present themselves along the way. We can all relate to that 😉 Thanks for listening. It means so much to us! xo
