Today we’re catching up with Sylvia Bustamante Gubbins, owner of Madrid Flower School. You may remember our conversation with Sylvia in Episode 42 (2019) when she had just opened MFS. So much has happened since that conversation, we thought it would be fun to sit back down and see how Sylvia has guided the school through growth in the midst of a pandemic and where she’s headed in 2022.
