Today we’re visiting with Jenny Rausch (left) and Katie Allen (right), owners of Anthousai, a boutique floral and gift shop in the heart of the historic Kendall Whittier District in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

It’s no secret that many business partnerships simply don’t work out. But, Jenny and Katie have built a friendship as they’ve built a flower business and they have some great insights into the reasons they believe their partnership has worked. Join us as we talk about:

  • How they learned floral design before they could afford in-person instruction
  • Their desire to normalize the side hustle and encourage designers who are just getting started
  • Why they added a flower shop to their existing wedding/event floral business
  • The logisitics of opening a retail space
  • Why Jenny thinks forming her partnership with Katie was crucial to the success of Anthousai
  • Sharing knowledge with confidence
  • Managing social anxiety while running a public-facing business
