Ordering Flowers WAS my Least Favorite Thing to do...

Jessica Zimmerman | Business Education Blog | Ordering flowers WAS my least favorite thing to do...

Ordering flowers was always my least favorite thing to do. I hated writing recipes and counting how many stems I needed. I would put off ordering until the last possible minute.

Having three small children, I really value my time, so anything that takes way longer than I think it should, I dread. Ordering flowers took me at the very least an entire work day (sometimes it took me two or three!) to complete. I used to go to my wholesaler's website and look up all my flower options. I would start by season availability then color. There were so many options! The back and forth dance of staying on budget and editing down the flowers I so desperately wanted to order would go back and forth for what seemed like forever.

After doing this for a couple of years, I finally got smart. I thought, "There has to be a better way!"

So I created a system to SOLVE this problem. Today it takes me 20 minutes or less to place a flower order. I have an entire chapter devoted to how I order flowers AND how I no longer write recipes or count stems in my course, The Business Behind the Blooms!

Help me spread the word! If you know someone who would benefit from this course, please tag them below or share this post. I can't do this without you!
