Chat with Ace Berry AIFD

Hi Ya'll!!!

Like my big Texan greeting? This week on the podcast I would like to share an amazing lil chat I got to have with Ace Berry AIFD. We talk shop, making brides cry and personal struggles within ourselves. I actually have a second part to this, since we like to chat LOL. My first encounter with Ace was at AIFD symposium in Chicago. I was a first-time attendee and PFDE candidate (professional floral design evaluation). We definately need people like Ace in this industry. The sheer amount of love he has for his "job" (I put that in quotes because of that saying...Love what you do and never work a day in your life!) is amazing. He's a pretty cool guy, be sure to follow him and check out his Instagram and facebook.

I hope you love the interview as much as I did getting to chat. I know I've been a little absent and inconsistent in the passing few months. Thank you for the grace, it has been such a joy sharing this with the world. I am working hard to keep it out there for you all to enjoy.

Numbers, numbers, math, numbers...

Did I totally freak you out? Don't run away. Pretty please!!! I promise you'll like this week's episode. I get to chat with THE Alison Ellis. The flower math gal. She loves her some flower number crunching. 

 The Amazing Alison Ellis of  Floral Artistry  and  Real Flower Business

The Amazing Alison Ellis of Floral Artistry and Real Flower Business

We got to chat about being a florist with integrity and getting to know what it entails to be a florist that offers more than middle of the road service. I really think this is a good episode, for sure if you're maybe newer to the floral industry. There is standard pricing and no, it's not a myth or just order's part of running a business and keeping in business. 

We may not have the glam life, but we have something special, and we work damn hard for it. I throughly enjoyed this chat with Alison. I hope you will too. 

Alison has numerous ways to help you out:

Email templates, workflows, proposal writing, pricing, contract help, A full flower math course and a business course called The Art of Good Business!!!
