As a florist, you’re job is one of the most creative. Your rich pallet of colors and textures of flowers and accessories surround you with creative potential every day. Where others may see debris, you see beautiful arrangements. You can make magnificent designs from just about anything. Creativity is who you are!
The other less creative aspects of business like accounting and human resources can cloud your creative mojo. So, you may need to get reacquainted with your creative self, from time to time, and a fun way to go about it is to treat your creative self like you would a lover.
