You’ll hear how he’s deciding what direction his business can and will take. We’re chatting about sustainability, as this is a major passion point for TJ. He’s giving us a broad definition of what sustainable floristry is and all of the aspects it includes. There is much that goes into a sustainable floral business, and TJ is giving many practical examples of how you could take steps to make your floral business more sustainable as well. Finally, we all know that keeping one’s business organized is vital to efficiency and success. But sometimes, this is difficult to do—especially for those who are a one man or woman show.
