Talking Career Fulfillment, Connection, and Listening to Your Voice on The Flower Podcast

I sat in my usual podcast recording spot (my closet!) with my earbuds in, a blanket on my lap, and sparkling water in a mason jar next to me. I was ready to talk to Scott, host of The Flower Podcast. Florists are near and dear to me. You may not know this, but I used to be a wedding planner and, a year into my business, I decided to add floral design as a service.

That meant I had a lot of learning to do!

All I knew about floral design was that flowers are beautiful and I loved the idea of creating some of the physical beauty of the wedding. I clearly needed a long-term crash course in all things floral design.

The local floral community welcomed me in! A florist invited me over for tea, another let me tag along on some weddings, another talked to me about balancing motherhood with being a floral designer, another became my teacher. Those relationships, conversations, and women continue to inspire me.

So, I was thrilled to be a guest on The Flower Podcast!

Florist or not, you’ll get something from this episode. Scott and I talked about career fulfillment, the paradox of my approach to career, having boundaries, the importance of connection, and more. So given the chance to be on The Flower Podcast, I said yes! Here are three snippets:

  • The only voice that really matters is your own

  • Unplug to stay connected to yourself

  • There’s a difference between identifying with what we do and who we are
