My one wish for my community of floralpreneurs this year is that you STOP worrying about the competition.
Click to watch today’s quick tips on “eliminating the competition”:
People talk about finding “ideal clients”, but it’s rarely defined.
The simplest definition of an ideal customer is: someone you want to work with over and over and over again.
You may have more than 1 ideal customer (multiple income streams sometimes have multiple customer avatars).

We dive into this very topic in Week 1 of The Art of Good Business, which starts LIVE Jan. 8th.
You don’t have to join me live, but I will be here every Friday in January to walk you through the course.
They are willing to pay what you charge.
They love your website.
They love you/your personality and/or your sales staff.
They get to yes, easily.
In order to make your social media attract the right customers, you need a clear idea of who you’re actually taking to!
Ideal customers say, “this is for me…she’s saying what I’m thinking!”
You want your ideal customers to read your sales copy and think “yes, this is for me”.
If not, I can help!
Thanks for taking the time to check out my blog and watch my tips.
Keep doing beautiful work, Floralpreneur®.
With love from me to you,

I read this article last week, Why your Instagram Engagement Kinda Sucks Right Now, and I thought some of the floralpreneurs I know and love would find it interesting. I’ve heard complaints about a lack of engagement over the last several months and this certainly helps to explain why!
Now, while it’s frustrating to think that Mark Zuckerberg seems to control the fate of your business marketing, in truth, he does not!
After nearly 2 decades in business, my aim is to focus on building a brand with integrity. You can call it brand integrity or integrity branding, but what it boils down to is “what people say about your business when you’re not in the room”.
My friend, Susan McLeary, invited me to sit down for a live chat on Instagram to talk about what it means to have an integrity brand and align your business values with your personal beliefs.
Susan has built a well-loved brand that’s followed by many, because of her willingness to show up authentically and consistently share her creative vision with the world. These are essential qualities of an Integrity Brand, of course, and there’s a whole lot of practice that’s required as you continually “put yourself out there” to share your work and your branding message with your customers.
