    2. I know that you’ve had a ton of success at this point in your career, but I would love to start off at the bottom and the very beginning of your career. What was your life like growing up and where did you grow up?
      1. I grew up in Conway Arkansas and was in a really bad car accident when I was little.

      1. I bought a wedding business. I kept hearing that you just have to work your butt off and not reap any rewards for 5 years and I believed it. I didn’t know that you could have a family life and a successful business.
      2. I wasn’t making any money at all. There was nothing to justify my hours of work.
      3. I realized that I couldn’t do any work until the shop closed.

      7. I wanted to utilize the slow season

      1. When you circum to others’ whims and requests, you give them your time and your freedom.
    7. Jessica, you didn’t make a profit for 5 years…why do you believe this was?
      1. I bought into the thought that I couldn’t and I was not supposed to. 
      2. I was so busy working in the business and being reactive. 
    8. Jessica, I read that your husband fell ill and became bedridden for a year and that you had to take control and provide for your family of 5…how did you pull this off?
    9. How did you go about funding your floral design business?
