In late January I had the opportunity to attend an amazing business workshop at the Grove Park Inn in Asheville, NC. My friend Shanna Skidmore is the beauty and the brains behind this experience that caters to women business owners in creative industries. I was in good company with other floral designers, event planners, photographers, and artists. We spent hours writing our goals and learning how to achieve them while Shanna walked us through business basics and imparted on us many useful tips that blew my mind. I walked away with a sense of empowerment, confidence, and a clear plan- a blueprint for success.
