Those of you who know me may think the title of this post may be a little odd. But hear me out. Because my florist business is a side hustle and not my daytime job, I have a very hard time saying “I’m a Florist” when someone asks what I do for work. I clearly state the company I work for and what I do, but then there is this awkward moment on how to approach my side hustle. To be honest, since it is my side hustle, I never knew if I could actually state that I am a florist. I mean, I went to classes and received a certificate stating that I’m a florist. So why can’t I say it?
Recently, I realized this about myself…how I shelved that part of me. Self promotion not being a strong suit of mine didn’t help the matter either. However I have acknowledged it and have promised myself to do better. Then today, I started a new book (via Audible) called Atomic Habits by James Clear. One of the many eye-opening things he states is that you have to identify and basically own the person you want to be. Totally generalizing what was said, but it’s the gist of it (or what I took away from it). Isn’t it ironical (I know that’s not the correct word), that I had just been thinking this and now here was this expert telling me the same thing…reinforcing that my thoughts were correct. (Side note: I highly recommend the book Atomic Habits. As I stated, I just started it today, but already I’ve gotten alot of great ideas and new ways of changing habits.)
So this is me stating it…I AM A FLORIST!!!
Now that I’ve made that statement…come visit my social media sites (my attempt at self promotion). Like, share, or send me an email just to say “hi”! Even better…tell me who you are!!!
