A New Project

6 months ago my wife quite her job and started a floral design company with her best friend. She had been working as a landscape designer for a firm. Although she liked the work sometimes and loved the commute 2 blocks away she didn't like doing the same thing every day day in day out and being inside so much.6 months ago my wife quite her job and started a floral design company with her best friend. She had been working as a landscape designer for a firm. Although she liked the work sometimes and loved the commute 2 blocks away she didn't like doing the same thing every day day in day out and being inside so much. So she after forming a plan she quit. They offered her more money but she stuck with her plan. Starting a small business is scary. A lot of people want to work for themselves but it takes  lot of faith. It was also spooky for both of us to have "unreliable" income. Now that she doesn't have her real job she has a more flexible schedule but I bet she works the same amount. There's always something to do and a lot of time you aren't actually getting paid. In small business you never want to actually add up your hours worked. It's better no to know! Here is a link to her and Vanessa's website. Wish them luck! It's the sister company to West Side Lighting-Modern West Floral Design:
