Living the dream - how to plan a successful lifestyle business and make it work....join this workshop and make a realistic plan to turn your dream of working for yourself from home from fantasy to reality.
Georgie Newbery has been running her business Common Farm Flowers from home for eleven years and not only has she learned a great deal about how to make a business which pays what it needs to, but also how to keep that business ‘lifestyle.’
In this session she’ll talk about how she took the idea to grow flowers for sale and systematised that idea so that a) the business makes enough to keep a family of four (objective 1!) but b) allows her to make a life which suits that family of four.
Her business has a very strong Planet before Profit ethic, which needs sustaining despite the costs, she has to keep re-evaluating what she likes and doesn’t like to do so that there are strong boundaries within which she can be very creative, but which prevent her from spinning off into too many directions and so becoming a busy fool.
Georgie will share her ideas for strategising and systematising so that she’s always free to create, while being confident that she’ll be able to pay the bills at the end of the month.
This workshop will take place on zoom in a small group (maximum of 15 participants) and will last approximately two hours, including plenty of time for questions and answers. Following the session, participants will be sent workshop notes and a recording of the workshop.
Most of our flowers and foliage are grown on our flower farm in Somerset. During some of the winter months we order flowers from our flower farming friends in other parts of the country. We only ever use British grown flowers. Our flowers are cut from the farm fresh each morning, before being arranged and sent for next day delivery.
Because our flowers are picked fresh each day, each of our bouquets is totally unique. Although we can't guarantee a particular flower or colour scheme in your bouquet please let us know if you have any particular requests and we will do our best to meet them. We promise that your bouquet will be fresh and beautiful.
