Holly, I had such an amazing and special interview with her... 2 weeks after she lost her mother, if this doesn’t speak passion for the industry, I don’t know what does. Thank you Holly again for powering through and having this special moment with me and sharing your wisdom with our listeners!

Great podcast! Great stories! Truly insightful!

Really enjoyed listen to all episodes so far. Very insightful and Anahit asks really good questions. Even for being outside of floral industry I find 2-3 nuggets in each episode that can be applied in any life scenario.
