    Diversity...

    Diversity...

    It is true, "Unity" is what's going to make a change... but in order to unite we need to accept "Diversity" at its core.

    "It is time for parents to teach young people early on that in diversity there is beauty and there is strength" ~Maya Angelou
    And make no mistakes, I do think that all lives matter, of course they do, but black lives matter right now more than ever... it is the house on fire... ~Anahit

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.
