Tell us if this sounds like you: You know you’re creative and you know you’re talented, but you’ve yet to harness that talent the way you want. You daydream about things like unique flower combinations, never-been-done displays, making your own schedule, and achieving stability in your career—but on your terms. Long story short, you’re wondering how to become a florist but not only that, how to absolutely kill the game as you go.

Or perhaps you’re deep into operating your own floral business and everything is feeling a little redundant. Maybe you want to create more, or could be you’re overwhelmed with too much. Perhaps you’re ready for the next step, but not quite sure what that is and how to get there.

Welcome to your next right thing! Alyssa runs the floral wildly successful company Color Theory Design Co in Portland with her husband, Brian, and their toddler, Django. Together, they’ve created a flourishing community with weekly online classes designed to help creatives learn how to be a florist or build out a floral design business. You’ll find topics like the art of design, business, mindset, and everything necessary to thrive in the floral industry.

Alyssa of Flower Minds teaches how to become a florist

What’s SO perfect about the fact that you’re reading this right now on this day and this hour…is that membership only opens a few times a year. And now is one of those times. Here at Green Wedding Shoes, we are clearly passionate about love and weddings. But we are equally passionate about the people who make up the wedding industry. Entrepreneurs, dreamers, and designers. People who fight for inclusion, who set the creative bar high for all adjacent industries, and who do it all while building their own families and meaningful relationships.

All that to say, we believe in you! You’re worth investing in. And we believe that with Flowering Minds, Alyssa has created a tool that will help you get to where you’re going faster, with a community rallying behind you, and information at your fingertips.

My infantile flower shop is only 4 months old, but I feel like I am presenting like a top-shelf contender in my region. I was so proud of what I have been able to present to potential clients following Alyssa’s classwork. I am also aligning the strategies she teaches regarding social media and business savvy and really look forward to our monthly zoom call. Flowering Minds is a complete package. You will get many times the return on your investment.”

Let. Me. Tell. You. When I say these tutorials have been life-changing… THESE TUTORIALS HAVE BEEN LIFE-CHANGING. As an experienced florist, I was a bit skeptical. I’ve taken courses from other designers before and didn’t learn too much. These videos are to the point and give me so much valuable USEFUL information that has helped to shape my business and growth. I’ve been a subscriber for a while and will continue to be.
