Today we’d like to introduce you to Chanel Lee.
Chanel, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
I’ve always had a love for flowers even as a kid. I started making centerpieces and home décor pieces for my family members. At the time, it was just a hobby. However, I did have dreams of having my own shop. I was told it was a crazy idea, so I decided to seek council from local florists in the community. Unfortunately, no one would hire or mentor me. I never gave up and decided to educate myself and try to perfect my craft. Three years later, my dreams are now a reality. I’m so proud of myself!
Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
It was definitely shaky in the beginning. The hard part was learning the skills and techniques required to become a successful florist. I had a lot of setbacks and lost a lot of money in the beginning, not knowing anything about the business side of things, I had to learn a lot of lessons the hard way but there’s no lesson like a bought lesson; the road has gotten much smoother since then. I have a lot of clients, friends and family who are supportive of what I’m doing. They see my passion and the love that I put into my art. I couldn’t be more grateful.

What moment in your career do you look back most fondly on?
