LIZ TSUTSUMI-HYPNAR of ENCHANTMENT FLORAL DARES YOU:
If you want to try something to just try it. When I started this business, I never even had the thought that I could be where I am now. Even after a couple of years of doing florals for fun, it just never crossed my mind, but the moment that I tried to create my own business, I was able to do it.
So just giving it all I had was really all it took.I think that you’d be amazed at the things that you can accomplish if you give it your all.
