Today we’d like to introduce you to LeeLina Martin.
LeeLina, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
I’m pretty sure it all started for me with a Martha Stewart obsession. I loved everything her and her amazing creative team put together. Some twists and turns later I was being offered a job at a floral event studio. Getting my hands dirty was the best way for me to learn and it still is, I’m learning new things all the time.
We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
Looking back, I wouldn’t really change anything. The events business is hard work and I know for sure that if I didn’t love it, I definitely would not be doing it. It’s backbreaking sometimes, but when I look back, it’s all been worth it and a little more.
So, as you know, we’re impressed with LeeLina Martin Floral – tell our readers more, for example, what you’re most proud of as a company and what sets you apart from others.
After ten years, I still have to pinch myself when someone calls me a florist. When I think of all the places flowers have taken me, all the amazing people I’ve encountered and become good friends with because of flowers, it’s an ethereal feeling I get inside. Being able to translate my client’s feelings and persona with flowers is one of my favorite parts. I tell a story with each flower arrangement.
So, what’s next? Any big plans?
I’ve always been attracted to growth and new ways of doing things. I’ve tried hard to blaze my own trail and I’d like to keep pushing in that direction. It makes for a bumpy ride and depth of character. We can make our plans, but the Lord determines our steps.
