I’m the “nice” lady, but the one and only Debra Lee Baldwin showed me what a gem she is!  

I asked the guru, or queen of succulents as she’s known in the succulent world for her advice on how to get my business started.  I have corresponded with her in the past, and she’s been very forthcoming and helpful, so I used the old adage “you don’t get what you don’t ask for,” and she took the time to compose a thoughtful email on how to get my business going!  She included so much good information in it with names of people and their companies that I most admire in the field, it also has a lot of good information on starting your own business.  It was so nice of her to share!  I’m a bit relieved that she chose to publish the information because I can share it as well.

Click below for the article in Gardens Gone Wild which contains a wealth of information on starting your own business.  This advice happens to be directed towards succulent design, but it contains valuable information for anyone who is just starting their business.
