As you run around like crazy this week for Mother’s Day, try to remember…
1. Big work for big payoff
Remember to tell yourself, while you’re scrambling to keep organized and move fast enough, that this is one of the biggest holidays of the year for florists. So while the work may stretch you to your limits, the reward will be great for your business.
Some people out there only buy flowers a couple times a year: Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, and whatever day they happen to be in big enough trouble with their spouse. Make sure to take some time during the rush to cement yourself in their minds as their new go-to florist.
3. It’ll all be over on Sunday
Despite all the benefits of big holiday rushes, it’s no secret that the amount of work you’re doing is exhausting. Remember that you’re almost there and then you can enjoy some well-deserved rest on Monday.
4. Thank your employees
Employees are stressed too! You are a team and without your team, your Mother’s Day doesn’t work. Keep everyone going strong with a special lunch or dinner. And remember to give a heart-felt Thank You to each employee when it is over, they deserve it!
5. Stop and smell the roses
And of course, don’t forget why you became a florist in the first place. Working with flowers and creating arrangements that will bring a smile to the faces of mothers in your neighborhood should feel good, so enjoy it!
Have a Great Mother’s Day!
