Whoa, January is soon approaching and I am preparing to celebrate my first anniversary in business. My Candy Bouquet franchise has had an overwhelming great first year. I dreamed of owning my own business for so many years and here I am an entrepreneur. I am grateful to the team at Candy Bouquet Headquarters for the ongoing support, guidance and love. I have gained personal growth, experience and friendship over the last year. I set out goals for myself when I first opened and I have surpassed them all.

One of my goals was to gain enough experience and confidence to be able to share all I knew with other new franchisees. I did that. My first training session concluded with great success and my trainees opened their door to the public two weeks ago. I completed my goal and again gained more than I thought as I have acquired two beautiful lifelong friendships. We are planning a weekend visit to share our successes. Yah girls!

I was attracted to Candy Bouquet because it allowed me to use my own creativity. With the fundaments in bouquet making that I was taught, I added my own twist which resulted in my bouquets flying off the shelf! My Candy Bouquet shop recently received the 2011 Bridges to Better Business Award issued by our city in recognizing new business that have demonstrated innovation, creativity and entrepreneurial excellence. Yay Me!

One year down and I am looking forward to many, many more years to follow with the Candy Bouquet Family. I love my store and my customers. I wake up every morning embracing a new day and planning how I can challenge myself. This year I am setting new goals and am looking forward to starting my new year training two new staff members and aiming to grow bigger and better.

Wishing You All Smiles & Sweetness.
