I'm Andi Gretzinger, owner of North Wood Blooms and your Wood Flower Coach. I am here to be the resource I always wished I had at the beginning of my own wood flower journey! I always wanted a business coach, artistic mentor, marketing strategist, and accountability partner who could actually understand what it is that I do as a wood flower florist.

A Wood Flower Florist Specialist

I choose to work specifically with other wood flower florists because I was you. I am you. I am just a little farther along in my journey.

Here to Help

Let me share a little secret with you... I used to despise asking for help. I mean, really, truly despise it. Blame it on my personality, my upbringing, or my stubborn streak – I've got a bit of it all. But when I set sail on the voyage of entrepreneurship, I quickly realized the incredible strength in seeking assistance, tapping into valuable resources, and embracing the fact that it's okay not to have all the answers. (That one took a while to learn... let's be honest.) Nowadays, I'm not shy about asking for help. Yep, I might still cringe a bit, but it sure beats getting lost on the winding road of stubbornness.

Probably much like you, I stumbled into the world of wood flowers by accident and even started my journey into business ownership was a delightful twist of fate. Who would've thought that my personal fascination with this new, exciting medium would resonate so deeply with others? Can you relate?

Embracing Entrepreneurial Spirit

Thanks to the unwavering support of my husband, who has a solid business background and a role in our local Economic Development Center, I found myself enrolling in an enlightening program called the Entrepreneurial Training Program. It was a game-changer, equipping me with all the tools and wisdom I needed to craft a solid business plan and set my entrepreneurial spirit on fire. Did this happen to you yet? If it hasn't, let me be your official gateway drug friends!

Oddly enough, I am not here to give you cookie cutter advice or to provide a blanket statement that is going to work for you with any sort of guarantee (oh, how I wish that existed!)

In the world of small business, it is a unique path. I have a plethora of experiences to draw upon, and I will be sharing all of my expertise, training and knowledge with you, but more-often than telling you what to do or how to do it, I will give insight and ask you many questions to reflect on where you are, where you came from and provide resources and ideas to get you to where you want to go. I'll be a coach giving you the hard advice on the sideline, and the cheerleader in the stands urging you to work ON your business as much as you work IN your business.

I'm all about the "woo!" and the work it takes to achieve our goals - and if you're in need of a positive vibe mixed with a little kick in the hind-end to get you to the next level, you're in the right place.

Let's bloom together 🌸
