Today we’re visiting with Amy Dunlap, owner of Stemz, Inc. in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.

Amy never could seem to avoid the draw of flower shop jobs in high school and college. After studying horticulture in college and getting a Masters degree in Agricultural Education and Communication, she opened a home-based floral design business to service weddings and events and eventually bought a building to house her business.

Following her intuition, Amy decided to close her shop in 2018. But she didn't sit idle for long before pursuing a new floral endeavor - creating Stemz, a platform to help strengthen the local cut flower supply chain by cultivating connectivity between US farms & floral creatives.

Join us as we talk with Amy about:

  • Taking the first steps toward bringing a large and complicated vision to life
  • The advantages of having co-founders who represent different facets of the floral profession
  • Understanding the importance of distribution in making local flowers accessible to florists
  • The challenge of building supply consistency when selling local flowers to florists
  • Adding Stemz staff members who can build relationships with designers and learn their needs
  • The importance of loving the problem your business is trying to solve
  • Building a business slowly so you can adapt the model based on the results you're getting
  • Editing your services to avoid distractions that keep you from growing and staying true to your message
