I’ve been SO ready to release this episode with Anthony Pedrotti because he’s AWESOME! And he’s promoting his venue and his open house on November 14th at Pedrotti’s Ranch in Helotes, Texas.
But Anthony talks about growing up with a family of entrepreneurs and what it’s like to step back into the family business. And how he’s added his own dimension to the business since he’s stepped in…while still respecting the blood, sweat and tears that his family put in before him.
Pedrotti’s rounds the 25 year mark this year. So congrats to them and this amazing milestone. And thanks for talking with us here at the HUB!
Lizzette was WONDERFUL! She talked about how her love for flowers blossomed (see what I did there?!?!) She talks about her balance between home & business and the sacrifices she has made to make sure she was 100% ready to dive head first into building this business.
I loved having her at the studio. I hope you love her too - go check out her website at https://fromhisgardenflowers.com/. And give her a good rating on FB and IG!!
