In this episode I speak with John Tabis, owner and founder of Bouqs, an online flower delivery company. He talks about how what started as a way to highlight the positive qualities of his friend’s flower farm in South America evolved into a desire to change the entire floral industry. John opens his heart and shares his experiences with balancing business, family and personal survival. He talks about investors, disrupting the floral industry, challenges in business and the power of questioning yourself.
