I was responsible for...
-Keep studio clean -Process Flowers -Take notes during bridal meetings -Make deliveries -Run errands

I accomplished...
I would say my greatest accomplishment is learning how to handle flowers from right when you get them from the whole seller. I never knew how much work went into preparing the flowers and keeping them good until sold.

I learned...
My greatest lesson was on how to run a small business. You have to know who you need to help you and how to manage your time. Can you complete a task on your own or should you hire someone else to do it? Also you have to know when you should be working and when it's appropriate to take a day off to spend time out of the office with family. You have to know when to draw the line for taking orders and when it's ok to say no.

Advice for others...
My advice to future students would be to really ask questions when you are at your internship. Try to know what's going on at all times so you can gain the best experience and most knowledge.
