the FLORAL DESIGN EDUCATOR
You are highly experienced in the floral design field and have an abundance of new ideas popping into your head daily. You don't desire to bust out the same designs over and over and you want to share your never-ending ideas with your community.
So, what does a Floral Design Educator do?
Educators find different routes to share their ideas, their specific strengths and their skills with florists who desire to expand their design knowledge. These routes can be through tangible classes, books, pdf's or online courses.

Floral Educators can choose the frequency with which they want to work, but often they can't turn their brains off so they work way more than necessary. They can choose to collaborate if they desire to socialize or they can teach solo if they thrive in solitude.
Floral Educators can have very flexible schedules and this is a major perk. They may find themselves very busy trying to connect with new communities and are asked to participate in summits and collaborative education projects, but it is up to them to accept or take the time off.
Regarding travel, this career can certainly include travel or it can be completed from home (virtually).
This is a fantastic career for folks with or without kids. This path is a great fit for a variety of lifestyles, with the requirements that you have ample and genuine floral design experience, understand how to communicate your knowledge and are ready to mentor. It's all about leaning into your strengths and hiring to fill the gaps, maybe you need help with the technical side, maybe you need help with marketing, find the right supports that allow you to focus on your strengths and flourish.
