Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Géraldine Julliand, Founder of Dark Capucine, located in Candiac, QC, Canada.
What's your business, and who are your customers?
Dark Capucine is a floral workshop specializing in creating dried flower bells jars. Most of my customers are women, but my products can reach out to everybody despite age and gender.
Tell us about yourself
I made floral creations for my entourage; they always said I should sell them. I decided to trust myself, and that's when Dark Capucine was created. I try through my creations to bring poetry into people's daily lives. I like the idea that what I do brings relief and appeasement in the daily hustle and bustle.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
I am proud to be accepted as a creator in main local events and to be part of the floristry industry despite the fact I am 100% self-taught.
What's one of the hardest things that comes with being a business owner?
To feel sometimes alone in the process of decision-making.
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
- Never be ashamed to ask for help.
- Create a network.
- Be indulgent to yourself.
