The reality of funding your own business, with Christina Stembel, founder and CEO of Farmgirl Flowers

Christina Stembel's origin story for her business, Farmgirl Flowers, is amazing: She launched her floral business with nothing more than a high school degree and $50K in savings. Over the past decade, she's bootstrapped the company to a team of over 200 employees with an annual revenue of over $30M. This week on Girlboss Radio, we hear from Christina on how she taught herself to become an entrepreneur, the benefits and drawbacks of being self-funded, and how she combats the loneliness that comes with being an entrepreneur. Tune in for plenty of wisdom, wherever you listen to podcasts.
