We had the good fortune of connecting with Sandra Chahayed and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Sandra, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
My thought process was simple. I Have been in the floral Field for 15 years. I new I wanted a career in the Medical Field since I was younger. I thought since working in the floral industry and seeing my passion for it. I decided to act on that passion of mine and open a Shop. It was a simple decision because I new that in order to advance and be something great I would have to move forward and take a risk. I also had the support and love of my family who encouraged me to pursue my dreams. But like anything new in life it can be challenging and hard. It takes long hours and financial stress to make a business grow. 4 years later and Floral Expression By Sandra still Continues to grow and be better then before,

What should our readers know about your business?
What Sets me apart from other People in the same field as me is that I pay close attention to what my Customers want. I treat each customer as if they are family. Hard work, passion and dedication to what I love along with love and support from my family. That is what got me to where I am. It wasn’t easy like anything in life. But I wouldn’t say it was very difficult either. You just have to have an open mind set and say to yourself “I can and I will”. Keep believing and anything is possible big or small. What I am most proud of is how much I have grown as a person. I am excited to see what the future holds for myself and my Business. What I want he world to know is you can do anything you set your heart and mind to. Never give up no matter how hard things get. My business and myself strive to be the best we can be.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I dedicate this Shout out to my Parents, My siblings , My siblings in law, My Niece’s and Nephew’s. Without them I would not have reached this point. I would not be where I am today if it wasn’t for their love and support. They stand by me and are always there for me even when I don’t ask for the help. They push me to be the best version of myself. Even in a pandemic they came together to make sure floral expression stays as successful as it is. I could not and would not be able to do this without them.
