As we begin this new chapter of our entrepreneurial journey, I would like to start from the beginning. Let’s start with the name of our blog, “The Learning Tree”. For years, my grandparents owned a convenience store where I now call home to my boutique and flower shop. Each day, as the sun would fade, my grandfather’s friends would arrive to have an afternoon beer and unwind from a long day beneath the shady limbs of an old pecan tree. They would show up each day, with new stories of the glory days or breaking news from our small town. After a couple hours, lots of laughs, and a six-pack later, the men would pack up and head out. As the years past, we nicknamed the old tree “The Learning Tree” for all of the down-home lessons and stories that were told beneath it.
