flor&order started out as a blog where I would share my tips and tricks for being organised. Throughout the years, I was approached by people wanting help and I realised it could be more than that, it could be a business! When I took the leap to make it into a business, I was nervous but also excited. I expanded across social media platforms and moved from Canberra to Melbourne – here’s a quick snapshot of that story.

In this blog, you will find a variety of topics that revolve around productivity, being organised and managing your time. A regular series I have developed is called “3 Questions with…” as I talk and learn from other small businesses.

Do you have any suggestions, queries or comments? Why not email me at Christie@florandorder.com and let’s start a conversation.
