Episode 05 – The Houseplants – House Fur Happy Hour

The Podcast

During Episode 05 of House Fur Happy Hour, we cover a broad range of topics all relating to houseplants; but more importantly we talk about how it is important to have something that occupies you outside of your job.

If you are a houseplant owner or just love houseplants (or want to someday have houseplants), this episode is for you! If you have ever been called a workaholic, this episode is also for you!

I personally know how your career can consume you. I will openly admit that I do struggle with life-work balance; but I am significantly better than I was a few years ago. For a long time Studio 29 (our photography business) defined me … and my world became very narrow. I constantly thought about my work no matter what I was doing or who I was with. It ultimately consumed me my every decision and thought. Everything I did revolved around the business; I gave myself no breaks.

Houseplants basically saved my life, outside of work! Having plants is a great extracurricular activity for me and it is completely separate from the business. It calms me, teaches me patience, and it makes me really happy when I see a new leaf or new growth.
