Next week is National Entrepreneurship Week, a congressionally chartered week dedicated to empowering entrepreneurship across the United States, and the IDRS Acorn Project wants to celebrate and encourage entrepreneurship in Indian Country.

On Friday, February 17th at 11am (PT), they’ll finish off the week with an interview of a successful floral entrepreneur in Oklahoma. Whitney Virden (Comanche, Kiowa, Cherokee) started a floral design business with no money by foraging and focusing on wildflowers. She has grown that business to open a brick and mortar store on the Cherokee Reservation to now open her second store on the Osage Reservation, right next to the famous food blogger and media personality Ree Drummond.

Come find out Whitney’s story and hear her tips for business that will hopefully help you launch or grow your business and continue to move forward on your entrepreneurial journey.
