Nature is one of the four keys to unlock the #HeartspokenLife. I want to shine a spotlight on the work of Paloma Teppa, a young Argentina-born entrepreneur who is making the world she wants by connecting her clients with Nature.
Paloma Teppa harnesses the power of nature
Even though this video and interview with Paloma Teppa is partly a promotion for GoDaddy, I was inspired by the way she has recognized the deep need we humans have for more exposure to the natural world. She has made the power of Nature the innovative centerpiece of her successful business, Plant The Future, “a nature-inspired biophilic design studio, plant boutique, and botanic art gallery based in Miami, Florida.”
Thoughtful quotes from this interview:
“Plants breathe out; we breathe in.”
“Plant the Future came about, first, because of my need to have peace. I realized that for me, peace comes when I am surrounded in nature, plants and animals.”
“Plants are for everybody. We need that love. We need that happiness. And plants don’t make any distinction of people, religions, sex, color or skin — nothing. So we learn from nature.”
“Mother Nature is my biggest inspiration. I learn from nature, how things grow, how nature co-exists with other living creatures…In a garden, you have the secrets of your life. So if we can connect people with a garden, we can connect people with their own soul.”
How does our work serve the world?
How amazing to run a business that helps her customers connect with their own soul! It begs the question from every entrepreneur, every writer…how can we use our work to make the world we want?
When asked how she would advise others to follow their dream, Teppa replied, “It is the stronger and the harder path to take, but it’s the only way that you will see the light.”
