Jim McCann, founder and chairman of shares about how he grew, celebrating mistakes, and balancing family with work.

Jim McCann started out in social services moonlighting as a bartender until he opened his first retail florist shop in Manhattan.  More than 40 years later, he continues to change the way we connect, express, and celebrate.

We discuss his early start in business with a young family juggling work and fatherhood; eventually growing into a massive publicly-owned company.  Jim shares from both his heart and his head, making for a vulnerable yet informative conversation.
