About the Episode:

Meet Melissa Hessney Masters — the founder of Tanglebloom and the creator of the Tanglebloom Cabin

Melissa has always been creative. 

Growing up in the fingerlakes region of New York,  she found herself mesmerized by natural beauty — whether it be wildflowers or waterfalls, Melissa was transfixed by the innate purity of the natural world. 

She started her first business when she was in high school, selling hand-sewn clothes on the internet and in the parking lots of Phish concerts. 

And while she couldn’t have guessed it then, this was the first stepping stone in her journey to become a flower farmer and short-term-rental entrepreneur. 

Tune in to hear the enthralling story of how Melissa brought her wedding and event flower business, Tanglebloom, as well as Vermont’s most wish-listed Airbnb, to life.
