Startinga flower arranging instructional business can be fun, and easilyoperated from home. The business requires only a minimal investment toget things rolling. Students are currently paying as much a $50 to $75for one three-hour course, making this a potentially very profitablebusiness venture. Building alliances with flower shops, garden centers,and retail gift stores is a great way to market the business initially,as these types of businesses can act as a referral source or even ajoint venture partner, with the flower arranging courses beingconducted nights and weekends from their locations. Securing only tennew students per week, and charging a mere $60 for the flower arrangingcourse, will create business revenues of more than $30,000 per year.
