Suppose you start learning floral designs by taking lessons at a floral school, you may complete a certain course and successfully earn practical skills for making various floral decorations from table arrangements to more advanced designs used for wedding decorations or funeral arrangements. After learning flower designs at a school, the next step may be for you to start your own floral shop to sell cut flowers and also completed flower decorations or to start flower decorating services for wedding and funerals whatsoever.
It may be relatively easy to start new business mentioned above as far as you have enough fund required for the start-up of brand new floral business. Buying a floral shop may be one of ways for you to start your floral business. If you buy flower shop that is already operating, you may expect to make actual output (sales revenue and profit) much faster than starting from scratch because the floral shop you purchased already has customers who can quickly bring profit to your shop.
As far as economic situation is good, people are motivated to spend money for buying flowers or gifts at your shop and once in a while they may order wedding flowers from your shop. This kind of situation greatly helps your business make reasonable amount of revenue and profit and it looks like you have no serious problems with continuing your floral business.
However once the dullness starts ruling the market and dismal economic situation continues for a while, people do not want to spend money and they seldom buy cut flowers. In case of holding a wedding party and ceremony, they always try to minimize the budget of weddings, which makes it very difficult for you to make reasonable amount of profit. Once your business is put in this kind of situation, you are obliged to cut running cost of your business and if the situation becomes even more serious, you have to cut even advertising budget of your floral shop. This may put your business in vicious cycle and it will become so difficult for you to continue running your business.
Even if your business cannot bring profit, as far as it is in break-even point, you may continue the operation of your business. However once you start suffering from deficit, you may be eventually obliged to get out of the business. This is the worst scenario which you don’t want to imagine.
What above story tells us is starting new business is relatively easy but continuing its operation with reasonable profit is so difficult. If you have considerable amount of saving at the account of your bank, you may be able to stand a certain period of dismal economic situation. However if you start your business with minimum required fund which can cover the operating cost of your business but cannot allow any savings in your bank account, you may be easily put in the situation where you cannot but declare bankruptcy or winding up your business. In order to avoid this kind of worst scenario, you need to start your business with ample amount of cash flow even if the appearance of your shop does not look so good. It is better to spend money in the area which directly contributes to bringing profit to your floral shop.
