If you are wondering whether or not you should learn floral designs, you should think about the value of skill you will get from taking lessons of flower arranging. Once you get the reasonable level of skills, this will become your lifetime property without any doubt. Unlike other properties like cars or financial assets, this property cannot be exposed to any risk of losing the value regardless of the market situation.
PLUS no matter how often you use this property, it will never depreciate in its value unlike your car. Furthermore you do not have to spend even a single penny to fix or repair and also no regular maintenance is required to keep it as your personal property.
Flower arranging skill helps make your life enriched no matter in what kind of manner you use it, for hobby or for business. If you are business savvy and can make the best use of this property, you MIGHT have opportunities of doing floral business which MIGHT help you make money.
I personally think that working on flower arrangement as a hobby is a very ideal way in using this property because average salary level of employed florists is not very beautiful compared with salary level of other major industries according to the information from internet. Nevertheless many people are interested in getting a job in floral industry. Why ? I guess the reason behind this is these people love flowers. As far as they can do things they like, some people do not mind the amount of income. Like enthusiastic musicians, even though they cannot expect a beautiful salary, they love music and they love a job as a musician.
Getting back to my personal thought, in order to live a decent life, we need minimum required amount of income. If they are confident in earning beautiful income from a floral designing job or floral shop owner, it may be worthwhile to challenge it. Although absolute number of people who are successful in making very beautiful money by running a floral shop (or working as a floral designer), there is no knowing what is going to happen. It largely depends on their business sense as well as enthusiastic attitude and passion for doing business. If they are not confident in getting beautiful income from a job of floral artist or owner florist OR if they do not want to run a risk, they had better continue flower arrangement purely as a valuable hobby.
I am pretty sure most people who are successful as a floral shop owner or wedding floral decorator, they must be business savvy. Without a good business sense, it is hard to make money no matter what kind of business they do. This is my frank comment but I do not want to discourage you to learn floral designs. As a matter of fact, I know people who are successful in running a floral shop. Those kind of people are very task oriented and they know what kind of services in what kind of manner will bring profit.
