From student to student the purpose of learning floral arrangements is different. While the majority of people learn floral designs just for hobby, some people do have a very clear goal of doing floral business after successfully earning flower arranging skills.
People who learn for hobby want to earn skills for enjoying flower arranging just for fun. It is not necessary to set up any budget and they do not need to make any substantial amount of investment for starting a floral business such as running their own floral shop etc. In this sense as far as they learn floral arrangement just for hobby, they don’t need to run any risk at all.
As mentioned above, in order to do floral business, it is necessary to make a minimum amount of investment for starting floral business EXCEPT FOR THE CASE of working for a florist as one of employees. If the type of business is running a floral shop, they have to find a place of a shop no matter whether they buy or rent it. In addition, they need to buy various equipment and properties such as refrigerator, van and cash register as well as make a website introducing a shop online etc. etc.
Since my floral school specializes in teaching floral arrangement and concentrating on HOW TO MAKE FLORAL DECORATIONS, we are not directly involved in teaching know-how and secret for how to open and run a floral business.
