I use everything I’ve learned in B-School starting up my very own Cut Flower Farm, where I grow mainly dahlias – in Alaska I might add. What started as a dream I’d do “after” I made it big has become a profitable, thriving business. Before B-School I bounced around from one online business to the next trying to find that one business that I could help other plus fill my heart and my bank account at the same time.
When I sold my first bouquet I was hooked! Seeing the customer’s face light up or a bride with tears telling you her flowers are JUST what she envisioned.
My first season I profited a little over $2000 — which isn’t too bad since we only have a growing season of about three months. The next season we doubled that. And this next year I expect to reach 6 figures as I’ve added an engagement photo and wedding destination venue. I’ve also managed to keep my business debt free which fills me with great pride.
B-School gave me the roadmap to get here.
