A Seasonal Business
In a market where capital is basically limited to the money you see in your bank account, a low cost business model is essential to enjoying your new business startup. Seasonal busineses that do not require a fixed location and annual overhead costs can provide a legitimate option for this.
When times are tight, so are wallets. It is important to choose a business model that fits all budgets and economic situations. Great businesses will be viable during recessions and during booms. Something like flowers makes sense in that if Mom wants flowers for Easter, Mom will probably get flowers for Easter. Starting a new business is many times the most freeing and empowering thing that someone can do.
Exploring franchises and business opportunities is always a recommendation for people who have never run their own business before. Look carefully at the industries, available capital and your capacity to manage employees and the complexities of the operation. All of these things will have an impact on your success or failure in the new business venture.
