Flower Shop Owners live a busy lifestyle. Although it may not be "high stress" per se, it is filled with multitasking and daily duties.
Flower Shop Owners can technically control their own schedules (hello, they are the boss), but they have the responsibility to make sure someone is tending the shop. Many have a hard time giving up control and will spend the vast majority of their time at their flower shop.
Within this career path you will find yourself always going, going, going. It's important that you learn how to hone your systems so you can pass the responsibilities onto staff and take a breather.
This career is great for entrepreneurs and creatives who love the artistry of flowers. It's not ideal for folks who have young children, unless you have ample help via childcare, a partner, etc. Being a Flower Shop owner is more doable for those who don't have children or who have older children that are nearing independence.
$40,000-$200,000 (and beyond)
