A Weekly Subscription Designer can work out of a bustling and busy flower shop or right out of a quiet home studio. This leaves a lot of flexibility to go about this career in a way that suits your lifestyle.
Time wise, this designer can choose to offer delivery only on certain days so they don't have to work more than 3 days a week. Although this career can lead to quite a peaceful life, it can be tricky to step away for some down time. In order to take a vacation or a break you'll need to make sure someone will design in your place or you'll need to contact all of your weekly subscribers.
This job doesn't require travel and is great for folks who have kids or responsibilities that keep them at home. It's also a great path for folks who do not have children- it's a very flexible job!
$40,000-$300,000 (and beyond)
What you earn as a Weekly Subscription designer depends on how well you can build relationships within the businesses in your community. A designer can book an annual contract with a hotel and be assured they will make as much as $90k+ that year from that hotel. When a designer is able to book several annual contracts like this, they are able to truly enjoy the security the subscription offers.
