Hey there, fellow florists! We're diving into something super important – how to make the most of what you've got. Imagine this: By using your current resources wisely, you can watch your floral dreams flourish and your profits bloom. 🌼

You know that feeling when you open the box of flowers you just got in to process for the week and you see those gorgeous sweet peas you had forgotten you ordered? It's like discovering hidden treasure! Well, the same goes for your business resources – they're like little gems waiting to be polished.

1. Recognizing the Obvious:

Sometimes, you're so close to your business that you might not see all the sparkles it holds. Take a step back and give your resources a good look. Those flowers, vases, and creative minds can work wonders! Whether it's an amazing ability to create amazing seasonal bouquets for your floral shop, or extending your floral business to include a rental side which lets other florists and event planners rent out your vases and tablescape items for their events.

Opportunities are lurking everywhere, ready to boost your business into the floral stratosphere. 

2. Unconventional Blossoms:

Why wait for the magic to happen? Be the magician! Breakthroughs are like crafting your own magic spells – they're all about finding fresh ways to do things and stumbling upon cool discoveries. Imagine this: A bouquet inspired by a famous painting or a floral workshop that's more like a garden party. Let your creativity run wild, and your team can bring in some spellbinding ideas too!

Here are some other examples to inspire you:

  1. Turning leftover petals into scented potpourri products.
  2. Creating "Bouquet DIY Kits" for customers to enjoy arranging at home.
  3. Hosting a "Blossom & Brunch" event, where customers craft bouquets and enjoy a brunch spread.

When attracting or strategizing for a breakthrough there are some key objectives you need to keep in mind. They are:

  1. Look for the hidden opportunity in every situation;
  2. Look for at least one cash windfall for your business every three months;
  3. The more value for your client, the better your breakthrough;
  4. Create multiple streams of an idea to find the best breakthroughs;
  5. Effective breakthroughs remove all risk or resistance.

3. Facing the Floral Music:

Okay, now it's time to take a deep breath and face the facts. Some things might not be working as they should. It's like pruning a plant to help it grow stronger. Analyze your systems and processes to see what's blossoming and what's not. Think of it as spring cleaning for your business garden.

Questions to Tackle:

  • Why did you start this floral business in the first place?
  • Which flower arrangements made everyone's heart skip a beat?
  • Why do customers love your floral creations now?
  • How did you charm customers when you first began?
  • Which marketing efforts brought in success before?

Once you've gathered these insights, you'll be ready to work on those weak spots and turn them into strengths.
