Turn Your Hobby into a Career with Commercial Greenhouses
The great Chinese philosopher Confucius once said, “If you enjoy what you do, you’ll never work another day in your life.”
For many of us, the dream of someday owning our own business has been burning inside for years. We know we would like to own a business someday, but we’re a little fuzzy on the details and aren’t sure exactly what we would like to do.
If you’re a gardening enthusiast (and if you’re reading this, that’s a pretty safe bet), why not consider turning something you love into a profitable business which will be a blessing not only to you, but to gardeners throughout your area? We’re talking, of course, about building commercial greenhouses and starting your own nursery.
While the costs of building a commercial greenhouse can vary considerably depending on how large your green house will be and what features you will need, you’re likely to be surprised at just how little it really costs to build commercial greenhouses, all things considered.
If you’re willing and able to do the labor yourself you can shave a considerable amount off the costs of building commercial greenhouses. Best of all, as a business investment, a significant portion of the costs of building and maintaining your commercial greenhouses is tax deductible.
If you want to start small in your new venture, you might consider starting out with a limited line of products. Rather than trying to grow a little of everything, specialize in a few types of plants. For example, you could specialize in flowers. Or, if you want an even more narrow focus, you could build a commercial greenhouse which focuses on water gardens, butterfly gardens, or any number of other novelty garden concepts.
Ideally, you should tailor your commercial green houses to the type of gardening you most enjoy. Not only will running your own business be more fun that way, but chances are you already have a network of friends who share your gardening interests. If you do, they make the ideal first customers. Of course, as your enterprise grows, you will most likely want to add plants and other products which are the most in demand in your area.
Running a commercial greenhouse takes little more than a love of gardening and a willingness to work. Much of what you need to know, you already know by virtue of the gardening you’ve already done. Of course, there are some things you will need to educate yourself about, but you will have no problem finding all the information you need about running a successful commercial green house between the Internet, gardening magazines and your local library.
