How With A Click My Small Flower Business Became Big......

Hi, I have an interesting story to share it with all of you. I can’t refuse it man, it is so damn astonishing.

Well, in short it goes like this: I needed some money to add assortment to my florist shop, and I got it online after almost going mad looking around for funding.

You must be questioning; what’s the big business deal in getting a loan? People with small business organization get funding from banks and all….day in-day out. Well read on………

I live in New York. This city breathes, eats, and sleeps money, dude. But God help you, if you are not a good enough deal as per the money guys here. I possess a small florist store here, and by nature florist business is not reasoned as good investing especially for working capital funding, as flowers perish quickly. You just might get funding for the working capital expansion, as banks take the establishment as collateral.

That apart, those complete suits make me really discomfited.

I wanted to add some alien South East Asian assortment to my offers. They cost a bomb if you want them fresh enough. Obviously, I needed money, and banks and other loaners were out. Not that I didn’t effort but they were big time skeptical and asked for guarantees, security, hell lot of documentation and what not. On the top of it--that horrific interest rate!

I was at my witticisms’ end. I almost deferred the idea. Then my moneyman, God bless him, asked me to go for Small Business Funding. Business cash advance is not a loan and you can refund it directly from the credit card sales, and the terms and conditions to qualify are rather simple. You can get funding evening if you have heaped up bad credit ratings.

So I looked around, and guess what……I acquired cash in nine days flat. I qualified as I was perpetually making sales worth $5000 per month, much more than the minimum $4000. All I required to do: to fill up an online form on

Inside next few months sales just about doubled and now I am thinking of spreading out into a chain. And I got myself a super costly suit, just the kind financiers respect. So; Mr. Banker………now try to deny me loan.

Nice post. I want to run my own business soon, so I'll remember this one. I know it'll be challenging, so I can use all the help and advice I can get. I've been thinking about buying a business lately instead of starting one from scratch. Maybe a franchise? I don't know. Do you have any suggestions or advice? Thanks!

@Angela - I can tell you this now... Running a business will be tough. I'm sure there will be days you'll want to give up, but if you stick through it and persevere, becoming an entrepreneur will be worth it. That being said, there are a lot of resources on-line if you're looking to buy a business instead of starting one from scratch. I know there's this site called, and it's like this on-line global marketplace where you can buy or sell a business. You can also use it to find a lender, broker, etc.
I also highly suggest checking out books and magazines, since they're generally up-to date with information. Local small business groups are also good because you can network, and they can update you on the area you plan on doing business.
Good luck!
