Amanda Ware earns about $1,000 dollars for each tree she decorates. Her company, Hello Holidays, states that she is an official Christmas ambassador. It takes Amanda 2 to 5 hours to decorate a tree and she admits that most of her income comes in the last three months of the year. Considering that, on average, this ex-teacher decorates about 100 trees a year, her annual income is substantial.
Despite quitting her previous job, Amanda is confident about her new business: "I may no longer be teaching in a classroom, it's true, but I'm still teaching people how to enhance their living spaces and how to welcome their guests properly". She also added: "The magic really begins whenever people put up their Christmas decorations. I'm all about keeping people entertained."
The price Amanda charges each customer depends on the size of the tree, but she warns everyone that it can be costly. But many customers don't care about the price: "In the past, I decorated a tree with decorations that were worth $10,000, while the tree only cost $200," said Amanda. In short, this is a very viable Christmas business.
Amanda's Christmas trees are very recognizable as there is a heavy use of ribbon and decorations which really give a stunning effect. For Christmas lovers, "too many decorations" is never really too many! Not so?
