Parker: Momentum carries new Canadians to successful floral business - Calgary HeraldWednesday, October 28, 2020
I want to start a business here, but I don’t know how.”After relating her previous business history, she was told she had the ability to run her own enterprise in Calgary and was encouraged to take a six-month Momentum course. Her sink or swim attitude resulted in her quitting her job at Market Mall, dedicating her time to school from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day, plus homework.Thanks to all that she learned from the course, she was granted a Momentum small business loan and a crucial, larger loan from BDC, and with some added family savings the couple bought the former Unique Flower Boutique business that had been in the same location for 22 years.That was in 2012, just over a year after they arrived here.Refat says he enjoyed being his own designer of floral arrangements and, with a number of inherited clients in the shop’s database, they were off and running.Then came the 2013 flood, and although they didn’t suffer water damage the shop was closed for two weeks and they lost another week due to an electrical outage downtown. A good number of the shop’s regular customers were in the oil and gas industry, so when the downturn hit, they were hit again. https://calgaryherald.com/business/commercial-real-estate/parker-momentum-carries-new-canadians-to-successful-floral-business

A devoted florist gives each 9/11 victim a white birthday rose - The GazetteSunday, January 17, 2021
NEW YORK — Every Sept. 11, Michael Collarone, a Brooklyn-bred florist who goes by Mikey Flowers, has the same routine. In the hours before 8:46 a.m., the time the first plane struck the World Trade Center 19 years ago, he parks his truck in downtown Manhattan and, bearing buckets of angelic white roses, walks to the site where he once helped scour for victims’ remains in the twin towers’ smoldering wreckage.There, the burly 62-year-old meets up with “my guys” from the Port Authority police. This year, he will be wearing a mask for the first time and, for social distancing reasons, the victims’ names will be played from recordings on a loudspeaker rather than read aloud from a stage, but little else will change for him. “I’m going to hug my friends,” he says. “I’m going to hug my guys.”Collarone’s steadfast devotion to honoring the victims of 9/11 isn’t a once-a-year kind of thing, though. He’s been the de facto volunteer florist to Ground Zero since it was known around the city as the Pile or the Pit. And that didn’t change when the novel coronav... https://www.thegazette.com/subject/news/a-devoted-florist-gives-each-911-victim-a-white-birthday-rose-20200911
