In Dortmund, florist Ute Kersting delivers bouquets to her clients personally. In Munich, a dating agency does all the groundwork for singles looking for love. And in Berlin, Tobias Rietz writes lyrics for German pop singers.
February 14 is a big day for Ute Kersting and her flower shop in Dortmund. Kersting gives Valentine’s Day a personal touch - she delivers bouquets to her customers herself.
Ingo Möbius and Andy Laufer have come up with a novel business idea. They are founders of "Suredate”, an agency in Munich that writes personals ads for their clients, and searches dating sites for promising prospects. To top it off, they even ghost-write online chats and arrange for first dates.
At 33, Tobias Reitz is the youngest professional pop songwriter in Germany. He’s been writing tunes in the homegrown "schlager” genre for ten years now, and many of his songs have gone gold and platinum.
