Buy or demo products first to see what you like, then see what kinds of clients you get, and then buy your equipment. Some dealers let you demo their stuff if they know you will spend quite a bit of money there, mine does. Or, just buy temporary equipment first until you see what you really need. Lots of new guys out here who just start out, buy too much stuff that is out of their actual budget, and go out of business in their second season. C.Y.A.
