This insurance really cuts into my profit margin, and I am not sure if I want to take on another account, with being I am just starting out in this biz.
...go with 1mil...I have governmental and commercial accounts and that covers it all...
Get workers comp as well...there is a basic entry level amount that is fairly cheap...
Not having this coverage will hold you back and COST you money in the long run...remember...you have to spend money to make money...some expenses are a better value than others and IMO insurance is "good" value...
