starting lawn care biz and first time business owner
hello everyone i am new to the site and its my first post. I am in the process of getting my company up and running and i have a few questions.
For equipment I have a husquvarna 46inch cut ztr, two 21in cut push mowers, a craftsman backpack blower, and a echo string trimmer which is all paid for so i have no over head on equipment (beside maintenance, gas etc..)
- I know i have to get a business license and insurance but which is better an llc or sole prop? -Through word of mouth i have picked up 3 yards, and i am in the works for 6 rental properties (family friend owns property), but I work 55hrs a week as an auto mechanic with 2 days off during the week and i plan to cut yards on my day off, what would be a managable number of properties to have until i am able to cut grass full time? (wife is in nursing school, i am the only one working and we have to have health insurance for my son)
and any tips you can give a rookie
