man have I been busy , I,ve done more flat work and final grades in the last 2 weeks than I did all last month , raking in the dough , my part time small business has turned into a full time business and my full time job at the dealership is now a part time gig for me , I say maybe one more year of juggling the two and I'll be 100% self employed , and I can't wait ...

Thats the greatest feeling in the world, working for yourself.

liability insurance

Looking to get legal in North La. Having trouble finding a company that has affordable insurance. The ones I have gotten quotes from are $950 for 100k to $1600 for 1 mil. These are a bit steep since I only have 3 customers (family and friends). I want to go out and get more but need to be insured first.

What companies do you use ? I primarily do insecticide spraying for mosquitoes and ants.

work for cash for now and have people sign a waiver . I can't see paying for insurance if you don't have any work ... , or maybe try and get some work through people already in the business as a sub under them and let them take the insurance out of your check for each individual job you do , thats the safest thing for you and your potential customers ... that way you can get your foot in the door in the business in your area so say , and build some relationships where people think of you when they are looking for someone to do whatever it is you'll be doing , I hope that help's some ...

I guess Jacob isn't in the grass business anymore. He took all the lettering off the back of his truck
