Advice suggestion!!!

Hi everyone im new to the forum and to the business i was wanting some opinions on what i have to start with and suggestions for improvement. I know hard work and doing a excellent job is the #1 key to success with that said let me state i am just doing this part time starting out as i have a good full time job but i love mowing and being outside also i'm very popular in my area and very well liked so that's a great start!! Ok so the break down of my equipment ill be starting with and ill just be doing residential for the time being.
-46 inch cut 23 hp kohler engine husqvarna model 4623 zero turn mower.
-21inch cut husqvarna push mower with bagger
-2 echo back pack blowers
-stihl trimmer also a homelite for the lady!!!
-15ft trailer "room for adding"!!
craftsman hedge trimmer -electric for time being
and of course i have the normal hedge trimmers gas cans etc..
So i'm hoping this will all be enough and reliable to get me started as i only look to be doing around 10-15 residential clients a week. But i eventually want to make this a full time business for me and my family i've researched alot on the lawn care subject but i think their is always standards to follow but work and experience trial and error i believe is what will make or break a business. Any advice or suggestion will be greatly taken as i aim to make this successful and am very determined to shine in this industry. Also looking forward to making some new online fellow friends in the process !!!!

First thing you need to do is get liability insurance and a business license!

Yeah i been looking into that also i just wasn't sure if i needed to do that right off or not because i'm only going to be servicing yards around 2 or 3 days a week starting out, but better safe than sorry and i want it all to be legit and legal. Around about what do you think the insurance will cost me?
