Just takes time... Especially for commercial! We don't do contracts for residential.. Just not worth it to us plus with all the no contracts trends these days it bothers some people that they have to sign a contract just to get there grass cut..

congrats on wanting to get into the industry. What is going to be your "major" per say? Commercial accounts take a lot of work. You have to be very competitive priced along with having all of the proper insurance ETC.... residential's a lot of the time are easier to get because chances are if they call...they want the service YOU provide and not really shopping around like the commercial accounts do. Start by getting 100% legal first, and then go after everything business wise.
