Nope. I need a bigger building or to get rid of crap we don't use. Our garages are packed, and I can't park anything outside. It'll get stolen.

Livonia area

We'd be willing to take on some overflow work in the Livonia area. Have 1 crew with enough open time to take on 6 - 10 accounts, depending on size.

DBA is not a good idea because you open yourself up to personal liability. YOU are the company, i.e. Joe Blow "DOING BUSINESS AS" Premium Lawn Care.

There is no seperation between your personal and business activites, therefore should you get sued, your personal assets could be at risk.

Anyways... there's a lot to it. Spend a few hundred now and consult an attorney AND an accountant for guidance. It will pay off in the long run.

Operative word: AND

Spend the time if you're truly serious to speak with both the attorney AND a couple of accountants. You'll be establishing a couple of long term relationships most likely, so interview them as you've probably had done to you by now, to make sure that the people you're working with are going to be able to understand you and vise-versa. As far as I've been concerned, my relationship with our accountant has been every bit important as that with my ole' lady (I get to call her that even though she's much younger).
