Aberdeen,Wa

Hello!
This is my first post, so I'll intro myself here.

I am a 46 year old Father of 3 lovely young ladies and I am looking at starting up a small LCO here in Aberdeen (down on the coast). It is great to see a community of Business Owners sharing and helping each other like you all are here!

I am getting ready to start here in a week or less, so any info to get me started would be infinitely valuable. I have a Honda HRB215SXA that I'll use initially to get accounts. I also have a weed eater and will get a blower shortly. I am really talking small time to start

I also do Computer security work on the side, so I will have it to supplement my income, and my wife has a full time job. My question is it too late for a 46 y.o. guy to get started in the business? I am intelligent, want to do quality work without low-balling and have minimal lawn experience. Can I succeed?

It is kind of a rhetorical question, since I am going to do it anyway. But it never hurts to have a little reassurance. Has anyone used The Business Package that Sean Adams put together? Can it help a total noob like myself? Is it worth $70.00?

I would love to any help you can offer!

Thanks in advance......


And the big question I have off the bat is - It looks like even a small time operator needs to have a Pest Control License to apply fertilizer and herbicides on residental properties. Is that correct? Or is it possible to apply those as a homeowner would using what I buy at Home Depot? I want to be legal, but I haven't had a P.C. License in many years. And it looks like 170.00 to get one. Do I "have" to get one, or can I apply chemicals / fertilizers that Homeowners can buy without one in this state?

Just thought I'd also chime in. My name is Dusty, been in the business for 12 years, my own for the last 4. I'm up in Whatcom County, Lynden, Blaine, Bellingham. Also interested in chatting and passing along ideas and knowledge. Thank you,
