Do you know how to bid residential? It is the same.
Biding is the same all the time- KNOW YOUR COSTS- pay yourself- add your profit- thats the price.
Getting jobs---Advertize--
What do you need--Insurance--
From these questions, I think you want to start small and get your feet wet a little at a time.

I carry a pad of legal paper on a clipboard with me everywhere I go! If I pass a property that looks unkept, I call them and ask if they currently have anyone.
I'm also a member of the Chamber of Commerce in my county (and city). I network every chance I get!
Suck it up and drive on Airborne!
