One thing to keep in mind is don't bid to cheap. Even if you can afford it when its just you. You must think about it when you will have employees. As your business grows will it be a pain to take care of it when you could be making good money somewhere else. In other words, build it slow and weed out the cheap people. Oh and by the way expect to pay your venders well just like you want to be paid.
