    Im going to be starting up in the spring. Ive worked for someone else for about two years learned heaps of the technical aspect, but the guy was actually a terrible people person..I mean he used to tell customers not to bother him while we were working on their property, and they wanted to talk about doing more work. I was doing most of the work and now im tired of being underpaid and appreciated. This winter i have a good job which i will use to finance my new PART-time business and also over the winter i will be researching more about the business-end of the business. Ive already started on writing a business plan, and just going over some of the other things i didnt/couldnt learn on the jobsites. I was wondering where i could get quality used equip. I want to buy the best i can afford. and also any other info on stating up would be greatly appreciated. I've already had people call me cause they heard i'm on my own. I just hope they dont think im going to be the cheapo guy! Any help/comments criticism welcome!
    PS Id also like to know if anyone hsa dealt with competing head to head with a former employer? Thanks again
