I have my mower, trimmers, blower,etc. I could cut tomorrow. I have a semi-fulltime job with health ins. that I can just about make up my own schedule. My initial plan is to try to pick up a few yards for next season (as many as possible) and continue with my current job, taking a day or two off to devote to the lawn business. I want to be as professional as possible with business cards, brochures, logo t-shirts, trailer sign, etc. I feel that this is the best way to advertise and get my name out there and get my foot in the door. But, I'd hate to spend a bunch of money on insurance, business fees, and such and only be doing this on a limited basis at this time. I hope to be in a position in the near future to do this full time, but don't really know when that might be. I'd also like to come up with a decent name. Should I register it with the city or whoever? I'm sure some of you have been in the same spot that I am in. What are your suggestions? What is the bare minimum that you would do and still try to be as professional as possible? Thanks for any help.
