    I got incorporated Monday, got a fictitious name on Tuesday, and got my business license today. I have a 6x12 trailer and I'm buying an Ex-Mark 36" Turf Tracer tomorrow. Things are looking up! I already have 2 accounts through family and I should be fully set up within the next week.

    Wish me luck guys! :drinkup:

    Advertise! Great job getting legal. Some people on here make it out like its hard to get licensed and insured it's not. Do a great job and you will hardly loose any accounts. Easy business to be in if you like this work. Get some education on business management and that will help alot.

    I'm definitely going to advertise. I have a superintendent in a new estate subdivision that is going to pass out my cards to all of the residents as they move in. My friend is a graphic designer and she made me a really nice logo so as soon as I get the disc from her I'm getting my cards made and flyers, t-shirts and truck magnets.

    I should be good at running the business I have a management and customer service background and I've taken a lot of accounting courses. My father and grandfather are accountants as well so I should be able to get plenty of free help when I need it.

    Pasty, let me know if you need a place to get any signs or tshirts printed. I just got some more made last week and I really like this guy. Tshirts came out great. PM me if you want to check him out. Good luck to you, and do me a favor, start praying for rain here in Jax!!!

    I would definitely like the info but I can't pm yet b/c I don't have enough posts! If you could pm me or email me at blkgsxr@comcast.net. Thanks!

    Oh yeah I almost forgot...I've been praying for rain for months. I got a little tonight though (Mandarin). I'm finally getting a sprinkler system installed after 3 years in my house. Work starts on the 5th of June.
