    2007 I will launch my new Lawn Service in Louisville KY... Wish me luck, I got to admit I'm a little scared of failing...

    I hope to see you around town, good luck getting started. My company does work in Louisville, E-town, Bowling Green and a few other places close by. There is a lot of business around Louisville so hopefully you will find plenty of work. Remember Insurance is a big deal, and is not an option.

    Thanks for the advice.. Yep Insurance is key. I know the company I work for won't hire any contractor without 1,000,000,000 in Insurance. So I may start with 500,000. Any advice where to get insurance? Thanks
