    1. licenses and insurance
    2. advertising
    3. get atleast 20 accounts during the summer.

    I'm going to make business cards and get holders for them, and goto the businesses near my target area and ask and see if I can leave some next to their register or somewhere up front.

    And also foot patrol with fliers.

    I think you are setting your goals to low with 20 accounts. your first year goal should be around 40. Thats sounds much better

    I'm just using 20 as a kind of median, my real goal is 50.
    I believe I can do it. I currently don't have any equipment yet but I'm working on my advertising and marketing ideas getting prepared.

    where in orlando do you live? I have Vacation house in daytona, the family and I spend alot of the winter down here, and to kept from going totaly bored I do several small installs a year troughout the daytona, sanford, and orlando area. I love this area. Some day I would love to live fulltime down here if I could only talk the wife into moving her firm to florda.

    best of luck
