    I would start by purchasing the program from lawn care success (Sean's program). Do you know any small business owners (it doesn't have to be green related)? If so, start picking their brain. Some of the basics of business will all be the same. Do some research using the search button. Do research on things like operating costs, business plans, advertising, true costs, equipment, etc. Start now with your research. Start soon with your plan. Revise your plan, and then revise you plan, and then put your plan into action.

    My state website helped me out a lot. Also check to see if you have a Small Business Developmental Center in your area. They provide you with one on one help and different classes. I've been to the library, bookstore, and internet, and have gotten a ton of info that way.
