    Okay, so I'm new to this as well. It's going to prove a a lot more helpful if you will slow down a bit, explain what you're looking to do, what type of advice you're seeking, and how you are going about establishing this business.

    In mycase, before I visit a customer, I am going to visit the county courthouse. I will establish a business formally, have a name attached to it, and then call my insurance agent to get a small buiness insurance policy. Then, I will advertise, and establish a seperate phone account soley for business purposes. Then, and only then, will I visit customers and begin to appraise their properties and give quotations, which will be written.

    Perhaps this might be of some help.

    Why are you pulling weeds from the beds but spraying the driveway?
