I have been seriously pondering whether or not to try an apply for a small business loan. I have heard that for this type of business that it is relatively easy to receive one. And for someone who can prove that he doesn't have to pay himself out of the business to provide for income, then it is even easier. Right know I have another full time job with a very nice company (on paper). My plans are to start my landscaping job full time next season and drop my other career completely. In order to do this I could really use the help of a sbl. I would not drop the career until I had at least 1 month of meshing the two jobs together. I am wondering if any of the LCO's out there have taken this route of loan and has it worked. $25000 loan amount $5200 enclosed 24' trailer $10500 (2) gravely 48" walk behind $2500 computer setup $1500 advertising expense I already have a 60" 1999 gravely 260z.

I am not going to just sit here I am going to grow larger than anyone knows.
