Hello all, I'm 21 and I live in Las Vegas. I sell advertising full time for a top internet advertising company. I'm young, single and don't really have too many bills. I've printed out all of the business license forms (THERE ARE TONS!) for the County and State. I've got a name picked out and everything. What I'm wondering is this. I am getting investors in my family but they want me to have a business plan and an idea of start up cost. I plan to do this very legit. Getting insured, respectable equipment, etc. I plan on buying used commercial equipment. Can anyone give me maybe a simple list of the equipment I'd need for start-up for the next probably 6 months. I plan on buying a little Toyota or Nissan pick up to put around to my jobs (Nothin beater but I can't afford a whole lot) I've got my Marketing plan down. I plan on getting about 3,000 door hangers and probably 2,000 fliers to put on windshields in the rich area of town. I've got three teenage sisters, I plan on getting them to get a few friends to help me pass them out. Pay for them all to get into a movie or something like that. I'll probably have some t-shirts made up to keep it professional What is the typical cost of starting the business? I don't have to have beautiful equipment, but I don't want to look like the kid down the street trying to mow your lawn either. This is going to be a one man operation (at least for the time being). Any suggestions help, thanks in advance.
