I worked with a small(less than 15 employees) landscaping company roughly from November until August about 24-28 Hours per week in the central florida area. I am now thinking of using my brief experience to make an attempt to get a small business off the ground. At the moment I have no capital and no equipment besides a push mower which I dont plan on using. I understand the downsides to underbidding etc but I feel like I just need to get money flowing to buy more equipment and I dont mind paying myself $9-$12/Hr for now. My dad worked for a landscaping company for 8+ years so he could help me with repairs and pointers etc. I wouldnt even think twice about letting him work with me. It just wouldnt work out. I could borrow maybe maximum $600-1000 from my parents just to buy equipment(Lawn mower, Edger, Trimmer) Truck/Trailer are not of my concern at the moment. As of right now I have no definite questions just looking for advice.
