    would you be able to afford living down there before you get any customers? do you have another job lined up in the interim to pay the bills?

    well you would really have to figure out your expenses IMO before you went. how much would an apartment cost per month? there would be a lot of stuff to consider before i moved my operation anywhere else....just my .02

    I am from orlando. Believe me when I say competition is rough. Everywhere I go I compete with uninsured, uneducated, unlicensed people doing the work for half the cost of what it should be done for. I'm sure that everywhere has their share of this, but it is an infestation here. I have to convince customers that insurance and licensing are important! I wouldn't recommend it, but if you do come down here, good luck.
