    You registered a business in your name, at the age of 16. Right....
    I'm also fairly certain you cant hold an insurance policy of your own until you're 18.

    I was 17 and a few days when I registered what I said was misleading I was registered from mid December. And yes I hold my gl insurance policy. Maybe it's an Ontario thing never had to really look into it. I had a whole bunch more typed up but my phone died before I posted anyways its late if you have any more questions shoot em quickly or il reply tomorrow

    I started myself last season. Last year i grossed about $8,000 between mowing and landscape jobs. I have already doubled the amount of weekly clients from last year and i am hoping to pick up a few more. And it looks like i will have a total yard renovation coming in march or april which alone will be a few grand.

    You do it need more than ever for residential..what if you break a window in the house or car? What if you seriously damage a car with a rock? A lot of us smaller companies couldn't take that kind of hit.
