    Depends upon your situation I guess.
    You can start this type of business any time, because any time is a good time to start getting your name out there.
    But if you are absolutely diving in full time, no other income, then I don't think after Labor Day would be a good time to do this.
    Part time yes at that time of the year, but not solely full time.

    We dove in five years ago, but we started at the beginnng of the season. Just seemed to risky for us to try it any other time than at the start of the season.

    Never to late. I started my business in October, right in the middle of leaf season. Have not looked back since.
