    My wife and I are planning to start our own excavating business in 2003. We plan to purchase a skid steer,dump truck,and trailer and do mostly finishing work. In writing our business plan, we have encountered a major problem. We have to project sales and expenses for the next five years and we can't find the data needed for this. I've talked to some local excavating companies, but they understandably don't want to share with us "what their first year and consecutive years revenue were?" I have also called companies out of our area and received the same response. Could anyone tell me where the best place to search for this information is? Also,any advice you have for starting our business would be greatly appreciated.
    By the way, I have searched hundreds of websites and this is by far the best.

    Kevin, are you a member on the tractorybynet.com website? If not, become one, and you'll get a lot of responses. I'll post or "forward" your message on the operating and owning link, and maybe a few others. Check in and see what others have to say.
