This post is dated in some areas of cost, but the "bones" of the post are still relevant. As we come up to the start of the season I thought I would bump it back up to the top. Read some of the responses, they also contain good information, things to think about etc, they also point out some of the details I forgot to mention such as cost of licensing, city and county taxes etc. So think of this post as a starting point with most of the large expenses considered, you might need to tweak to your business, or maybe it does not fit but gives you something to think about. Looking for a great season, safe, and prosperous.
