I was wonting to "feel out" the industry and see if it was what i was wonting to proceed in to. But i was wonting to look into how much it would be to get started, so what do i ask for in this? Do i need to get a name regersterd first, insurance, or what and what type of each do i need to get? I live in Arkansas and any info would be great. I do not wont to be taken on anything, so please be spifec. Also is there any on line/off line, insurance agencyes that you would reccomend? And what type of insurance am i looking for? Is there any kind of insurance for your equpiment, and if so is it worth investing in it? I do have Quick books pro, i think that it is 2004, will that work for now? What type of reccords should i be keeping, and how do i take them to my accountant (do i need an accountant). If there is anything that i have left out or are forgeting about please post them also. All this stuff is makeing me dizzy.
