I am starting late into this field but am willing to work hard. I am looking for advice on what I need, including contract information, legal knowledge, advertising expertise. I will be starting this part time with my girlfriend and son who have been extremely helpful with creating business cards, fliers, and spreading the word. Please give any advice that will help me with speeding up the process of getting it started. I will be going full time once I get enough clients and knowledge. I have read other forums and have gotten great advice, but it seems that most of you are in the north and I live in an area that is either very populated or the true country folks who do their own yard. Competition is also extreme. Please help.
