Hello folks. I recently started a small landscaping business and have most of the formalities taken care of (insurance, trade name, Taxes etc.) however it has come to my attention that I need a MHIC license just to plant shrubs. My problem is this...they require 2 years experience. I have never worked in the home improvement field full time. My neighbor owns a small contracting company and often times I worked with him just for the knowledge or in trade for letting me use his equipment on landscaping jobs. What does the commission require for proof? Can he write a letter on company letterhead stating I interned or volunteered for him for this time? Any help is appreciated Thanks.
