Ok before anyone else could say it yes I am a noob of both hanging lights and running a business. With that being said I love Christmas lights and the joy it brings to people, have the ability to work through problems. Have a strong desire to own my own business and run it myself, with the needed help and advise from experts. I currently work in cable TV installation so I have experience working in/on peoples homes. The big one, I want to start this year installing lights part time (about 3-5 homes) with less than $300. I have read most of the threads on this site about Christmas lights and would say that allot you guys are experts and I highly respect you. So the main point of this is, is it possible to start with such a little bit of money. I do have ladders and other tools I could use.
