I'm considering opening a lawncare business. I've read about the importance of having a business plan. I was wondering if anybody would like to share theirs? I'm going to start out solo and I want to start out simple (basically just mowing and trimming until I get up and rolling). The only equipment that I have at this point is a truck and a trailer. I also have a computer and enough tools to repair my equipment. I know I need a mower, and trimmer, but what else to get me started. What mower options are helpful. How much and what kind of insurance do I need? How many customers should I shoot for? Should I work for a lawncare company before starting on my own? I make $30,000 a year at my current job; could I make more than that working for somebody else? Would anybody hire me knowing that I want to start my own company which would be a competitor?
