I am looking to start a business in the spring, just myself with no employees for atleast two years and I am just wondering which ways to go about it in some areas. I am very familiar with the field having seven years in running a landscaping crew. I feel its time to go about doing my own thing before heads but with the boss in how to do things. I have a name picked out and have a pickup truck, 14' trailer and backpack blower. Need to get myself a mower and was thinking about getting a leftover 52" stander and making payments on it. would this be a good idea? i know i should start with no debt but would using my saving for future material purchases and business expenses be a better way to go? I also need to get the obvious chainsaw and weed wacker and hedge trimmer. Any advise about getting this going for the spring? my plan is to send out about 10,000 postcards or doorhangers in february or march or should those go out right when the new year starts?
