I will be retired in 5 years from the corporate world and have always been active and an outdoors person. Have enjoyed my own landscaping & lawn maintenance as well as for family members. I was in business for myself 20 years ago as an Electrician - still have my license but that business doesn't interest me anymore. Have recently come across an opportunity to own my own lawn business and am in the process of researching how to set this up so that I build my business and reputation over the next 5 years so that I am established to go full time at that point. This site has been extremely helpful but I realize there is alot that has changed in the last 20 years for business ownership and am trying to catch up with all the changes and learn the new information. My wife is willing to help although she will not be able to retire from her day job for a number of years. I am looking to her mainly for bookkeeping and keeping me out of financial trouble.
