I have intentions to start a landscape/hardscape/irrigation biz sometime after the first of the year, and I am trying to get educated and get my ducks in a row. I've started the research for setting up the LLC, getting an EIN, read up some on taxes and employees (won't have employees to start), I've looked into SBA loans (although I probably can't pledge enough personal assets at this very moment to get the amount I would like for truck, trailer, and mini), and I've read some blog postings giving me some ideas on the cost of the general liability insurance. I've picked a potential name and and I've also gotten quotes on logo and web design. What else do I need to be looking into? Is a certain order best to do all these things? Does anyone know an easy way to get lending if you have good personal credit and are using it to purchase tangible assets (like truck and machinery) instead of operating capital?
