I have kicked the idea of starting a lawn care company for years and now it is a go after losing my job this past march and now making $9.00 less a hour at my new job. As far as equipment I have a Kubota ZG222 with 8 hours on it paid for and all the other stuff you need minus a good trailer. I live in TN so what companies offer liability insurance for this profession. What does insurance usually cost for a one man operation? I know I need to get a business license. My wife has a tax # for her business so can I us that # or do I my own tax # with for my business? Any advice is greatly appreciated.
