New guy here and I am looking at taking very small baby steps for the next 9 to 12 months to begin a solid part time business with the long term goal (3 to 5years) of making it full time. (wife finishes degree in 3years and will return full time to the work force) Here are the beginning questions. 1. I am planning on creating a LLC. I also know that I will need a business license. Which one do you do first. (I live in Tennessee) 2. I am planning on offering the following services... mowing, trimming, edging, light landscape, power washing. Will I need to collect sales tax on any of those services? 3. Any other "starting from the ground floor" business tips I need to know? Thanks in advance.
