Hey everyone just wondering if I could get some help I'm thinking about starting a lawn service company next spring. As of right now I have a good job that pays well so Im not going to quit or anything but I would love to start my own company with a few accounts a day and build from there. If you wondering why I want to start a business since I have a good job well I'm tired of working for people and I work on the Automotive Business, that's not so great anymore. First of all I have the money to buy the equipment I'm going start off small and then just build from there. I have a truck but I think I may buy or lease something a little bigger and better. The one thing is I really don't know is where to start? Where do I go and get insured, what's the best way to advertise, where do I go and get a business license, for those of you that don't have a whole lot of room where do u store your trailer for the night and where do u recommend storing it? I'm going to start off just buy myself and then latter hire someone probably a close family member. How many small residential accounts a day can I do myself after working 8 hrs at my first job? I did price out the equipment but is there any place that anyone recommends. (I live in Southwest MI). I just want to know what the first steps I should take are and in what direction I should go? I want to do this its something Ive been thinking about for a long time any help would be greatly appreciated.
