    Do you have the capital to get a subcontractor under contract for the amount of clients you expect to get?

    What do you mean? In terms of getting a legal contract created by a lawyer?

    Subs dont start for free. They will want money up front for large contracts.

    Haha, like I said before: Think outside the box.

    I hired distributors ;), didn't go get charged insane amounts of money from a distributing company.

    If you want to hire them, sorry not possible but what is possible: Hire people who will do that.

    Of course they do. Our customers will be asked under contract to make an upfront payment that THEY CAN GET BACK whenever they want but they will be told we must take the payment in order to service them.

    Customers won't take their money back for no reason when they know its being used for a proper reason. (To service them.. which is why they signed up in the first place!)

    Again you obviously have never worked with subcontractors.
