In the state of hawaii you have to have 2 years of experience in the field of spraying that you will be doing. I would REALLY like to become an applicator but the income loss from employing myself out for 2 years makes it impossible. My question is: can I still have my own accounts while working under another landscaper license? for instance, T and C lawn service (me) works under big joe's applicator license. I drum up my own business, under my name and they are my accounts accept I give big joe half of my profit for letting me work under his license. after the two years I no longer work for big joe and keep the current accounts I have. do you think that this would be LEGAL? I think that I know a landscaper that would be willing to do it with me.
