    Hey BrooksR

    This forum is only for people working in the field or in a way that is somehow related to the field.

    You would need to start an introduction thread in the new members forum and describe who you are and what you do in/around the field.

    If you can't achieve that, you might want to ask your question elsewhere.

    Just letting you know. :)

    So, you're gonna start a business but you're not smart enough to start a new member thread. Good luck with that.

    I do work in the field. I'm a technician in Indiana. I just moved here from Charlottes north Carolina. Laws are quite different in the Midwest than in NC.

    I'm sure Indiana has rules somewhere. If you can't read the rules here on new members then how can you be expected to read the rules in Indiana?

    for starters: business license, Federal and state tax accounts, general liability insurance, workers compensation insurance, commercial vehicle insurance, a lawyer, and accountant, tools, and a clue on how to set pricing.

    From there: a business plan, a marketing plan, customers, employees, a payroll service, and open accounts at suppliers. Let us not forget..... a bank account with which to write checks to pay vendors and employees.

    That should get you started. Once you are in business, you will need to do quite a bit more to run day to day operations.

    I think every tech should start a business, its simple. KEEPING the business is the hard part. When techs start businesses and find out how hard it is, then fail, they become REALLY good employees.
