New to P&P desperately need advice

My cousin owns a p&p company (i think all his work is for safe guard) small operation 2 man crew he runs around takes care of bids follows up on work has his own truck & equipment & owns another truck & equipment for his 2man crew. He works a ton & covers a large populated area, hes asked me if i wanted to take on a new contract under his company but i run my own crews or use a 2 man crew (me & a hand i hire) & do p&p work in that area.. ive got some $ & half of the equipment i need but im worried about quiting my cush job to chase this venture.. not scared of hard work or long hours if the $ is really there... thoughts advice???????? He acts like its worth the headache for the $ u can pull in

Quit a cush job for a possible Safeguard-type contract? No way.

Quit an iffy job to start a business/crew working for realtors and private customers, possibly.

I would stay where you are if you really do have a great cushy job. It is a lot of work to diversify out of P&P to private customers to make money, and if you don't have the time or pockets to make nothing for a decent amount of time, I'd pass, especially without knowing exactly who this new contract is with.

for extra cash, you will be much better off, and won't need to make a large investment.

If your cousin is going to sub you Safeguard work, I can guarantee you that you will be "hungry" and won't be "making $".

The advice that you are looking for is here. I would suggest you invest a lot of time reading here. The search function is your friend. Try safeguard, screwguard, safescrew and variations on that. When you're done reading, you may just decide to NOT invest in your cousin or Safeguard.
