Step 1: Read up learn all that you can and if that doesn't make you want to quit you didn't learn enough.

Step 2: quit before your bank is empty.

Welcome to the forum Trudeau.
I have read every post in every thread ever posted here & I can guarantee you this: This place is full of good advice for you. The question is, are you willing to heed it?
Almost all of it comes from the first hand experiences of others who came before you, graduates of the school of hard knocks if you will. There is more than enough reading here to cause at least a couple of weeks of your evenings to disappear, so have at it. . .if you get stuck on something in particular, post it up & let the members here see if they can clear something up for you.
Good luck!

Iíve already told you more than I know.

Prepare to have no life, get a good bidding system (repairbase or Xactware are good), learn the verbage to justify bids cuz bid approvals are where the real money is made. You can go do a $48 grass cut and find numerous BATF's or bids so that grass cut turn into a couple hundred dollars.

1 post in a month an a half.


Hmmmmm

Professionals are people who can do their job when they don't feel like it.
Amateurs are people that can't do their job even when they do feel like it.

Always be aware about your partners, I was cheated by one of my partner. He tampered invoices and cheated entire system. Then we hired a private detective agency and caught his activities. We also fired some Rogue Employees.
I refer you to take a look
