What's the first step?

Asked October 27, 2018, 7:48 AM EDT

Looking for a bit of guidance on starting a lawn fertilizing , pest control and broad leaf weed control... I have 4 yrs experience with a past employer and current boss subs his fert work out and he's not interested in doing themselves... So do I need to get my own business going to start with the licensing process? Would I be able to be licensed and certified before I'm invested into my business and spending money i really don't have if I'm unable to be licensed. For example I don't past the core exam then I would a fertilizing company that can't fertilizer... That's what concerns me... Thanks for any help you can give and have a good day... Ken B.

Wow!!! Id have a lot of questions too. I really don't like typing on the phone and didn't proofread. I made myself sound like a fool... But I have thought things through a little more and instead of trying to jump into a 7 step fertilizer program. That requires a license and testing. I think I'll do better (16yrs experience) and it'll be cheaper starting with some weekend mowing accounts or landscaping in general under my own name/company and continue working with current employer/ or another established company so i can test the waters so to speak... Pics are of my work this is what comes easy.... Again thank you for your assistance in this matter.... Ken B...
