Looks good to me...now all you need is the business plan in order to pay for it.

Let me rephrase the response. You need a business plan in order to MAKE money with the equipment that you invested your cash in.

Agreed....looks like a lot of quality equipment and that you have thought out what you will need, I do have to agree with Chuck a business plan is essential to your success.

haha...those are the business plans I like. Better than a 10 page report stating everything that will not turn out the way it is planned.

My business plan:
-Pay cash
-Work harder
-Do it better

Done!

Hello,
You have made some very good choices for starting out. Keep it up and you won't need a whole lot, but some experience to make it all come together. GOOD JOB!!!! Keep in mind, Preperation dictates the finish.

Hey, you are good to go. Just do the work that you say you're gonna do and you will succeed. There will be bumps along the way but it's all in the game. Good Luck!
