Default How to start??

Hi, this is going to be a long post because I have a lot of questions on my mind right now.

So i guess a list of questions will be the easiest to under stand. So here goes.

1. Do I buy a lawn mower first or a trailer? My friend( also a landscaper) has his old trailer that is just sitting in his yard. He offered it to me for 300$ its 4x6 with no ramp. I have a ramp for my 4x4 that I can use on the trailer. But Im not sure If it makes sense to buy that and use my fathers mower(honda self propelled push mower) until I can get one of my own. Or buy a mower and just put it in the bed of my truck until I can afford a trailer.

2. How do I get accounts(mowing, mulching, ect.) I have had a few jobs here and there but how do I get consistent work.

3. My fathers cousin owns a Bridal shop in my town. Would it be smart to try and get them as a commercial account. The whole property is probably about an acer and a half.

I think thats it for now but Im sure I will think of more
