It's a lot to take in,,,, that's for sure.... I did learn that if I join my chamber of commerce ($180.00/yr) they offer some sort of discounted health insurance for small business. Don't have many details as of yet though..

I think there are many newer entrepreneurs who can't believe how much of a battle it can be to get started and that there should be an easier way. But the reality of it seems there are a lot more risks to get started than meets the eye initially.

What's your view on this?
Im my area there 2 LCO carry worksman comp out of 18 LCO
What I dont like is most them does Commercial jobs
If I have pay for it then any company that I hire should pay for it Right
Some Business around here stop asking for it so that drove the mowing prices down
Wish they make a state law If you have a Business you have to have it
Or if have a business and you hire out You have ask for it
Everybody tells me my price on mowing is high tell them if you have pay what I do Yours will be high to
But around here I do have goverment, School, City, Big factory Jobs You have to have it to bid on them jobs So I that market to make money in

I have to disagree. There are already too many taxes and laws prohibiting job creation. We don't need more.

I have no health insurance. In the future, I'm more likely to get on my girlfriend's (a teacher) health insurance rather than buy my own.
