Just a thought, how about one of those that doesn't say how long you have been in business. Some guy's might not like to admit that they have only been in business for a short time and other guy's might not like letting people know that they have been in the business since mosses was a baby ....lol. Also helps with the anonimity of the internet

Before I had my contractors license about 12 years ago....I did a job, full landscape, lighting, irrigation, grading.....The guy turned me into the board because I never came and hauled off a 20 foot length of 1.5 inch pipe...

Cost me 1000 in fines.....forced me to get licensed....my business exploded after that because I felt more legitimate and more confident.


Short story, big lesson.
