<<Where do I get funding?>>
Your expenses is rather minimal, IMHO, I wouldn't worry too much about it. You are selling SERVICE, after all.
<<What kind of insurance do I need?>>
General liability should be enough. It's not as if you're doing life or death stuff.
<<What kind of business license do I need?>>
That's a question up to your local city or county licensing board?
<<How do I go about making a business plan?>>
Lots of business plan writers on the market. Only like $100 or something.
<<Do I need contracts between individuals? Where can I find these documents?>>
I would say get an existing one by visiting a similar service center like those in CompUSA or BestBuy, and see if you can borrow a bit of their wording. However have an attorney look it over first.
<<Any other advice?>>
Get A+ certified, and Net+ if you plan to do networks.
I would like to start a computer repair business but have some questions before I start. I would like to offer services to individuals in computer repair, network administration, and web design. Here are my questions:
Where do I get funding?
What kind of insurance do I need?
What kind of business license do I need?
How do I go about making a business plan?
Do I need contracts between individuals? Where can I find these documents?
Any other advice?
I know my audience will consist of individuals wanting these services and plan to charge only $35/hr.
