What Insurance You’ll Need

The Right Equipment

So before operating, make a list of all the equipment and materials that you might need and factor these into your budget.

What Contracts You’ll Require

When first starting operations, you should try and develop a comprehensive contract that you’ll present to each of your clients. This will include the scope of work, how they will pay you, your schedule, the timeline, etc. Of course, this might vary a little by the type of client you have, but creating a basic outline from the start will send you on the right path.
