Hello everyone, thanks in advance for any information/input.
This does not specifically relate to the electrican industry alone, but a friend and I are looking into starting a home repair business and I was wanting to get any insight and information as possible. I have owned a business in the past, but not in this trade.
We would mainly be doing some carpentry work, tile, paint, etc...and I would be doing certain electrical work (I am a licensed electrician).
Beyond general business, is there anything specific I should know about working in the trades that would be beneficial?
I understand that this is not a specific question, so all insight is appreciated. Thanks!
Thanks for the tip about the forms at NEBS, I had forgotten about those...seen them a while back.
I would actually prefer not to be part of a franchise as it is very easy to find business here and I know my city very well. But it never hurts to look into it...thanks for the info.
Another question, I do have my electrical license, but I don't think a license is needed for general repair/contractor work in the state of Texas. There is no "contractors license" that I can find listed on the state website, but a lot of forms ask for this. Any ideas?

Ah, thanks...never found that site before. Most of my work should not cost more then $20,000 (any single job) however, so I don't know if I would need this. Of course, if/when I get close to this threshold I will.
