Well, i was in need of a job. So i was talking to a friend, who came across a painting job. Well, I ended up hooking up with the lady running the show, and told her what I was capable of. I have been doing contracting type stuff for as long as I was old enough to swing a hammer. So, basically I have been bidding some stuff, getting some jobs, and doing some paperwork stuff around it. She has wanted to start a business for a while now, and she wants me to be #2 in command for this thing. After working at crap places like pizza delivery and other such stuff, this is looking really good. What I am looking for is some advice on how to get this whole show going. I will be needing some computer software to keep track of billing, bidding, workorders, and everything else. Also, if anyone has any advice for the legal stuff to get this off the ground, too, it'd be greatly appreciated.
