I work for an Excavating Company but wanting to start my own. How do I go about finding the work, renting equipment and biding jobs without having any experience other then just running the equipment?

hi Adam,
actually it is a good idea, but I am not sure that it's worth doing in case you have no experience in this area. iF you know something about that still consult to other people and purchase some pos for you business, it will help you focus only on your job, but not on the accounting and other issues. i know some guys who supply good POS, I ordered from them too - smile-pos.com/ there are also other guys, but they operate in Colorado, if you have a possibility to get there try to contact them - pos-co.com/
