Advice For A Rookie

Greetings. What advice would you give to a newbie looking to get into concrete?

A little background. I'm working as a commercial carpenter (Form) Prior to coming here in the US two years ago I studied civil eng. worked on our small GC business doing res. and light com., As of the moment on the process of obtaining all the licenses needed. I am planning on focusing on concrete (driveways, slabs & footing), Also little by little buying the right tools/equipment which would take a while for me.

My question to you guys is how did you started to do it on your own, build your presence did you do it business to business (sub con).

equipment ( dump trailer, skidsteer, excavator ,etc) did you guys rent at first?
