What trades have you been doing for the past seven years, and for what type of contractor? That may help narrow down which license you should concentrate on trying to get.

Just my opinion but I would say if you're thinking about becoming a legit sheetrocking contractor you should seriously consider learning how to calculate time and material first before going into business for yourself.
