New to the site looking for advice. Have have been working with a GC for eight plus years now. Last several years we have talked about me taking over the business. We were in the process then everything changed overnight. Long story short, he wants to now keep the business (tools and vehicles) and just focus on smaller jobs (basically not search for work). He claims to pass the larger jobs onto me. The past few months I have started the process of starting my own business. Im in the process of of getting my Contractor licence next week. Keep in mind I have not purchased tools over the years, with thoughts of taking over his business. Just looking for advice.

Re: Licensing

Kinda tough to trust anyone who can change their mind overnight. I would suggest you continue on your own venture. Get licensed, insured and buy at least 1 tool for every job you get and start creating inventory or apply for a small business loan. Good luck


I've seen it done once from a distance !
