Congradulations and welcome!
as to your question:

your most important tool is your reputation. Be fair with everyone, and be willing to walk away from a bad deal/slimy clients.

Pay all your subs on time, they will remember that and when you are in a pinch they will be available.

oh, and get a really cool truck! LOL

Looking back over the years, probably one of the biggest mistakes I ever made was getting my General license. While I've done a handful of jobs that required a license of that magnitude, the majority of my work could have been done with a Builder's license. All in all, I've paid out about a quarter of a million in insurance premiums. I estimate I could have gotten by for well under half that amount holding just a Builder's. :eek::whistling:sad::laughing:
