Hello all. I am new to this site but I am very impressed with the amount of knowledgable contractors and the great information shared by all. I am a plumber by trade, for about 5 years now. I am getting ready to take my master's test and I am very serious about starting my own business. I would love any advice from plumbing business owners, or anyone who has started their own business for that matter. I currently work for a major mechanical contractor but i am wanting to start a residential business. I have a brother in-law who is an accountant so I have that aspect covered but I have many questions about things such as getting started and drumming up new business, etc. for anyone willing to lend an experienced ear. Thank you in advance for any advice and I will continue to read all your great posts.

Leo thanks for the advice. I have , over the years, done several houses on the side. I have a pretty good knowledge of residential plumbing products. Moving from commercial plumbing to residential is definetly a change but I think a pretty resonable one. I guess I'm just nervous about being able to get a customer base started. Thanks for the adnice though, I will make sure to familiarize my self with the products involved in the residential side of the industry.

Do you want to work out of a van w/ a cell phone or do you want a brick and mortar business? Like a showroom where you also sell plumbing products.
