    I live in Kalamazoo,Michigan. Do I need a permit or a license to get started. I eventually want my own business. I know about insurance,pricing,etc. Im confused on what to do.

    Well, if you know about pricing and insurance then your next move is to contact your local professional licensing agency regarding permits etc. If you have a town or county office, that's the place to start. Next, contact the Small Business Administration for help in starting up and developing a Business Plan.
     
  3. i know if you are in downtown GR you need to have a permit think you might be fine but you might wont to call the county office to make sure.
     
  4. Permits

    I think that you might want to check, cause I know that many towns require them. I know that I am buying one for Grand Rapids, Walker, and i believe that Grandville requires one also. I also know this....in order to get one, you must have a commercial policy that has the city co-insured. Like i have a commercial policy with grand rapids, walker, and grandville co insured.
