    OP...you're about months too late to start a snow business in Michigan.

    Unemployment is at an all time low, so you shouldn't have a problem finding a job plowing or shoveling if you're as qualified as you claim.

    You need to have customers, equipment, insurance, register your "business", a business plan would be a good idea, a federal ID number if you're going to have employees, WC, and possibly business licenses.

    There is no get rich quick scheme in snow removal. In an area like Saginaw, you aren't going to make $40k with 2 trucks in 2 months. Just isn't going to happen.

    Genuinely curious here- just what advice were you expecting from strangers on "how do I make $40,000 in 60 days with no money, credit, equipment, or experience?"

    Edit: darn it, beat by Mark again.

    There’s your problem right there, you go into a job thinking you’re too good to start at the bottom. You will fail with that attitude, just like you failed the first time.
    Are you on a library computer now, or did you some how afford one after being homeless and looking for a job :rolleyes:
