You have been doing construction for the last 15 years. You went to school for it and then spent years working for a local company. Now, you are ready to branch out and start your own construction business. You're tired of being an employee and you want to run things.
Before you launch a new business, it is critical to make sure that your business idea itself is actually legal. If you're worried about it, there is reason to be cautious. Do not get ahead of yourself and start spending money, only to find out the idea is illegal when you are about to open your doors. The government could shut you down and it may cost you an incredible amount -- even if you do not face legal charges.
