New Aquatic Business Starting!!

Ok, I'm really excited and nervous. Tomorrow (actually later today) I'm going to make my first proposal to my doctor for his fish tank. I just started my own business, Kent's Aquatics. Were going to do aquarium, pond and fountain maintenance, set ups, scuba lessons, and boat services.
I'm so nervous about this. I've never run a business before, but I'm tired of working for someone else doing something I hate. I'd rather tell myself what to do doing something I like, you know?
Heres a copy of my business card, what do you guys think? I'm almost done with my web page, www.kentsaquatics.com
Anyways, I thought I'd share the excitement!! Wish me luck!!

If you have your divemaster's ticket, you will want to advertise that....and the fact that you are bonded and insured, too (I would go minimum $50,000 liability for the tank service and $5 million on the dive lessons). Good luck!

Thanks guys!! I think my doctors office is going to hire me! They sounded impressed and liked my price

Well, its my dad that does the dive lessons, hes above a dive master. I could only fit so much on the business card He has the insurance for that (thank god, outrageously expensive), I'm almost done getting the insurance wrapped up for the tank services.

Seems like you need a flyer then.. I didnt realize all that information was on the buisness card.
Good Luck!
How did you deside on how much to charge for this service? (there isnt any businesses that does this in my area)
I had a dream of doing this at one point but thought it would be better if I worked doing it first, I cant do that considering there isnt any work in this area..
