The tax info and license thing are facts not “beliefs”.
A lot of people here have started their business without insurance, they also didn’t need a stupid license. For me it was, start a business with very little or just put off my dream of starting a business. Sometimes in life you have to just go for it. Starting with very little and being upfront about it can go a long way. When people asked me if I had insurance I told them the truth. It sounds like you are new to business. Let me give you some valuable info, many storefront business and residential clients don’t care that much about insurance or whats on paper. Residential clients make decisions based on their gut not what is on paper. When they asked I told them that I didn’t have insurance and I barely had experience and they they hired me to do the work because I am confident and that gave them confidence. Business is about what you can do not what is on paper, this is the real world not school. When they are face to face with me they know I am the right guy for the job. You have to sell yourself, always be selling!
