Yes.. Another newbie.. well not so new

Hello everyone... I am a former Jani-King franchisee and I have decided to go out on my own. I was a franchisee about 15 years ago or so and I was able to make a living with them for a while. Operationally I feel very sound but it is the sales, marketing and the true business owner aspect that I am a little weak. I certainly don't mind speaking to people and I am not shy nor timid but I just lack the experience in the professional end of the business. Do you guys have any suggestions? I am looking fo calculators (software or spreadsheets) for bidding, sample contracts and just any forms that can help. I have already started putting the businees together from cards, brochures, business name and website. I have set a target start date of Nov 15 (give or take depending) to begin marketing and operations. I will be doing this part time in the beginning as I am currently a school teacher (private school computer teacher). I love what I do and the kids but teaching just doesn't pay. I am also a disabled veteran. But I would love to get any suggestions from any of you guys to make this venture work and the quickest way to get my teaching income replaced.

I will hire cleaners and inspect every night (assuming I get a contract sometime ) until I can replace my income. I plan on marketing right after school and being at a private school I do have contacts in the business community that could potentially be of help.

Thanks for any advice!
