  1. @E11VeNE having a business is not important. When the state or gov puts out a contractyou can make a company by getting the correct filings registration etc….find a company that supplies what the contract is for and become a middleman(general contractor) and put your mark up on top of what ever you are supllying for the bid…this is information they are trying to get to common folk who cant find jobs or need bigger opportunity and dont know where to start.
