    Documentation & Tax

    Thanks a lot Levi, I've got quite a bit of work to do before I can officially get the ball rolling; I'm forever procrastinating saying to myself "Oh, I'll get more agency experiance and I'll come back to it a little later" But I suppose if I keep saying that I'll never do it..
