Hey Everyone....searcher here in California. Im self funded searcher.

If you are looking at an Electrical Contracting business or even businesses like residential painting you have to acquire a license and in California it requires proof of experience and passing a test.

So my questions are as follows:

1. If you plan to be the CEO do you just avoid these businesses altogether since I dont have years of experience as a journeyman?
2. Do you appoint a key employee as the Responsible Managing Officer (RMO) to hold the license? If so how do you mitigate risk here? Have multiple back up license holders that can be moved into RMO/RME role if main RMO departs business?

Anyone have thoughts or resources to link to? Ive read many resources from law firms that talk about the requirements but im looking for someone who has actually navigated this successfully. Thank you
