CMJ-Enterprise was founded by Mark R. Jones and registered in PASCO County as a company in November of 2016. Just an FYI: The name "CMJ" stands for "Cindy & Mark Jones". Possessing more than 30 years of home improvement and commercial construction knowledge, Mark has constantly been involved in carpentry to some degree. From fabricating custom work centers for manufacturing, to building theatrical sets for church... Mark has always had a deep passion for creative projects utilizing design, art, and carpentry. Brian, a coworker from Mark's past says "his skill set is through the roof". Other close friends have nick-named him "Sparky" for his contagious laughter, and ability to tell stories that stir our thoughts and emotions.
After the sale/acquisition of Mark's 24 year long-term business in 2006, and a hand-full of income properties. The decision was made to seek employment in the Trinity Florida area, leading to a management position for a plastics engineering company in Port Richey. After 12 years of employment in the Military / Aerospace manufacturing industry, Mark reluctantly decided to pursue self-employment once again. Hence, the birth of CMJ-Enterprise. See all the legal stuff below.

Certificate of Liability Insurance General liability insurance protects your company from losses due to negligence that damages property or people. The type of losses your company is protected from depends on the policy language but, in general, includes medical expenses, property repair or replacement and the expenses incurred in defending a lawsuit. It's often a contractual requirement to have sufficient general liability insurance; even when it's not required, it's a sound business practice. For example, the lease for your company's principal place of business may require your company to purchase minimum insurance coverage that protects the lessor as well as your company. As proof that your company has complied with this requirement, your insurer will provide you with a certificate of liability insurance to give to the lessor. The certificate is a summary of your company's liability insurance coverage. AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST
Surety Bonds A surety bond guarantees that your company will meet its legal and contractual obligations. State and federal law often require a surety bond as a condition for obtaining a license to lawfully conduct business. For example, California law requires all licensed contractors to post a surety bond in favor of the state in the amount of $12,500. The bond can be used to compensate anyone who suffers damages caused by the contractor's violation of the state licensing law. Government agencies in Texas that contract with construction companies for public works projects are required to have the companies obtain a performance bond that ensures completion of the project.

Workers' compensation is a form of insurance providing wage replacement and medical benefits to employees injured in the course of employment in exchange for mandatory relinquishment of the employee's right to sue their employer for the tort of negligence. The trade-off between assured, limited coverage and lack of recourse outside the worker compensation system is known as "the compensation bargain". One of the problems that the compensation bargain solved is the problem of employers becoming insolvent as a result of high damage awards. The system of collective liability was created to prevent that, and thus to ensure security of compensation to the workers. Individual immunity is the necessary corollary to collective liability. While plans differ among jurisdictions, provision can be made for weekly payments in place of wages (functioning in this case as a form of disability insurance), compensation for economic loss (past and future), reimbursement or payment of medical and like expenses (functioning in this case as a form of health insurance), and benefits payable to the dependents of workers killed during employment.

Registration of a business name for a sole proprietor is generally uncomplicated, unless it involves the selection of a name that is fictitious, or “assumed.” The business owner is required to register with the appropriate local authorities, who will determine that the name submitted is not duplicated by another business entity. Furthermore, the business owner must complete a form submitted to the governing authority to acquire title as a “DBA” or "doing business as”. The authority in some states is the Secretary of State. The license for a sole proprietary business entitles the owner to hire employees and enlist the services of independent consultants. The owner carries the financial responsibility for all debts and/or losses suffered by the business, to the extent of using personal or other assets, to discharge any outstanding liabilities. The owner is exclusively liable for all business activities conducted by the sole proprietorship and accordingly, entitled to full control and all earnings associated with it. The general aspect according to general business law is that this type of business ownership does not embody a “legal entity” Furthermore, any attempted and unreliable distinctions of the business do not change the classification under this title.
An independent contractor is a natural person, business, or corporation that provides goods or services to another entity under terms specified in a contract or within a verbal agreement. Unlike an employee, an independent contractor does not work regularly for an employer but works as and when required, during which time he or she may be subject to law of agency. Independent contractors are usually paid on a freelance basis. Contractors often work through a limited company or franchise, which they themselves own, or may work through an umbrella company. An independent contractor can itself be a business with employees; however, in most cases in the United States independent contractors operate as a sole proprietorship or single-member limited liability company. This means the independent contractor, as a business owner, incurs its own expenses to provide the contracted service, must acquire its own equipment to perform the service, and is responsible for business filings such as income tax returns.
