Expert powerstroke mechanic Opinion needed

My idea is as follows. I have a shop with all the necessary tools and lifts to do any sort of work. 250,000 dollar building. Huge bay doors. All the welding equipment a man could need.

I have about 10,000 dollars cash in my back pocket. An extensive knowledge of thermodynamics, diesel theory, and good mechanic practice.

I want somebody that has done it to step up and tell me what it takes to start a business working on powerstroke diesels. I have owned several and know what it takes to maintain and repair.

Questions I have.

~certifications available/needed? If even necessary.

~How to advertise and target possible work?

~Should I be more fleet or performance oriented?

~Where to order parts or how to get a wholesale agreement?

~What kind of employee's should I seek out and how do I pay them?

~I'm located right in the middle of a hub with only one other petty diesel shop.

~How to bill? How much per hour? Bill book hours or actual hours?

All these diesel trucks are HUGE liabilities/assets and I know working people are willing to pay to keep them on the road making money.
