I'm not sure how it works in FL, but in TX, you can just register an assumed name and file that with the state. Once accepted by the DOI, flyers, website, business cards, etc. are good to go...
Since you're starting out, it probably makes sense to go with a sole prop and re-evaluate after things take off.
What line of insurance do you plan to offer?
