Is the non-compete agreement legal? Posted on March 28, 2011

I'm a former employee and was recently released from a small business, my employer had me sign a no compete statement saying "I wouldn't go into business in the same trade for 365 consecutive days upon termination of employment." Are there any legalities that could happen to me if I did go into the same trade and can something like this be legal in the state of Florida if it is only a single statement? Mind you, I was never given a copy of that written statement either...
