    Hi

    Let's start with/from you.
    Let's begin with/from you.

    --- Are both correct?

    Hi

    But is "with" just your preference and "from" is also passable?

    There could be certain circumstances where we might use "starting from you" but I can't think of any right now, whereas, "starting with you" works in all circumstances that I can think of.
