Some sage advice from some knowledgeable people above.

One thing to remind yourself going in, mistakes will happen, some really bad and possibly have to start over at a loss. Try not to think your going to get $20,000 first few times out.

I have a good friend from the Marines. He started in his garage 25 years ago making cabinets for people local. Then got a big job that took alot of capitol and time. That went well, but was stressful for him. That job led to another big one and now 25 years later he ONLY makes custom order stuff well over $50,000 a hit. No website, no employees, does it all by himself. Works out of a converted 3 story firehouse last 15 years. And takes 4-6 weeks off a year. If you met him you would never know, very low key and just takes life like it is.

2 things, 1. he stayed at it even when it was very hard. 2. guy never got married.
