It's hard work, believe me. If you commit yourself fully to it, it can also be incredibly rewarding.
Expect long hours, and not much time skiing. The summer is another huge proble, as any cashflow slows to a trickle. Always be honest and open with suppliers etc, communication is so important.
Be realistic, and build yourself up slowly over time.
Good luck with it, give it everything you've got, and you'll do well!
