With the economy how it currently is, starting a small business now is an awful decesion in my opinion. If i were you, i would try to get a job, preferbly high ranking, with a small/medium business in your fiell. Stay there for 1 or 2 years, if the economy is good, you will have experience to begin your own business and you should go for it. If the economy is only a little better, and if you have risen up any towards a CEO position perhaps, i would stay, and eventually take over that business, Starting a business is tough, experience is everything. I have seen a couple young people (around 21) that try to establish a ski, surf, or skate shop and they completely fell within 3 months. Also, planning is key.
trying to get one going.
Shit takes alot of research and work!
