If I had a really good business plan in place, had done my market research and really knew the business that I was getting into then yes I would and I have :)
Opening a store or starting your own business can be and is very scary, the best thing you can do is work with your local small biz adminstration. They offer free help to new business owners especially those doing it for the first time, they have great advice, know the area, can help you with your business blan and market research and help you work out any potential issues ahead of time. They are one of the best resources out there when starting up a new business.
Just keep in mind your first year or two will be rough, you might just pay the bills and bring home little profit, advertising is huge. Those first two years you are branding yourself, getting your name out there and building your rep. If you believe in it then do it :)
