One could dream, but I think I would lose all my hair. I might not be capable to take that amount of stress without getting ill.

Maybe years ago, but after seeing how much my dad hates it- a guy who owns his own business, and how much work it is, it seems like a very unappealing prospect.

Remembered another one. A blended anime/cartoon studio catering to the internet market over a national television market. If the manga or manhwa does better online in a foreign language, then the anime should also do well if done right.

I did run my own business for 8 years. It was called Computer Wizard, and did computer repair. Eventually, tablets and smart phones replaced home computers and I had to close. I honestly should have after 5 or 6 years, but refused to give up the dream.

I you want to go into business, try to find one that won't become obsolete. Having to lose that kind of freedom and go back to doing what a boss says is painful.

I always imagine what it would be like to run an indie movie theater but I wouldn't know where to begin and it would most likely tank within 2 years.

I have. Back in high school I was part of an organization called Business Professionals of America. I was part of a group that formed a "small business team" and we had to present our ideas at local/state competitions. It was rather fun and got me interested in wanting my own business someday.

I doubt that would happen, but it was a dream long ago.

Yes. And then I think of the logistics nightmares and don't want to as badly anymore.

A coffee shop since we don't have a Starbucks here I think I would be able to make out fine.

I have thought about it after I retire here in a few years. If I decide not to stick around as a consultant of sorts then I'll probably do something small on the side.

I would totally visit there. For the food/drinks of course...

My mom used to talk about opening a bakery where she'd sell her almond cheesecakes. I always thought that sounded fun when I was a child. As I got older, I used to think about all sorts of businesses that might be fun. I tried starting a business when I finished college running a BBS system, but they ended up inventing Mosaic and the internet pretty much ran all the BBS sysops out of business. I think my most recent thoughts were that it would be fun to run a tea room and serve various teas and accompaniments. I get Tea Time magazine and they're always advertising conferences and courses on how to run a tea room.

I dream of one day owning my own bookstore.

Most likely not going to happen. Too many bookstores going out of business.
