Do it!!! When I started my company it was the scariest time of my life. It was such a great feeling but obviously taking the risk of failure. I'm pretty hardnosed though so I've hung in there strong for 5 years now. This year has been the best so far being that I'm booked solid to November at this point. There's a lot of ups and downs but I've learned to take things in stride and stay calm (that's where fishing helps too)
