Philly you can do it but you need to have a great game plan, cash flow to exceed 2 years, strong partners to spread the leverage around and some innovative ideas.
I still say share some space with a start up. Especially one who's expertise you can capitalize on. Be open 3 or 4 days a week and use the other days to lease office space or let some cater from there. Do that for 6 months and analyze where things are going. Are you getting the volume you want? How is the demand? How is your supply chain coming along? Cash flow?
Finally and im sure you know this. Surround yourself with people you know who have no problem disagreeing with you. They are the ones to trust.
Lots of overreaching going on here.
Some blacks were in fact sellers in the slave market. Whites spread it to other nation's.
The majority of upright humans never want to go back to those days.
Sadly, more are enslaved now than ever before due to human trafficking and drugs and cheap to free labor.
