Anyone Ever Think about Starting/Owning a trade or Service Business?

I was at the boat ramp this past weekend and couldn't help but notice 8 out of 10  "nice" boats being put in were towed by an F150 or F250 Platinum with a business name on the side. Has anyone had experience or thought of owning a service business? A family friend owns a chimney sweep business of all things and seems to kill it. Getting out of the rat race has been appealing recently.

Starting? Absolutely not. Buying and scaling one? For sure.
