Fuck yeah it is user. Fist off you young so you got time to play the field in business. You will learn a lot and not all of it will be pleasent.
Peiple will try and steal your shit a lot. Let them and call the cops. Not worth a suit. Preferably if u see them a lot let them try a second time and stall for the cops. Tell them your machine broke and go in back room and call and stall. Cameras are your friend.

Dont give up. Go for gold.
I got a failed trucking company on the books. Pretty much broke even gor a year. I regret nothing. Lessons learned. Loyal fanbase since i simultainiously started a brand.
