    Great point and often over looked by some when starting a business, any business. In addition to what has been recommended to reading Renny Doyle's book, do educate yourself on business principles. One of the main reasons business's fail is failure to understand business practices. Also, it sounds like you may be new to detailing, if so I recommend after practice and learning on your own vehicle, offer to do family and friends and ask for feedback from them.

You might consider investing in one of Mike Phillips detailing classes before you set your sights on opening a business. Detailing is hard on your body. Starting at 50 is not impossible, but it will take some muscle building before you start 8 hour days.
    That's for sure. I'm 70 years old, but still at, just slower. 50 is as good as 30 if you're in good shape.
    Do 3 complete corrections and sealant in one week. If that doesn't kill your drive, then go for it.
    It's a complete different ball game when you step up full time from a hobby.
