Own residential painting business?

Now don’t come here with negative comments, please. So I’m looking into becoming a painters apprentice (I have some prior experience but not residential). One day I’d look to possibly open my own residential painting business. What goes into that? This is a goal of mine, which I do understand it will take time and patience etc. but just curious if anyone has started their own painting business?

    Very reasonable goal. First learn to paint. Then you can try finding weekend side work. When you go out on your own, you need to be able to find work which is not always easy.

    Im not a painter but Ive sold a few cars to them. One bought a station wagon, another a truck.

    Finding enough work to go on your own is probably the biggest challenge.
