19. do it but don't burn any bridges
I did the same thing (own my own store, not bartending) when I was about 45. Within 3 months I knew it was not for me but I stuck it out (for a total of 18 months) because I had a lease. One of the things that got me was I couldn't shake the feeling that I could make as much in my profession working only 150-20 hours per week as I was making in the store working 50.

I'm glad, on balance, I did it. Because now I know there are lots worse things than being a lawyer. It helped me appreciate what I did like about my profession and what I did not like so when I went "back on the market" I knew what to stay away from.
