Is opening my own shop realistic?

Hi all,

I'm considering a career change and going to Wyotech or UTI for training. I've always loved cars and trucks and think it may be more enjoyable to me than my current profession (counseling, which I've done for 4 years).

My question is...If I did complete the training at a technical school (e.g. UTI), and then worked for someone for a few years...how realistic would it be for me to open my own garage?

I could probably get my family to cosign for a building, but why don't so many other people do this? Why work for a dealer or shop owned by other people?

Please help?
