Am I crazy?

I am working on opening a tanning salon. Where we live there are only franchise salons other that a hair salon with one tanning bed in the back. Am I crazy for doing this? I am planning on opening in mid December. Any thoughts would be appreciated. I do have name, equipment, and location picked out and am working on my business plan and financing. Also, I am considering leasing my equipment. What is your take on that as well?

Thank you!

Well you have your open timing right. Best to open when you can make the money, not in the summer.
