Be vigilant about avoiding the trappings of the industry
Running a bar -- though not as fun as you'd probably expect -- can be a gateway to a party scene unparalleled in any professional world.
"You are around booze all day," Wiley says. "It's so easy to get wrapped up in that world, and indulge in your own supply."
The world of bars is also a door to drugs, and a bevy of other vices. It takes a strong will sometimes to avoid these trappings.
"It's fun to party with your friends, sure, but sometimes having reliable friends around you can be helpful for that, too," Wiley says. "You can lean on them, and depend on them. So it's a double-edged sword."
