I don't mind putting in the time it would take to learn if its worth it.

Thank you

This is the really your entire premise. You want assurances that if you put in the time, effort, education and all the sacrifices you will come out ahead? I am sorry to say, no one can guarantee that.

So here are some questions that you should answer and be honest with yourself as far as taking risk.

1) Did I take risks in the last 10 years that most did not to advance your career and financial situation?
2) Do I over analyze thing to the point of analysis paralysis?
3) Can I leave with uncertainty?
4) Do I have risk capital that I am willing to par with entirely?

These are just some of the questions that you need to examine whether you have the risk tolerance and risk capital to get into such a venture.

I hope that I don't come across as someone who gives you a lecture or worse arrogantly tells you what to do. I am merely reflecting on my experience on those who have been in this game for a long time. Whatever you decide, I wish you the best of luck.
