The only person stopping you is you. Their will always be negative people. And they never stop. Did the Wright brothers shut up all the idiots that said man can never fly? Nope. They just changed their tune. Started saying that man would never be able to fly long distances. Once that was disproved they said that man couldn't fly fast. That man couldn't fly cheaply. Couldn't fly safely. (despite news stories to the contrary flying still has fewer deaths per capita than driving).

There is only one reason not to do this. If YOU don't think you can. If YOU want to be on more stable financial footing. Then do that first and then go chase your dream.

Don't let pessimists talk you out of reaching for the stars.
Don't let optimists talk you out of having your feet on the ground.
