Start a radio show that is intresting. Outside of houston there is a radio station where you can rent the place by the hour. For under $100 an hour you can have your own show. There MAY be something like that in yoru area.

Strategy: create a radio show which you can syndicate and sell

1. Become an expert on SOMETHING that would intrest people
I would sugest that you try and find an area that people would be intrested in and devolp yourself in that area. Be strategic about your choice here and pick something that can do which people would be intrested in.

2. Learn about the business
GO learn about how radio works. Houston, has a pacifica radio station that is for the public to use. You can volunteer and work on a show and pretty quickly get put "on the air". Read some books about syndication ect.

3. Figure out an intreting way to present yourself.

You can do all of this while your still working so you can build up some money and not take all the risk at once. If it looks like a bad idea two weeks from now you've still got your job.
