It's a great story you have, and my hat is doffed to you for your attitude and outlook on life. I've recently toyed with similar ideas, but literally can't afford to leave a well paid position to try going pro, partly due to the competition, and partly because I still have so much to learn!
Keith makes a good point, and it got me thinking. If you could combine some aspect of photography with another service, you might get the best of both worlds (and increase the viability of your business case). So I'm talking doing websites for local businesses, but specialising in providing great product shots and custom imagery. Or brochures. Or estate agent house advertising. You get the idea. Something that compliments photography, but doesn't completely depend on it?
You could then look to branch out from there, knowing that you have a fairly steady income from the more basic side of photography work.
