Tossing the 9to5 for a life on the water.Ideas/exeperiences?

Hello,
I''m a former liveaboard from Oceanside Ca. Now living in Denver. Came to Denver for marriage.. now divorced. I owned/lived aboard a Hans Christian 34 for a couple of years. My intention was to live my life on the water and explore the world. Marriage required compromise to that idea which was fine at the time. I''m now 40 and single and want to do something truly exceptional. Life is short and I''m committed to make the most of it. I''m currently in business insurance sales and looking to free myself from this. I would like to be cruising within 3 years. The plan is to live the life I love and find ways to make money while doing it. Anybody out there have the experience of tossing it all in at a relatively young age for a life on the water ? Any ideas on creating income? I can fix or build anything, especially on a boat, including engine and sewing work. I''m a carpenter by nature but would love to find other ways to create income. Photography? diving? boat delivery? Charter Captain? What have any of you done or witnessed as an opportunity while cruising the world? Would love to hear your experiences and suggestions.
