Dream of Sailing as a living

Now I am a long way off from reaching my dream; still have to learn to, and get a boat, for one. But I have no clue as to what kind of costs to expect at Marinas, maintenance, and just general living. But from what I hear, it is a small fortune. Short of having ALOT of money saved up, what can you do to earn money as you sail? I hear chartering is already a packed industry.

Also, if you know of any good books, non-fiction prefered, that cover all the aspects of long-term cruising and good destinations, please drop a line. Thank you.
