Consider what you'll do if you pursue this venture and it doesn't work out. I'm a headhunter by trade, and work mainly with finance and accounting people. I've run into more than my fair share of people who left gainful employment with the hope of being the next Gordon Gekko (and I'm not saying that is your goal). When these people find me (because God knows I'm not looking for them) it is because they have failed and want to find their way back into the workforce. Most of the employers I work with are a pretty risk-averse bunch, especially accounting types. They aren't interested in taking a chance on investing time and training in someone that has already shown they're willing to throw it all away to chase a dream. They want to mitigate their risk.
I'm not saying you're going to fail here. What I saying is consider your exit strategy. If it doesn't work out it will be a black mark on your resume that will prejudice future employers against you.
