Go for it!  But realise that its not going to be easy and things take time and there are LOTS of sacrifices to make. Also make sure you learn from your mistakes - because you will make them. It is really only a mistake if you don't learn from it.

Realist?
Realist 
Realists are usually interested in 'things' - such as buildings, mechanics, equipment, tools, electronics etc. Their primary focus is dealing with these - as in building, fixing, operating or designing them. Involvement in these areas leads to high manual skills, or a fine aptitude for practical design - as found in the various forms of engineering.

Realists like to find practical solutions to problems using tools, technology and skilled work. Realists usually prefer to be active in their work environment, often do most of their work alone, and enjoy taking decisive action with a minimum amount of discussion and paperwork.

Job Clubs

Job Clubs provide training to assist participants who are ready for work, to develop skills which they can use to find a job.

Anyone who is ready to work and is between 16 and 64 years of age can join a Job Club. Participants do not have to be on a social welfare payment but if they are, it will not be affected by becoming a member of a Job Club.

Training areas offered by Job Clubs range from Health and Safety, to Interview Techniques and generally last up to 4 weeks (see Course Content and Duration).

Job Club participants retain their social welfare allowances during the training modules and receive €20 per week to help in dealing with additional costs.
