Been telling myself that every day for the past four years.  I think
if you look at the history of some of the businesspeople on the list,
you'll see a lot of bootstrapping, with pre-funding periods of 5 years
or more the norm.  Not to say the businesses weren't profitable during
their "incubation".  Maybe you can work on a small part of your plan
while you're at your day job, and start with a less comprehensive
service offering.
