Becoming a food professional

Has anyone become a food professional as a second/third/fourth career? I'm on career #3 right now (business project management), but I think about going to culinary school daily. Anyone else thinking about this? Or, have you done it and are "living the dream"?
I went to visit NE Culinary 18 months ago, but their very intense restaurant-focused curriculum wasn't my cup of tea.
