How do I begin to pursue a career in photography?

I have been working as an occupational therapist for 10 years but have a passion for photography.. I don't really know where to start when it comes to pursuing it as a career, and feel somewhat daunted by the idea of trying to work in what feels like an "exclusive" arena. I don't necessarily even need to rely on photography as my sole source of income, but would love to find a way to earn some money doing what I love. Any links to helpful websites or people who are willing to mentor would be most appreciated.
