retouch wannabe

Hi pretty new here and to retouching.
I'm in the process of learning photoshop cs 5 with the aid of some adobe learning software for visual comunications. I'm a pretty quick learner but the reality is i'm doing this solo with out knowing any retouchers or anyone in this
field. I love this type of work not like the job I currently have been doing for 28 yrs. I really want to become a retoucher and start a more enjoyable occupation. I will not need to make more than a supplement income at this.
I have always had a good artistic background that I think helps.
I have a couple books on retouching that I'll be going to next after my adobe training software. I put in about 20 hrs + a week into this now.
I know most retouchers seem to have related backgrounds getting into this.
can someone tell me if theirs a way to get into the market at a newbe level.
this site currently seems to be my window into this world and I like it.
