Love it that guys assume there's something wrong with your game when you voice some concerns. Damn talk about ass backwards.

I'd say go for it, you'll have a blast no matter what happens.
Besides; as a pro poker player you can pursue this without going broke (presuming your decent).

Been told to go away, don't talk to me, go fuck yourself, and I'm not interested by over three thousand women and groups of people. I can handle rejection better than anyone on this lot if not city. Not only that, I never leave. I will follow the customer across the fucking street if I have to. I simply do not give a fuck. I close.

Yeah, as a poker player I have the freedom to go in many directions.  Pursuing it and becoming it are two different things.  The big commiment is paying for flights every single weekend go to bootcamps and getting enough poker horus in during the weekdays.  Right now I play just a couple of hours a poker a day and go out pretty much every single night... so this would just mean i'd probably only be going on for bootcamps.   I guess i'll look at it more as investing time and money on myself more so than saying that i'm trying to be an instructor.

You could try to find a few cities that are near each other (short flights) and try to reduce your flying time as much as possible.
Go out during the week a few times as well to keep sharp.
I don't know your hourly rate but playing the tables for a few hours a day should be plenty to sustain you and very possible if you;
don't drink and manage your time a bit. Perhaps hire a indian personal assistant to handle some of the miscelanous stuff.
Not gonna be easy but very possible. If you can make it in poker then you've got the ability too put in the hours.
If you really want this you can assist in the occasional bootcamp and start saving up during the weekdays for a massive 3 months of growing.


To stick with the poker theme;
When I was learning poker just for the sake of learning poker; No money considerations, no rewards other then the obligatory 'measure how far I am by how much points I earn', I made a lot of money and had fun learning.
Then when I started making money I wanted to earn more; thats when my game broke down and I seriously had to reasses it.
When you say, I want to become a instructor it hints at the second mindset.
