So here I am, having worked a retail job for 12/hr for 1.5 years now, running a computer repair service as a sole proprietor, and I come across a small-medium managed services startup who wants to hire me as a regular employee, not temp, and I find myself afraid to leave my stable job to break into IT like I've always wanted to.

The position is for an NOC Engineer, on-call. I realize the workload will likely be high but it's got to be better than retail. I could use this experience to get all the certifications I need and then find a better job after that.

What do?

Have a fall back plan and don't burn bridges with the retail just in case things don't pan out. Make sure the on-call has enough hours to get you by otherwise you might need a part time job on the side.

I can always drive for Uber if I ever encounter a period of unemployment. I've made enough on the side driving that if I really needed to I could pay my monthly living expenses ($1400) but would hate to rack up all those miles.

Go for it, you can always relegate your business to something on the side for a little extra cash. You don't know when another opportunity like this will come along to grow your skills.

Very true, and this opportunity is very exciting, whereas the thought of going to work the following day currently fills me with dread.
