There are but two things that determine what can do in life: your attitude and level of effort. The only obstacle I can think of is the number of jobs available versus the number of applicants. If you are truly interested, start getting involved in your local Community Emergency Response Team (CERT). This is more of a response group, but you will learn a lot you can apply toward Business Continuity. There are schools that, now, offer a Masters in Business Continuity Planning. Disaster Recovery Institute International also offers a course and a different levels of professional certificates. Most companies will look for a college degree as well as the professional certifications, This can be a very rewarding line of work. Best of luck!
