Becoming a Wine Importer --- worth it?

How difficult is it?

I've been entertaining some thoughts of doing this while in England, ideally, with a focus on CA wines as there is a serious dearth of good U.S. selections out here. Thing is, I have absolutely no idea what it would entail to get this off the ground, or if it would be worth my trouble.
