Give away everything you own, except maybe a change of clothes for now, close your bank accounts and deal with any other such things. While you're doing this, find a good teacher or at least a good monastery, and arrange for a time to enter the community. Then do it.
All the best!

I can identify now with the part of the Buddha's life where he felt a sense that, on leaving his home, if he was to wake his wife and child up he knew he wouldn't be able to leave. That whole moment is charged in a way it never was before, now that I am doing something similar.
