yes 500 dollars every week is expecting way too much. you first year, I woud just worry about keeping yourself busy with work before you buy any second trucks or hire anyone legally or illegally.....I would say you should expect to not make money for the first 2 years of business. its not that you won't actually work and do any sales, but a new business is very needy. personally I'm about to finish up my 3rd season doing this full time, and when I say full time, I mean as my only source of income, and all my expenses are entered into billing system and i should be close to putting another 40,000 back into my company yet again, and my profits will be slim they could be pretty decent if I wanted to work much harder and be much less efficient but I prefer to make my life easier and get jobs done quicker...It takes time to grow and be able to take money from your business when you want to. especially being as young as I am.
