    I am working on a business plan at this time. I know I need insurance and to referrer my business name. I do not have any equipment this time. I want to start small and work at this part time.I would like to have enough work to keep me working part time next spring about 30 to 40 hours week. My goal is to build up my business enough to be able to go full time after two years. I would be working by myself at this time and may hire a couple of helpers if I need to later.Is it possible to make60,000 to 70,ooo a year with a one man operation?
