    Not much, maybe 1000-1500?? Don't expect it to happen overnight. You are going to have to learn how to bid, find really good accounts, collect some of the money you earned, etc.

    I wouldn't go into this biz unless I had all equipment I needed plus 4 months of living expenses already in the bank.

    the figure which you may end up with in yoru first month may be choppy and not as good as what you may have liked. you have to remember that this biz will start rough and some months are better than others.

    dont get down on your starting figures, stay plugging away and dont get discouraged.

    I think around $160 :eek:

    But then I have learned as time went on. The important thing is not where you start in life, but where you end up, and your memories along the way. Keep growing, that's what's important.

    If you start with just one penny the first month, but double your income every month for 2 and a half years, you're now talking over $10,000,000 a month!!!!!!!!payup

    not that it is going to happen, but you get the idea.
    You just have to get that nice little snowball made, and then let it roll down the hill, collecting all the money as it goes!!!
