in terms of making money after buying equipment and advertising... no. i didnt make anything. But i made enough money to buy 15-20k worth of equipment and marketing. all i used for advertising this year was craigslist and word of mouth! well besides the 3 or 4 who called from a flier i hadnt out. lol. next year im going to do a whole lot more in terms of marketing so hopefully i will grow 2-3x as big from where i am now client based.
