Not enough! You asked an open ended question. The answer is how hard do you wanna work. There are studios making over $500,000 per year but realistically speaking it really depends on how much you wanna work and how good your work is. With good business practices and quality you can make some pretty good money. Part time vs Full time, specializing, African, there is too much open to answer that.

Well put nctaxi. Everyone is different and the biggest variablesare 'how hard do you want to work' and 'if you do good work'. If you work hard and do good work...then you can do well. Although if you work hard and put out $hitty work...well then your burning your bridges and it will catch up with you eventually. By all means, don't expect to work 30 hours a week and bring in six figures..

I am no taxi but I know that it is like anything it is slow at first you will have to buy everything and get started. When that is all paid for. Then it is time to upgrade. It is a never ending thing. The harder you work the better it will pay off.

Tell Steve that Greg said hello. I don't advertise at all, thank goodness, I have all I want right now. The best thing I did for my business was to mount a doe and put it at the local bowshop. I get more business from that doe than any other thing that I tried.
