    Welcome to our slice of heaven here at SMF. There are to many variables to consider in your question. The best advice I received was a question: How do you eat an elephant - one bite at a time. Just set a goal, make a game plan, read the old posts, reinvest all your profits and before you know it you will meet your goal. Starting with just a pickup, within a year I had everything I needed to make a living at it. Good luck.
    Give back more to this world than we take.
