I have a friend who has been in the buisness for 15 years and she can finally sit at home with this and be almost comfortable. She has over 350 breeding snakes at her house, but like I said almost comfortable. It takes many years to get where you want to be and do it full time. Unless you have enough money in your bank account that you can live (pay bills, buy food etc...) you better think about getting a job then when you get to a comfortable level, then do it full time, unless of course you are going to live at home till your 40 and never have to pay anything out. You just need to be sure 5 - 10 years down the road you will be sitting pretty and that is for sure the direction you wanna take your life. Not meaning to nag but a little advice never hurt anyone!!!
