Hi Mike,

Welcome to our forum!

What kinds of things have you been doing so far to get those customers and what kinds of marketing are you looking to do as you grow?

Have you planned it out and figured what number of customers you will need in order to go fulltime with your business?

That's great you got a figure. I'd say put that up on the way and chip away at it until you reach your goal and get to go full time with your business.
