    Is there anyway some of the commercial guys here could post some of their number of hives and income for the year.

    I really want some hope that I can do what I love and actually provide for my family. This would help me see the bigger picture for sure. I haven't quit my day job yet...but that is my eventual goal. I love beekeeping and would love to do this for a living. Thanks guys for your time!
    If someone has been running a bee business as their only financial source for some years then there is enough money in it for them to manage.

    When I went for my interview to become a special agent, the agent-in-charge asked me what my college major was. When I told him criminal justice, he about spit his coffee out. He told me to change it to a business related field because our agency had lots of great investigators and produced many fantastic people who were great at investigating, but made lousy managers. So I did. it is probably the only time I took some advice. I changed my degree to Accounting and obtained a BBA. Best decision I ever made. I cant tell you how much I use what I learned every day. Of course, as soon as HQ learned I had an accounting degree they took me off of rape, robbery and murder and put me in a fraud unit. That was about as funny as a screen door on a submarine, but a story for another time.
