I am tf so my growth rate is slower plus in Canada with s shorter season. Plus I'm just not that good. Plus I am very happy with just linear growth and consolidation at this point. I made a bunch of boxes yesterday, about a 1/10 of what I may need this season. My main concern is comb. Don't have enough of it. This season will be devoted to it. Another thing with expansion is that revenue is always a year or 2 behind but your expenses are up front. I probably won't make much honey this year and can only sell a few nucs as I want to fill up another yard with them.From 40 to 90 is not aggressive splitting. 10 to 100 is a joke. But maybe he will get to 50 which is still asking a lot but Florida is forgiving. The old pay me a penny for the first nail to shoe your horse and only 2 cents for the second etc would put him at his numbers faster with more knowledge and strong bees that would make a crop and be strong enough for pollination. Make 1 into 3 early every year. 30, 90, 270, 810, 2430, 7290 and finally he has arrived. That is if he keeps every single one alive. He has I hope proven to himself that isn't the case.
He will not be able to afford all the woodenware and frames to do it. He will need 500,000 frames alone to accomplish this task of 10,000. That's a million plus dollars.
Its just not going to happen. I dont like to see anyone fail, but. If he had a rich daddy willing to fund him a few million maybe.
And as for setting high goals at least make them attainable.
