Welcome to the forum, lots of good folks here willing to share their knowledge...Just got started myself with 2 Nucs exactly one month ago. It's been AWESOME! I'm really enjoying it.
Guessing on what I've invested so far, Allen is probably right on the profit potential. :)
Although, that's not my primary goal at the moment. I think some people do well with it. Are you planning on doing this with Honey production alone, or are you interested in doing cut outs, catching swarms, selling bees, queens, etc. etc.
Good luck and above all, enjoy your new found addiction....I know I have!
