How much can you make?

So I'm in the final stages of getting my carpet cleaning business up and running. I'll be offering 8 different services: carpet cleaning services, tile & grout cleaning services, upholstery cleaning services, mattress cleaning, auto, boat & rv cleaning services, air duct cleaning services, dryer vent cleaning services, and power washing services. I am wondering starting out as a one man business, what type of income can you make and then when you grow to get an employee and start having crews how much of an income potential are we realistically looking at? I realize this varies, but I would like to get a general idea.

One of my friends makes 60kish working with a partner in Phoenix doing residential/office cleaning. Another friend grosses ~4 mil, not sure on net, does carpet cleaning and some other things for commercial locations and I believe has around 30 crews last time I asked. I'm sure there are cleaning businesses grossing 100 mil or more. Weird answer but I'm just trying to give examples... it's too general.

If you go and grow your business to Molly Maids size, think in the millions. If you don't put a lot of effort into it then think $10,000 a year. It is a very subjective question.

Thanks for everyone's input, I found out from a neighbor who owns a carpet cleaning business, that with my services I'll be offering I am looking at $70,000 part time to $150,000 full time earnings in my area. Thanks again for everyone's help on this.
