I think your questions will have no clear answers.. I was hitting $50 a day in less than 3 months. In 6 months time i was able to setup my own office and business with full time staff - all thanks to affiliate marketing and I had only one site till that time.
However, in three years of affiliate marketing I have met a lot of people. I have met guys who have not been able to do the same in three years and I have met guys who are doing 300K plus a year in same time.
The difference is mainly in the approach each person took, energy put into the mission (don't confuse with number of hours per month) , aggression and mindset. Systemization, risk taking and leverage are the other things I found that made the difference. A lot will depend on your timings too..e.g. I found a service early on that gave my websites a big jump in rankings. Call it luck or call it risk taking. I was paying 300 dollar for that service while I was making only 600-700 dollars (and I had no other income source!). Similarly when I was setting my staff it was to eat on 70% of my revenues and I was putting almost all my money into infrastructure.. but after two months of loss it gave me the needed leverage!
Also, its important to find out what works for you, James find it better with social networking, I find it better with SEO and referral traffic, I know of a guy who does PPC only..
My point being you need to understand that its you who is going to determine your success and the speed of achieving it. So, if you are still thinking and on the verge of jumping in then its time to collect your full energy and just do it!
