Honestly, I don't think you're being realistic in your expectations of what you can accomplish online. It takes months if not a year or more to learn how to drive targeted traffic to a website and learn how to sell. And huge profits can't be realistically expected until year two. Additionally, you will have to incorporate a lot of customer service-oriented skills into running a profitable website, as you will need to build relationships with others online and on your site.
