How much practical experience do I need to start working for myself?

I am studying AAT level 2. I am looking to get a paid job, whilst studying levels 3 & 4. After a year, or so of experience in an accounting practice, I want to start working for myself. I will look for someone with experience, who I can go to for advice, in return for being paid. Is this practical?

Thanks everyone

    One years experience is nowhere near enough if you intend to offer a full tax and accounts service for small businesses, but if it is solely book-keeping then maybe.
