Enough to meet all financial obligations for the business and the owner for at least 6 months, to start out. That means you can go up to 6 months with no profit, and that could happen. Once there is an established customer base and steady revenue stream, that could be reduced, but I can tell you from experience that keeping it will help you get through a recession like 2008 without losing your home.
