Currently, I'm a home chocolate maker in the 10 - 12 lbs per month range.  Been at this for three plus years.  Plan to set up as a Cottage Food Operator in California in the next year starting only with direct (in-person) sales.  My focus is single-origin dark chocolate bars using only cocoa beans and sugar.
