Approx, how long and how much did you have to work and save before starting your small business?

I'm 17, turning 18 in a month. Currently, I only have two casual jobs but I really want a full-time job. I want to someday start my own business as an ice cream/food truck/van driver. I know I'll need to save up a lot of money first. Approx, how much money would I need before I start this type of business? Plus, how long did you need to work to get this amount of money? To make it simpler to understand "Food truck driver".
