i work 40 hours a week on cam, and generally take home between 700-1000 a week. the site i work for pays weekly instead of bi-weekly. i also lose a piece of my check to the studio i work for as a studio fee (which i could easily get rid of by working from home). But yeah, if you can stay online and have yourself a good setup (tv monitor, well lit room, HD webcam, etc) then you can totally make yourself some decent money. two grand seems kinda steep but i really only know what I've learned at the studio, and from the other girls here. good luck! it's a great job to have if you're nice and not too shy.
