Just do some math.
According to your rule, you'd start off playing NL10 until you have 30 buy-ins for NL25. And play that until you have 30 buy-ins for NL50 etc.
NL10: $50 -> $750 = 70 buy-ins
NL25: $750 -> $1500 = 30 buy-ins
NL50: $1500 -> $3000 = 30 buy-ins
NL100: $3000 -> $6000 = 30 buy-ins
So after winning 160 buy-ins you'd be playing NL200 which can easily make you 1K per week.
Obviously the assumption is that you can hold your own every time you move up. 160 buy-ins are 8000ptBB. You divide that by (how many hands you play per hour/100 * your winrate) to find out how many hours of play it will take you.
Assuming a winrate of 1.5ptBB and 350 hands per hour as an example, you'd calculate:
8,000ptBB / ((350hr/100)*1.5ptBB) = 1,524hr.
Assuming 30 hours of play per week it would take you 51 weeks. All these numbers are somewhat arbitrary as it's just an example.
