How much should I have save for personal expenses when starting a business?

I'm trying to start a small business but don't know how much I should have saved up for personal expenses like Rent, Util and food. Should I have enough to last me 6 months or 1 year? I dont know what a good cushion amount would be. I know most businesses fail their first year. So should I save up 1 year's worth?
