Thanks for the info, I have always had the spirit to be my own boss. Currently I am working (commission) for a magazine and this is the first time I have worked for commission. We shall see. I have started a personal meal service for seniors as this is my field of knowledge, both cooking and seniors. Everyone is telling me this is a great idea, but I am having some issues in believing it myself. Every little tidbit I read is getting me closer to spending more time on this thought. I am doing some catering for the local Gallery and have one senior client now. The more I read the better I feel this can be a great business. Thanks for the moral support!
