I have been in business since September of 2007. There were dry patches and times I thought of going back to waitressing, but as I sit here today and think back to what I have accomplished over the very short time in business, I am quite pleased and very happy I made the transition to become a personal chef.
My business is right where I had hoped it would be in my initial business plan and I am happily working steadily two days a week with clients that appreciate the service in addition to giving cooking lessons, small dinner parties and working the odd gift certificates. I have plenty of time for myself and my family and find my income is just enough to keep me happy. I can take on another weekly client if I choose, or not. That’s the beauty of it, I can choose.
I may not be making a mint, but this was a lifestyle decision. I now have a career and a life. Imagine that!?! I have even found a niche to do some writing and have decided to take continuing education classes with an online university.
Thank you APPCA and all it’s members for your continuing support!
