One of my favorite things to do has always been to cater special events for people. I never wanted to go to school to get involved in the business because I felt that it would be a waste of time and money, but I loved to cook and bake and do all those fun things in the kitchen. I started catering whenever I was still in college, but I started purchasing my own catering equipment right after I graduated from college. I had a lot of friends who were requesting my food for their weddings, and I wanted to give that to them. They paid me well, which I liked, because I did not have a job prospect right out of college. I was happy to get involved in the business, and then a woman at a wedding ended up hiring me to work in her shop since she had her own catering business. I did that part time while I still catered on my own because that was where I was making the big bucks.
