Welcome, @Capricciosa! Great to have you here. There are plenty of bakers here for you to exchange ideas and to whom you can share your knowledge. Interesting that you say you "can't see myself doing anything else." So true for so many of our field. The hours can be daunting, the workload can be overwhelming, the demands can be truly painful, alas it is a path from which many of us won't stray.  Again, welcome! 
@JTWTTaylor Welcome aboard! Food trucks are such a hot area in our industry! Your cautious, careful and calculated move into the field sounds like the right path. Your financial background is key! So many restaurants fail not because of poor food, but mismanagement of numbers. Certainly, a good demographic study and offering the right product are essential for success. Please keep us posted as move forward! Again, welcome aboard!

@mlorencz sounds like an interesting opportunity for which you are in search. I would think you could do some good networking here to, hopefully, fill your need. You may want to take a look in on the Professional Chefs forum to pick some brains and offer your skill set. Best of luck!
Welcome, Huma! Being a vendor sounds like you can share some great insight! Glad you came out of trolling mode. Welcome aboard!
