Welcome ChefConnie! Good luck with your new endeavor. I expect you'll be a regular in the Professional Chefs and, perhaps, the Catering Forums to knock around some ideas. This community is an excellent place to do that, risk-free. You'll also make connections with people all over the world so the potential is there for ideas for recipes and techniques galore.
I notice you mentioned having experience as an entrepreneur. Many people who want to start a catering, baking or other food business don't think of it as a business. Rather, they focus on recipes and how delicious their products are. Of course that's very important, but hey- it's a business after all! I'm a home cook and not in a culinary career, but this principle applies in a lot of other fields too. I thought of going independent in my own field but balked because of not wanting to run a small business myself. It's not my forte. You're fortunate to have chops in both areas, so you have a big advantage there as I'm sure you know.
Please take some time to explore the whole site: cooking articles, cookbook and equipment reviews, photo galleries, and much more. The discussion forums are wonderful, but we're more than that alone. We hope to benefit from your participation here and hope you'll visit as often as you are able.
