Definetely do some business courses, many a good business idea has failed just because the person didn't have business knowledge to go along with their skills. I thought of the coffee part because there is a guy at the farmers market that got into that. He converted a gas grill into a roaster to roast his own coffee beans. He has gotten real good at it and it is excellent coffee. Now he has paired with a guy that does welding and they have perfected the design of the roaster and selling them as they build them. It is too expensive and makes too much coffee for home use, and too small for large coffee shops, but perfect for small shops that are paired with something else and the coffee is on the side.
This kind of pairing has kept a lot of places around her afloat and eases the burden of owning your own business and being responsible for everything. Of course, you have to choose your partners carefully, just ask Abe Lincoln! LOL.

Aha yea! Well it'll be tough to find somebody who likes doing cooking and baking like i do. The only other people I know have kids my age that dont like it, and they are close to retiring. We'll see where time goes.
