Motivation for the pros
This question is more for the professionals in this forum (those makin $$).
I was just curious... what was it that made you decide to do this for a living, or as a side business? Was it suggested by friends/family? Did you see others makin $$, and said "I could do that too"?
What put the "smoke in your lungs, and the sauce in your viens"? Was it a cassual backyard hobby that you took forward?
I KNOW that this is not an easy business (food services in general), so, what made you decide to abuse yourselves in this way. I will share my answers with you shortly (at least the FS side).
Also, do yall do competitions? If you do, do you do it for the sport or as an advertising tool?
