But you can get into doing some parties for friends and build a small income from word of mouth and that is how you start while keeping your day job. Then in 2-3 years you'll be able to save enough to get into the next step where you do HD kitchen, etc. Everybody has to start somewhere. Go for it just keep it to friends for now. I know lots of folks doing it.

Im in a similar situation at the moment. I have decided to use most of my set up money making my business legal and fully registered. I rent kitchen space in the evenings from a local cafe, and i rent smokers, ovens and burners as i get bookings. Its giving me a lot of experience working with different rigs at different sized events.
Good luck m8
