  1. HI Gaby. Loved listening to this podcast. It's crazy that I just discovered you! Let me just say WOW! Long story short I have always dreamed of doing exactly what you are doing with your food career. The last few years have been a challenge while losing my spouse to cancer and raising two children so my dreams were put on hold. Now I have been furloughed as of this Friday!!! LOL! I am thinking this is the time. My kids are older and I have some time on my hands and some savings. Now time for getting to the point. LOL! Where do you suggest that I begin. I am organizing my recipes and thinking of creating a blog or a you tube cooking show, and considering live cooking on facebook. Any suggestions? Honestly I MUST make a career change for my sanity and to finally do something that makes me happy. I am potentially looking to become a private chef as well for future income. So another question....what is the difference between a personal chef and a private chef? Unless it's 80 degrees and sunny this weekend I see myself diving into your blog and watching your Instagram. I would appreciate any advise and if you have a chance please take a look at my Instagram @suzannebuonoo to see some of my food pics. I have just started so more to come but in my group of friends I am the go to for a things food. I feel like I could go on and on asking you questions but I'll leave this for now. I know in my gut I can do this!

  2. Gaby - I just want you to know that you are Fabulous. So glad that I come across your Instagram page.
