Home Business

I know this is off topic-- somewhat.

I'm looking for a forum that is geared to growing a home based business. I provide personal chef services, catering and baked goods from my home. (In ohio, I'm allowed to do the baking as long as my home capacity doesn't exceed 1000 loaves per hour. Catering is an extension of personal chef services where i do the prep for a party on site.)
eventually, i'd like to be able to afford to have a real kitchen/office from which i can work-- but i need to get sales up to about $50,000 to afford the additional overhead.

I really need to start to interact with other people that work from home in some nature of creative endeavor.
and was hoping to get directed to a forum that wopuld help with my needs.

Thanks

diggerb
