It depends on what kind of client you are looking for Kendall. Are you looking to be hired as a full-time chef for a family or are you looking for high-end party work? Or?

Either way you need to market to the women. Whether they be the execs or the wives of execs they are who makes the decisions about food.

Got a Junior League where you are? Find out who the members are and send out something clever to each of them. High-end golf courses? Buzz through when you know there is a function and hand stuff out to people. Hospital Auxiliary meetings? Exclusive tennis clubs or health clubs? High-end trendy grocery stores? Get your stuff where they will find it.

Limo services can be a good resource for business too. Offer a small spiff for referrals. If you are really high-end go to where the corporate jets hanger and get your cards in the hands of a supervisor.

Think outside the box. Just going to businesses is not going to get you the business. Your samples and info will not get in the right hands unless you have pretty much all-women companies you go to. Good intentions usually get pretty much stopped by whomever is at the reception area.
