I wanted to know, how compatible is FCP7 with Yosemite? FCP7 is the mainstay of my business and wanted to know if I should upgrade.

Final Cut Pro 7 does work on OS X Yosemite.
Check out ProVideoCoalition's post that detailing the installation of FCP7 on OS X 10.10; Installing and editing with Final Cut Pro 7 on a new Macbook Pro with Yosemite
Overall the edit went very well. Not a crash, not a peep from Final Cut Pro 7.0.3.
Oh, and that was running Yosemite version 10.10 so we know Final Cut Pro Classic is still working on Apple’s latest operating system.
Multiple users on Apple Support Communities have said the same;
Does anyone know if Final Cut Pro 7 work in the new Yosemite upgrade?

It does on my system...
RoaringApps might be the place to look.

Not enough reports to be truly certain as yet, I'd say.
I'd wait for at least 10.10.1 before moving mission-critical machines to it. I'm in pro-audio & I'm letting others iron out all the bugs before I make the leap.
