Perhaps a few biz management courses at your local community college would suffice?

Our local community college has a department called the Small Business Development Center that offers classes, workshops, seminars, etc for current and future small business owners.

I recently took an evening course from them called "Shoebox Bookkeeping" which is a basically a short class on rudimentary, very basic pen & paper bookkeeping. The instructor is a local CPA and it was a great class.

They also offer a more in-depth series of classes on Quickbooks, and then a lot of more specialized stuff on a case-by-case basis. I plan on taking more classes in the future. They've also got stuff on website development, social media, etc.

I'd bet you have similar resources up there.

Thanks... im gonna look into that... I took a quickbooks class and accounting refresher when I first started out. I personally think I need a secratary to handle some stuff...but I need to see whats a good next step, how to market effectively, and some other stuff. Basically I need some tutoring.
