What area are you in? If you are in Portland, I know of an entire network of small business owners and folks dedicated to helping small businesses succeed. I work for a CPA who's passion is to help the local economy grow. She is not your typical buttoned down CPA - she wears birkenstocks to work, and has hair hanging down to her behind, however she is very well respected in our community for her skill, understanding and expertise. She works with business owners all over the country, and if you want a free consultation with her where you can talk about anything from advertising, setting up your business entity, how to set up Quickbooks to reflect the flow of your business, how to prepare for taxes, how to determine pricing, and how to hook up and network with a ton of excellent sources, then give me a call - I am her admin assistant - at 503 244 6905.
And if you want to get started in Portland, I know of just the person for you to meet - a caterer named Carrie Peacock who works with people on restricted diets, but is having trouble meeting the needs of her celiac clients. I could see that being a good way for you to form an alliance. She's a very intelligent person too, who prefers cooperation above competition. I even have a suggestion for a commercial space! In to diffrent parts of town!
So I am excited for you. Please let me know how this goes, I am very curious.
