Are there any recommended books or courses that I could take to improve myself in terms of the business side of catering. While I am able to put out orders, I find that I need to increase the amount of orders for my business. There are many forms of advertising available to me but I don't have a big budget and whatever I choose to do must be as on target as possible. I am not sure where to turn in terms of marketing, accounting and general financial planning for a small business. I usually work alone but I am considering getting maybe 2 more people to work with me so that I can do small weddings and other functions. The way I figure it I need to be organized in all aspects if I want this to work and it is not enough for me to be able to cook alone. Especially if I want my business to grow to the point of giving me an income comparable to a normal 8-4 job. My vision for my business is to get it to a point of stability in terms of orders and income. Can anyone help me answer this, any and all advice would be appreciated! I have been turning this around in my mind for months now. Thanks in advance.
