I am soon starting a job for a small business that forms LLCs. What do I need to know?

I have been hired by a small business as an administrative assistant. By "small business" I mean beside the owner, there is a secretary and a bookkeeper who comes in once a month. So, this isn't just going to be making copies and brewing coffee; I am expected to become an integral part of the business. Basically, shit just got real.
I have no experience in the financial sector, having previously been a boutique manager and spending the last three years as a records clerk at a non-profit. The owner knows full well that I'm walking into this blind and has no problem with the fact. Training for the job was implied, but I want to know what the hell I'm doing at a level which he will probably not have the time to educate me.
Now I sorta-kinda keep up on financial news -- whatever comes up on MeFi, NPR and the New Yorker -- but "glosses of current events" is the extent of my knowledge base. What are some resources (books, blogs, TED talks) geared for the intelligent-but-utter-newbie that I should start checking out?
