Seeking resources for small business newbies
May 27, 2016 1:56 PM   Subscribe

We are in the early stages of considering a new business - exciting! While we're very much at the "tossing around an idea" phase, we'd like to have as much information and advice as possible. And so I come to you, Ask MeFi, seeking your best recommendations for resources, knowledge, & discussion to help us turn ideas into a plan.

We're looking for resources for beginners who are interesting in starting a small business - in particular, starting up a food truck. General resources for small business beginners and specific resources for food truck entrepreneurs would both be welcome. Anything current & reliable is welcome -- whether it's a book, blogs, forums, or something else -- whatever might be instructive. Thanks!

For any food related businesses, Anthony Bourdain's book Kitchen Confidential is a requisite read.

Every time I hear a hopeful entrepreneur in the food industry, I think of the Slate article Bitter Brew. The quote from Kitchen Confidential that you need to read is right there!
