How to get the business go around

When you are trying to do something new, it is pretty hard to 1) Have enough cashflow to pay salaries and 2) Know exactly what kind of person you need, for exactly what kind of work. I imagine every business starts in a different way, but these are the things that I think are important.

I have been involved in the restaurant and catering industry for a long time, as both a chef, and owning my own restaurants.

Contrary to what a lot of people think, owning a restaurant is not a guaranteed way to make a stack of money and retire early. It is long hours, very competitive, low margins, and often can be quite short-term oriented. “We need the sun to shine this month” etc etc.
