These are the things I'm interested in knowing. Depending on who you compare me to, I have a pretty advanced espresso knowledge. I'm not so worried about more barista training, because that's a constant learning process. I am looking for a better way to educate myself on business basics. I may not always be able to spend a lot of time at a shop to learn management practices, so I'm looking for something that can help me no matter where I go and how much time I spend there. Obviously, finding a good place to work and staying there to learn are my first priorities, but what else can I do? What are good resources for understanding property issues, taxes, hiring, etc.?
