  1. Hello, Myra!
    Looking to help my husband open a small business in food industry. He has over 11 yrs experience in the industry. Seems it is high time he works for himself. Since his English is not the best, thought I should initiate the process. Could you suggest or recommend seminars or first steps. He has worked for many food businesses and has an idea. However, I think he needs to know details and paperwork.
    Any suggestions or help would be appreciated!
