Hi all, I was wondering if any of you shop owners have used professional consultants to help start your business? If so, what was your experience - good and/or bad? I am thinking abut hiring a local coffee roaster to help me start my shop and he is not pushing any equipment, just sells beans, which I am pretty sure aren't a requirement for using his services. (though I like his product) I do not feel confident jumping into this alone; I have no experience in this business and I am a little intimidated by the red tape required to just get off the ground. Any advice about who to hire or not to hire? I have heard negative things about some of the "nationally known" consultants.
