Jesse, I think you need to be more specific. What do you mean by legit? I know what legit means, but what's not legit about your business? What sort of advice are you looking for? What do you feel isn't going well? What is going well? What exactly do you do? We just need more info to help you.
There are a couple of resources here in Fort Worth for people that want to start, or have just started a business. The city sponsers the Fort Worth Business Assistance Center: http://www.fwbac.com. They are located at the corner of Rosedale and I-35W in the old restored school building. They have a wide variety of workshops on all areas of starting and running a business. They specialize in getting businesses "legit". Some of their workshops are in cooperation with Tarrant County College and cover business planning, financing Quickbooks and marketing.
Separately, Tarrant County College has some non-credit classes on Small Business Management as well. Basically everything I know about reading and understanding financial statements I learned years ago in one of their courses. Just go to www.tccd.edu and click on non-credit courses.

Hello, My name is Jesse Garces, located in Fort Worth, Texas. My brother and I recently started our own "small" business in food service. My problem is that I came to this idea blind folded. I have no previous experience in business running nor have I ever worked in a food chain environment. Basically, our business start up came out of a blank shot but we are doing pretty good I would say. Not nearly as close to were I want to be but with my inexperience, I think I'm managing well. Can anyone give me some pointer tips on what I need to do to make my business legit?
Thanks a million!
