Small Time Operator: How to Start Your Own Business, Keep Your Books, Pay Your Taxes, and Stay Out of Trouble (Bernard Kamoroff CPA)
I consider this book to be my Bible when it comes to creating and running a small business. I've read through it multiple times at different phases in my life and each time I learn something new and worthwhile. It is my go-to reference tool when I have questions about financials, taxes, legalities, hiring/firing, and everything in between. I highly recommend this for anyone who is considering starting their own small business, or anyone who wants to make sure their existing small business is on the up and up. Highly recommend!
