My questions seem to be amazingly clueless to me, but that's where my knowledge is at this point. Gotta start somewhere!

And that somewhere is your very own accountant. As a knuckle-dragging IRS collection thug I saw countless small businesses fail. Practically to the owner, they hadn't a clue about the financial side of the business. All they knew was that they were working 60 hours a week and losing money. Please, please, please spend some money up front on advice.

On the unpaid advice front, here's a freebie from me. I don't know what kind of business this is, but if you try to manage it remotely and it's at all possible, your employees will steal you blind.
