Thought this might be of interest to some.

The Art of Manliness has a series "So you want my Job" and this month they talked to a restaurant owner.

http://artofmanliness.com/2012/07/19/so-you-want-my-job-restaurant-owner/

Some honest talk about the hours and work needed to start a place.

The best advice:
"My suggestion is to work in the business for a long time and try to learn every job. It will give you a different perspective, knowing what challenges face each of your employees. This is an industry where experience trumps education (and that’s an understatement). At various times in one night, I’ll be seating customers, pouring drinks, running food, busing tables, washing dishes, etc. It makes a difference to my staff and customers that I’m willing and able to jump in and help do any job."

Thanks for the link, I hope I can find a few minutes before September to take time to read it.
