If you got this far, with what you say you have why listen to anyone. Just keep doing what your doing.

Grow your business within your means. Don't jump too fast. Also talk with a good accountant.

I really have no idea what info you are looking for? What do you need help with. You seem to have gotten pretty far by yourself, and you have raised quite a broad question. So I'm not sure exactly what to help you with.

Whtaever your doing seems to be working. Only advice would be is to talk to a lawyer and get a ton of insurance. If u let stuff like taxes get away they will haunt u later on. Also look at ur earnings reports to make sure ur making enough profit.
