    For the last six years I've been mentoring a young architect (we were at lunch when he received notice of his first job!), and in the course of our conversations the topic of finances has come up. I can share with him my experiences, but I don't have any recommendations on what he might read or web sites he might visit. I was lucky enough to go into business with someone who already had 27 years of management under their belt. They were great to learn from, but it’s put me in a tough spot in trying to recommend resources.

    Can anyone recommend some good resources they've used that I can refer to him?
