Yep,,, thats the only way I know how to do it. But back to OP,,, Getting the best training you can goes hand in hand with the principles that have been outlined. If I go to a business and the service & knowlege of the product sucks or sounds like BS, I probobly won't return. If a business like you described is your plan, I don't think I'd learn a little bit from this 'smith and some from that book, I'd get some 'real' training. But on the other hand, you'll be too busy running the business to do much 'smithing, there are only 24 hours in a day.
"Shoots real good!": definition; it didn't blow-up in my face. Not everything can be fixed on an internet forum!
