So true. Some people are great cake artist but just don't have the skills for running a successful business. Those people should either team with a good business partner or work for someone at a bakery.Some people can successfully do both.You need to determine which you are. You also need to honestly evaluate what is most important in your life right this minute and what can wait.
The absolute best advice is to make a business plan. It will help answer many of the questions you've asked. Check to see if you have a local SCORE office. They help small businesses. The advice we would offer (how many to hire, etc.) is determined by many factors. If your focus is a shop which sells a bunch of small items, you will need different support staff from one that primarily sells wedding cakes.

She starts tonight without knowing what she's getting paid? This could be disastours for your friendship. She may be expecting something different than what you have planned. Please remember that in addition to her hourly rate, you'll also be paying taxes!

I have the IX6520 The place you need to clean looks like A bit of pressure won't hurt. Clean until the qtip stays clean. The first time I did it, I went through about 100! Then, turn off the power to the printer. Reset the cartridge so it's nice and straight. Turn on the power. Hope it helps.
That sometimes happens to me when the connection points have a bit of ink on them. Use a qtip dipped in rubbing alcohol to gently clean the spot where the cartridge meets (on the printer not the cartridge). I bet @icingimages can describe this better than I.
