Once I'm to the point where I am fully booked by myself, I plan to take on one helper for a couple of days a week. I think you will have trouble finding people to help until you have at least 16 hours a week for them. Even then, your choice of employees will be limited. So, you want to be overworked by yourself, before you hire someone else to help. Then, you want to use all of the free time you net, to get more customers.

I'm not really basing it on income. I know what I need to break even. I don't want to dip below that if I can avoid it. If I'm FULLY booked and take on an employee for two days a week, I'll still be a little above my break-even point.
