IMHO there are two ways to make good money. First is keeping it small where you and maybe a Helper Do all the work at health prices. That is where I am now. Less heads aches and you only have your self to worry about. You don't have to deal with all your Employee's problems.
The Second way is to have a crew and WORK ON YOUR BUSINESS NOT IN YOUR BUSINESS. Yes I have Been there and done that too. I saw My job was to do nothing in the business except delegate authority to Key Employees. I saw my Job as doing what ever to build the business and over see that everyone was doing their job.
The in between where you have a few Employees and work in your Business is not any where near as profitable.
Or Course every Size Business has advantages and Dis-advantages.
