If you are not making enough money your employees are not working efficient enough, fast enough, paying them too much, not charging your customers enough, any combination or all of them.
When you get older you will find it hard to keep the same pace. By the time you hit 62 you will need to have your retirement needs met. Whether to cut back hours, have a helper.
Or send out a two man crew and you just handle the management and non field work so they are more productive.
Or make enough money before you hit 62.
Everyone is different, one of my competors is 60, he can work circles around anyone that I know. My goal is too slow down a little in a couple of years, the only way Ill hire someone is if Im unable to move around.
