The more I run the numbers, the more I see for me to not work in the field, the business will loose money for a while. I have stayed embarrassingly small due to College classes and yet I have worked pretty hard at the business. But, running things solo like I do, 36,000 net looks like the ceiling for solo and this would be busting tail not slacking for school. What am I doing wrong? What I am trying to get at is this. When you reach that point that you finally make 40,000 solo( after all expenses) how do you transition to hiring a worker. How will they happy busting tail like you did for 1/2 the cash. Also, how do you find someone who will be careful with equipment like it was there own? Is it worth it? How did you feel when you handed them the keys and said go do it? It just seems so risky.
