Alright, I have 65 accounts as of right now. I put an ad in the yellow pages that should bring in lots of leads. I currently have my secretarial duties split between my grandma and mom. I had them doing everything except for answering the phone. I will not be able to answer the phone or make phone calls, I will be way too busy for that. I don't think I want my g.ma or mom to continue to be my secretaries...it's the whole family working for family thing! I plan to hire someone. I put an ad on an online classifieds forum, I have been getting lots of calls. The job will not be available until the end of march, and also, I have no clue if I will need them at all. My yellow pages ad is fairly big, its orange, and it definately stands out over all others in the directory. So basically I am trying to get opinions on whether I should hire a secretary or not. The main thing I need them for is to answer the phone because I am horrible at getting back to people in a timely manner. Do any of you smaller companies have secretaries, or do you do it on your own?
