I am at the point where my landscaping business needs at least one employee. I have been using friends and family to the point where they wonder when I am going to hire someone. The problem is, when I hire an employee I will have to be much more serious with my business. Currently I take off when I want, work when I want and really follow no real schedule. I think hiring an employee might make it to where I have to follow a schedule. Did anyone else have this issue before they hired an employee. Did it make your life easier to have a set schedule or do you miss the freedom to take off and do what ever you want, whenever you want.
