I am trying as hard as possible to break through the barrier of self-employment into business ownership on a daily basis. Too many people around here will work their guts out for next to nothing for me to do it much longer. It all depends on your long term goals and more importantly your marketplace.
There has been much discussion on how to "enlarge" your company whilst making it more profitable also the "break even" point to come off the road. For myself last year we grew to myself and 3 men, any more and I would have had to come off the road to "manage" it and have to search for more work to keep them and myself.
I had all the comments that it's not the same as when you do it etc. For the life of me I cound not tell the difference between me and the crew (which is good),
