I have 3 full days of maintenance landscaping work per week (+extra jobs) running the operations by myself. I hire workers for any extra work. Recently I got stomach flu and I was physically not able to function (fever/toilet etc.) I was behind 2 days on my scheduled work TUE/WED/THUR. I realized that yea sometimes accidents/sickness happens and my business is me being able to physically do it. Im wondering how do you guys deal with being sick or not able to work if you are still starting out and not have a crew to do the job? Should I hire someone now for 2 times a week that will work with me and loose some of my profits to at least have someone back up if I get sick? Let me know what you think or if you went through with something like that, it would be appreciated. Thank you.
