I will do the same thing. For someone that's OCD like me, finding a good employee is a nightmare. For the first time in over 10 years I will be working solo. I will downsize a little so that I can handle the workload, but I should actually make more profit. My wife is a beast at lawn care so she will help me when I need additional help.#1 goal is to survive. I highly doubt I’ll find a helper capable of meeting the expectations I have for them. My standards are probably too high for most “employees” and I’m ok with that. If they can’t show up on time, do what they’re paid to do, and be trustworthy, then I have no use for them. So, I’ll probably be solo the majority of the year and will have to be dialed in really well in order to achieve the balanced work and family life I want. It’s never easy but I’ve never shied away from a challenge either so it should be a fun ride!
