Solo guy, but eventually I’d like to cut back on my hours and be able to take a vacation with my family from time to time, etc. Problem is, I have no idea how to grow my business. Do you take on the customers and work yourself to death until you can find the right employees to help? Or do you you hire the employees and take a major pay cut for a while, paying them until you get enough new customers to cover their salary and then some? I had a bad experience a few years back, adding a big account, hiring someone who quit a month into the season and being stuck with too much work for one person and being burnt out, stressed out, and not really making more money due to not having enough time and energy to stay caught up with all the lawns. After that I swore off employees and have been solo since. But, eventually I’d like to have a little more freedom.
