This is my 7th season in business, running part-time the first 4 seasons and then turning it to a full time thing. I have noticed that the past 2 years I have seemed to gross around the same amount and this year I appear to be on track to be close to the same amount. I am always working my ass off, but never seem to get caught up and always feel like I am making clients wait longer than they should to get work finished. I also pass on alot of new work, as I just do not have time to take it on. I have often thought of hiring 1 person to make things easier on myself, but to be honest I am afraid of making that step. I am a control freak and letting go of the reigns a little scares the life out of me, but I am getting the feeling that I have hit the proverbial wall as a solo and need to make a move in order to start making better money and grow my business. I am also afraid of all the added costs and responsibilities that come with having employees and fear that once I have them I will not be able to keep them busy all the time. Guys, I am really starting to feel burnt out and very stressed about not getting work done it a timely manner. I hate feeling like I am letting customers down, though they never complain, I am not meeting my goals I have set for them. I could really use some good sound advise right now as I feel like things are starting to get a little out of control. Thanks in advance fellas.
