1. When you have to turn down work.
If you have to turn down work because you can’t fit another project into your schedule, it’s a good indicator that your business is ready for help.
If you’re growth is being inhibited by the hours in a day that you can work, then it’s time to start thinking about another employee so you can retain all available revenue.
Of course business owners want to earn more money, but some do not want the added work or complications that come with hiring someone new. Then the question becomes: can you afford not to hire someone to assist in growing your business?
