I have been asked so many times how I made the leap and hired help for my growing business. Many of the people in my network are small business owners in a creative industry, and so are mostly working by themselves because they are the talent and so this is a big struggle for us. How do you know you can sustain that extra cost? For so many small business owners, their first hire is someone who will be intimately connected with the ins and outs of their business. How can you trust someone?
