For some reason or another a new business owner usually has a hard time looking at the whole picture. Instead of seeing the growth of the business they are so caught up on dealing with daily tasks that are better off delegated to others. Once you sit down and actually compare the costs of you filling in for an assistant versus the cost of outsourcing tasks, you'll see why it makes sense to ask for reinforcements. If you are wearing too many hats in order to run your business, I'm sorry to say but you are doing it wrong. Your business will only grow so much and you will wear yourself out, who will fill in for you when you are out ill or can't fill in all the hats for some reason? What will happen to your business?
