Growing Pains

Everyone spends a lot of time and energy explaining how to make sure you get enough business to survive as a freelancer or small business owner. Very rarely do we talk about the growing pains, when you have too much business coming in. Should you hire more people (which is a risk in itself), send work out to sub-contractors or simply say no?

Personally, I have no desire to say no to projects. I always strive to provide the best experiences for my customers, but going into university in just a few weeks, my time will be severely reduced. Employing someone is likely too risky of a project, which leaves sending work out to sub-contractors. Now I just have to find some.

Sure, it’s nice when your business goes well, but it creates new problems. Problems which are hardly ever talked about.
