It sounds to me like you're working mainly IN your business instead of ON your business. You're always behind on task, and lack time to do what you really love, web development and more of that! You don;t know whether you should hire, because you don't see time to train that person, and the risk seems high.
Many business owners are stuck here...
Well, that's what most of my clients told me before they worked with me.
Does that sound in any way familiar to you?
To grow, you need to move to working ON your business 80% of the time. To grow you need to start developing an organization, step by step.
It starts by freeing yourself up from tasks that drain time, energy, and money from you as a resource, and moving that into processes and a structured workflow. Then setting a strong and articulate direction for the company, broken down into OKRs is the next step I'd focus on. Thirdly, build a hiring plan around that, and start to grow step by step.
Clients I've helped typically say that finally, they have time to grow their business, thanks to a shortened learning curve that saved them time and money to get to a new level.
If that's something that matches your situation, feel free to ask me more questions.
Hi! My clients have successfully hired VA's through Linkedin by submitting a 3 steps hiring process with a pre-qualification and assessment build in.
Also, when people continue to leave your company, I usually look into how clear is the direction of the company, is there a concise mission and vision statement, clear goals, and a goal setting framework that aligns everyone in one direction.
Also a common thing I see that make people leave is the absence of clear and articulate company values that are used during the hiring process.
Confidentiality is all about setting up the right NDA/work contract structure.
These points will help! Good luck
