“Being a solo business owner can be liberating as you are doing things your way and that’s probably one of the things you wanted when you started out. But if you are at the point where you are working long hours just to get things done and it’s causing you stress, you’re losing sleep AND it’s affecting your personal or family time then you should really consider a helping hand.” -Adam Chatterley-
