After a while of going it alone, it may seem right to hire or partner. Some times it takes people a while to understand when and how to leverage hiring other people to do things that you can do yourself. You’d be able to do it all – if time were not an ever-present variable. There’s a limit to doing it yourself.
What was the tipping point for you? And how did you address the need? (through sources like elance? did you partner?)
