There it is in a nutshell. You have reached a decision point, and it's not an easy one. If you want to continue growing, with the attendant pressures, you are either going to have to put away the toolbag or hire (and trust) someone to do the dirty work for you.

If you're young and full of energy, you can do it all for a while. But at some point, those bags get pretty heavy. Plan for the future.

You need good weather? That's why my game sucks!
I love what I do and I'm very good at it!
