Have been running a business for a couple of years now but been managing most of the areas of the business myself - web development and marketing - while I have staff who take care of customer service. The problem now is that I really want to start a few more web services but then that would mean having to find someone to take care of my current role + I'd ideally want people as well who can take my new ideas forward while I can just focus on strategising for the future.
So now am confused as to who do I hire and whether I should look at hiring senior pros first like perhaps a Project Manager to take care of web development and have him responsible for scaling up the team, including hiring the right people, and a Marketing Manager who'll take care of everything again along with hiring and building a team. I wish things could be simultaneous and I got everyone I wanted at the same time but I know from experience that getting the right people takes time, so confused on whether to focus on seniors first or to get some juniors, train them on current roles and then hire someone senior to take things forward. But I'd then be spending a lot of my time just managing the juniors again till I got someone suitable. And if I hired senior people, not sure if they'd get down to doing all the daily work themselves till they find suitable staff on board.
How do I scale up, just not able to get my thought process right on this one!
