Entrepreneurs direct the entire affairs of businesses. By nature of their roles as business leaders, they might be too busy to meet up with their tasks. At a point, they would surely need an assistant.
At what point do you think an entrepreneur can genuinely employ a personal assistant without it being unnecessary expenses. Does an entrepreneur with a small business need a personal assistant at all?

To the best of my knowledge I think as an entrepreneur, you desperately need a helping hand if not hands for the business to grow. Entrepreneurs with small businesses cannot grow into a bigger one without an assistant, those who strive to employ a helping hand in any business always end up thankful in the end. Most big businesses started small and with the help of an assistant.

I believe that with more work comes more money, so as the business expands and the tasks for the entrepreneur becomes wider, the entrepreneur should be able to afford paying an assistant. When a business tasks of managing it is much for the entrepreneur, he or she must get an assistant.

I think as an entrepreneur would need a helping hand when the workload is becoming unbearable you don't have to kill yourself so you should employ more hands for the business

Some entrepreneurs are stingy and won't want to pay an assistant. I saw a guy that fills gas, does laundry and provides agency banking in the same shop. He has refused to hire an assistant and sometimes, he can't meet up with all the different customers available.

At the moment when it's very obvious that taking care of everything in your business is no longer easy which makes you leave some jobs unattended, then you need a new assistant.

An entrepreneur should get assistant when the business has overgrown to be managed by one person, if the influx of customers/clients are rapidly increasing on a daily basis, then it will be very wise for an entrepreneur to get assistance, but it must be within his or her budget, because you can employ people and don't pay them when due.

Entrepreneur needs to get a competent assistant when the business is getting bigger than what you can handle or you need a specialist in a particular area of your business

In some cases, the entrepreneur would do the work of production, marketing, accounting all alone. It is okay at the initial stage but it is not sustainable if the entrepreneur wants the business to grow

The purpose of establishing a business is to help reduce the unemployment rate in the country. A situation where an entrepreneur fails to employ anyone,, he is not helping the economy.

Even for a small business, an entrepreneur normally has an assistant to help him/her out on answering incoming calls, filing, and other office administrative duties so that s(he) may focus on more important work such as developing marketing and sales strategy, managing the finance of the company.

An entrepreneur can get an assistant when he deemed fit. Getting assistance depends on the circumstances in the business. If he feels he can't cope running the business alone, then he needs assistance.

When you know that your business needs you to be ever present, and you can't meet up, you should get an assistant. Getting an assistant helps you to free up yourself so that you can even balance work and life.

You need to get an assistant when your business is expanding and you can not meet up with the demand you are having. It is important to make sure you employ someone that is competent

Your assistant is an extension of the entrepreneur that you are. An assistant has to be very smart and quick thinking. He or she must be able to make decisions when you are not around.
