You can hire an assistant when the work load is becoming too much for you to handle alone and most importantly when you have the capital to pay them their wages.

An entrepreneur needs an assistant when he starts to get overwhelmed at work, and needs the help of others. But before that he also needs to make sure that he is able to pay the salaries of employees from existing business profits.

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?

The workload which you are going to be requiring to take care of is going to show you that you really need an assistant who is going to help you take care of it quickly.

I think the small businesses can't manage to pay the services of the personal assistant. Small businesses generates too low profits to pay for the operation costs and personal assistant.

The truth is that every entrepreneur is aware of their activity level, or how busy they are, so they can decide whether or not they need an assistant. Small businesses do not need to hire personal assistants but need help from their children and wives besides training their children's entrepreneurial spirit.

An entrepreneur should get an assistant when he feel the workload on him is much and won't have time for some other things, the assistant eases the workload by doing some things that would have helped save time.

If one has kids that are up to teenager level, they can make use of their kids to assist them in their business. It would even help to build the children's interests in the business for it to have a succession plan.

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

Business expansion is one of the clear indication that you need to hire more staff that are going to help you to successfully carry out the business activities.

I believe that an entrepreneur should get an assistant when he can no longer handle the pressure or when he could no longer handle things on his own. This is one of the main things that a person should consider.

A business person should not be struggling to meet up with orders when he or she can employ an assistant to help him or her. People even employ helps at home when it is overwhelming not to talk of a business.

Exactly, most business owners even when they are struggling to sort things out, they still would not want to hire an assistant, they would end up making certain mistakes.

There is no way you can be good at everything so the wise thing to do is to get a specialist in a area of your company where you can not handle

The idea is that they don't want to spend money. Paying another hand to them is a waste. As small as I am, I have assistants both at home and in my business. The purpose of entrepreneurship is to create jobs.

And at the long run, people that don't won't to employ an assistant may end up losing a lot of money which can even be money that what they should have used to employ someone

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.
The moment it is very obvious that you cannot be able to carry out your daily business activities all by yourself is when it is right for you to get an assistant to help you to do everything.

Small businesses don't necessarily need an assistant. If you can run it alone, then you will succeed. But if you have a full time offline job, you can hire someone to help you run your business.
