Expanding question?

Hi all!

We're currently only doing residential cleaning and have been doing so for the past 8 years. So far I only have two people clean for me (relatives). We're super busy. Its to the point where the calendar is full and they're working 50+ hrs per week.

I hate to start to refuse potential customers. I do need to start to think and plan of expanding. Its just super hard.

For the past 8 years I've always had the two of them. Have great reputation in the industry. I don't have any other friends or family members who I can trust like the two of them now.

Any suggestions where to start?

I am even thinking of expanding to commercial.

Have any of you been in my shoes? What have you done? How have you expanded?
I guess my biggest worry is hiring the right employees.

And I do have to figure out the whole thing of incorporating vs not, general liability ins, workers comp, employment taxes, etc.

Sorry I have so many questions....

I would hire another employee to help you handle your current business and new costumers. It would be a shame not to go for it. I know that finding the right people is extremely hard but you need to look for someone reliable and willing to work and lern and train them. Good luck!
