When is Enough Truly Enough?

This week has proven to be a challenge to me with all the additional work brought in by my salesperson. I was completely overwhelmed at first wondering how I was gonna get everything accomplished on time and under budget without letting any of my existing clients down in the process. Somehow I have gotten things back to manageable even with all the added work. This afternoon, I received a call from the same salesperson that put all this together only to hear that she is working on not one but two more huge deals for me. As the work flows like water, Niagra Falls, to be more precise, I find myself wondering "when is enough truly enough?"

I'm not sure of the answer to that question as of yet but for now, I built this monster and I intend to ride it until either it or I break.Sit back, strap yourselves in, this is gonna be a heck of a ride!

I too am an entrepreneur who has to ride the waves of new and existing business... Enjoy it while you have it... prioritize your projects... and let clients know that they are a priority and when they can expect work from you... even if it means they have to wait a bit... it will make you appear very popular (true) and valuable and they will be happy to have their job in your schedule.
You might also subcontract work to someone you trust...
it's a point in your business where you can either grow or maintain at a very fast pace. Enjoy.

This is a good problem to have.

The alternative is much worse.
