Most businesses hire in January and February of each year.  Also, this is when most job seekers are out looking for a job.  Business funding will help you increase your personnel in numerous ways.
Don’t be afraid to hire because human capital is a key element to grow your business. Consider how you can delegate some of the activities which you are doing every day and how they would impact your business.  Also, prepare a recruiting and proper training to bring in more personnel to your company.  Also, you need to consider that sometimes it may take two to four months to see an impact from new personnel in your business.  Those two to four months are period of adaptation and learning curve for most people who start a new job.  Rather than taking out money from your reserves during this time consider business funding to carry your business during those months.  Also, make sure you can measure how increasing employees will impact your top line or your revenues.  Revenues are not always measured by earnings.  You need to measure delegation, additional time, efficiency, productivity output and other things that impact your business to become better and faster in the long run.
