At what MRR does it make sense for a solo entrepreneur to hire sales dev help?

See title.


The biggest struggle I've had since going my own way is dealing with all the processes and systems of my company.


That has eaten into my ability to prospect and outbound, thereby limiting my time spent doing my highest ROI activities in marketing and selling.


If I'm not yet at 10k monthly but knowing that I probably could hit that pretty easily with a part time rep, should I just bite the bullet or keep at current rate and amass more capital?

You could try to hire someone on a contract basis. That way if it doesn't work you don't have to renew the contract
