Starting out, my business grew slowly. I was able to manage the incoming and outgoing calls, and the workload on my own. As the months went by, I was beginning to run myself thin. That was when I began looking into my options, of which, I had two: hire an assistant, or hire an answering service. After weighing the pros and cons and the cost effectiveness of both options, I decided to hire an answering service. A year later, my business continues to grow and I do not have to concern myself with missing calls from important or new clients.
