Nothing wrong with being a one man show, only drawback is you may be working longer hours with little sleep. I have had trainees through various government schemes, but these never work out, so not always on my own. i did have 1 girl that was a great help, i even gave her control on a ecommerce site and was on the verge of offering her a full time job as she as great with clients, until i had to go to a meeting one day and while at the meeting their was a client call up full of anger and abuse because his site was down. when i got back the girl was no where to be seen. when i called her she went home in tears as she was verbally abused by this client. i tried to persuade her to come back and even offered her a job, but she would not consider this. ( dont blame her as a 17 yr old does not have to stand for such abuse). i found out the fault with the clients site was his own doing. neither to say that person is no longer one of my clients.
i would never consider revenue sharing with the resellers as why should i share my profits with resellers.
