You can't start to think about employees until you get to where you need them. Two hundred hives isn't that point. Fivehundred you will feel you need an employee, one. But you will need to have 500 more to pay for him. And you will have to be fortunate enough to find the right person who will work as hard as you do when you want him to for as little as you can afford to pay him.
