But you gotta get enough steady work that produces income to pay your sister. Payroll sucks (paying it that is). Quickbooks is not hard--once it's set up & you know how to use it.
Pay your husband, not so much. He keeps his day job & keeps the roof over your head right?
If 30% of her deal is walk-in you don't really wanna mess with that do yah? You could make it up with doing more cakes but you gotta weigh that out.
Doing all decorated work and parties is a different line to follow. Geez 30% walk-ins is a lot --that sounds pretty good but you gotta make the stuff and work the counter too.
I'm betting her figures are not gonna fly. It's the part where she says it was her intention to sell the bz after a few years? Really? Why? Who goes into business to sell out in a few years?
From what you've said, it sounds like another employee is needed to reduce the effects of potential burn out (owner's go it huh) So the bz has to be brisk enough to support another employee so then you'd have two.
