I am the sole proprietor of a small business that does various web, graphic, and other electronic media design. So far, I have been able to manage everything myself, but looking toward the future I'm afraid that I'll have too many clients simultaneously, or several big jobs at the same time. If I ever find myself in that situation, I think I'm lucky to be situated in-between several universities where I could even ask professors for recommendations. I'd almost like to be able to find a good student and say "I'll give you $200 to help me for the week." Unfortunately, I'm afraid the IRS wouldn't look too fondly on that. I would like to retain control of the content that I am providing for clients, and I would also like to maintain that it came from my business. While I will gladly endorse supporting local students, I don't want to say "Your request was turned over to a local student, this is what they did"--I want it to be as if an employee of mine did it. The problem is--at this point--I don't have a substantial need for an actual, permanent employee. I may need them 3-10 weeks in a year. While I'd like to be optimistic about business growth, I also need to be realistic. What are my options?
