If you want a good book to read, check out "The 4-Hour Work Week" by Tim Ferriss. It's one of the best books I've ever read for expanding your business without running yourself ragged. He has excellent tips for outsourcing workloads and/or daily tasks, streamlining operations and really just making your life more efficient. His whole view is, "why work every hour of the day if you never have time to enjoy your success?"
For me personally, when I started my business and I found that it was growing beyond what I was capable of handling on my own, I decided to take a different route than most. I could have hired employees. I could have expanded my home-based business to an office somewhere. Instead, I decided to turn it into a model that I could teach others who were interested in doing the same thing. This allows me to still run my own small business, but also earn profits by selling what I've learned. We've even started an affiliate program to bring in more interested future home-based business owners.
