We just hired our first full time employee who's going to start Sept 14th!
It's been almost two years since starting SSR and we finally have enough cash flow coming in, and enough work that we are sure will be ROI positive, to justify hiring someone.
I think we kind of lucked out, they are an IVY league graduate who's been trying to be a professional runner the last four years (they were one of the first 500 Americans to run a sub 4 minute mile!).
They are just now starting their professional career and we scooped them up :)
