Hiring help?

I know that today is supposed to be a business topic, but frankly this week has been so busy I just don't have the energy to think of something to write.  Don't get me wrong, I am happy that I am getting so many orders, it's a dream come true!  However, I have a whole sale account for my caps and gowns that needs to be done by Friday.  Well, yesterday I was sewing away and my serger broke.  I thought to myself...for real??  This has to happen this week?  Of course it does!  *sigh* 

So...I had to take it to get repaired.  I really hope that I can get it back today.  I have countless hours of sewing left before I will be done.  I need all the time I can get.  I am so grateful to my neighbor who offered to watch my girls tomorrow all day so that I can get the bulk of my sewing done.  What would I do without great friends!  Thank you!

I have a lot going on in regards to mommyhood as well.  I am watching neighborhood kids today and have a meetings tonight and tomorrow night.  I feel like I need to hire help, but I don't know where to start.  And I don't know if I will be as busy as  I am right now (with orders.)  I hope so though.  I like being busy.  And I want my business to grow!  (Which means more orders to fill :)  )

For the future, does anyone have any recommendations for great VA's (virtual assistants) that they just love?  Or what to look for when hiring a team or help?   I'm excited to start exploring these opportunities, but I would love some guidance!  So you experts out there...I'm looking for you!
