I am not sure what type of business you have established, but if you are relying on sub-contractors to do all the work for you then you are probably on a road to misery.
I had a business with sub-contractors but found that they were ripping me off, so I stopped using them and did the installations myself Iwood heaters and air conditioners). I am not trained to do this work, but were able to observe what my sub-contractors were doing, so picked up many tips.
My wife ran the showroom whilst I was installing, and I did the quotes in the evenings. This resulted in a decline is sales, but profits increased (not having to pay sub-contractors) i.e. less work and more profits is far better that high sales and more heartache.
Sounds like you need a mentor to help you through the development phase.
