That is a good point. In my experience in contracting, it has been increasingly difficult to hire employees. The IRS is worse than they have ever been.

Tensor - That's a pretty nice success story for this economy. What line of work are you in?

We do marketing (mostly digital) for small and medium businesses. We also do web design, but we don't really make money off of that. That is pretty much just a foot in the door to sign clients up for on-going marketing services.

Most of our clients are home services contractors like HVAC, plumbing, home builders, remodelers, architects, fire protection, water/fire damage restoration, etc.

We also have a few real estate companies.

We have B2B services like information technology and a historical stock ticker data broker.

A few trade organizations.

Some lawyers.

A major hospital system.

And some other stuff I'm surely forgetting.

Most of our clients pay us $1,500-$4,000/month. We like to pride ourselves on helping small businesses grow. We've had several clients double in size since being with us.

It's been a great company to work for so far. I was employee #13 or 14 I believe and we have about 30 now. Mostly in Maryland, but we're in the process of hiring more in Charlotte.

That's a great market to be in if you can keep customers happy. My stepmom ran a marketing agency for years and was heavy in web, radio, and tv marketing. Very very lucrative if you have a good staff and the right design people.
