Everybody wants to leave break-fix behind, and become an MSP
The best clients to have are business clients on a contract. You solve their IT problems every month (so they can work), and they pay you every month (so you can eat).
Once you have a handful of good business clients on a contract you won’t be spending all of your time chasing new work, and can start to concentrate on business growth.
There are some caveats however…
When a business outsources their IT to you, they are trusting that you will be available when they need you, and be able to provide the services they need.
Feeling unwell or have sick family member?
Want to go on holiday?
Want to sleep in on a Sunday morning?
Many businesses won’t even engage a one person MSP as the risk to their business is to great if something was to happen to you.
Hiring staff is a challenge all of its own . You need enough work to keep them busy so that they pay for themselves, so you either need to do two peoples worth of work while you get to this point, or you don’t pay your self anything while you double your client base.
And the worst caveat of all? What happens if your business client suffers an IT incident that is beyond your knowledge and skill level?
Going it alone is very hard.
