There are many schools of thought about hiring assistants and RE investing in general. If I were you I would sit down and write out what you want and where you want to be in five years, four years, three years, two years, and next year.
Then I would develop a plan that follows that time line with your current investment amount. Hire an assistant or do not hire one, either way do what makes you feel comfortable and follows your goals.
I hope this helps
