I taught myself to code and one thing lead to another, and now I have an enterprise SaaS product that’s gotten more traction that I imagined. I have managed to get this far with myself as solo dev. How do I scale?

I taught myself to code and one thing lead to another, and now I have an enterprise SaaS product that's gotten more traction that I imagined. I have managed to get this far with myself as solo dev. How do I scale?

I've never seen the workings of a functional dev team.

I initially hired some developers in the Phillipines to help me with the MVP of our product, but found that I spent more time writing technical docs and reviewing pull requests than I was coding myself. This ultimately lead to lower quality and quantity of code.

I'm currently working through a major re-architecture and could use some help, but it seems that the time spent getting help in would be the same as me doing it myself?

Surely I'm missing something here, can anyone point me in the right direction?
