I'm wondering how many projects of varying sizes do some of you feel
one person can work on and do an adequate job, not necessarily
prize-winning. Let's assume that you will work 40 - 50 hours a week.

A sampling of the types of jobs I'm referring to might be a 4-page
newsletter to be edited and formatted; documentation of a complex
system which might produce 75 pages or more; and one that will produce
about 100 pages or so. Keep in mind that you will do the whole nine
yards on the documentation projects, starting from scratch -- create
the plan, content specifications, implementation, screen captures and
modifications, formatting, usability testing, and final production.

How many of these kinds of projects would you say could be handled by
one person at one time?

Thanks for your input.
