When Should I Hire A Bookkeeper?

I am debating on whether or not I should hire a bookkeeper. I started my business 15 months ago and it is really starting to pick up. I have become so busy with day to day work that I can't seem to find time to do my bookkeeping. Is a bookkeeper worth the money? Also, what is the typical rate to expect.  Thank You!
