When is the right point to hire staff?

As part of my planning for starting up a practice, I was wondering at which point it would be sensible to look into hiring staff? What are the signs? Is there a magic number of clients or revenue or is it something else? Should the first hire be a PA or a book-keeper? All advice is, as ever, gratefully received.
