It depends on what services you need to set up. Basic setup is not that hard if you follow the documentation, but troubleshooting problems with OS X Server can be a bear.

I agree with Linc. There are many things to bear in mind alongside your personal skill-set....
What is the server going to be used for, now? and in a year or two...?
Who will have access to the services? Is this a personal server or one for your office?
Will it need to integrate with other services/systems?
As Linc says - an out of the box server set-up can be straitforward - BUT, if you want to start running specialist services you'll need to know how to set them up and manage them properly.

While not a "go for it", I ultimately find there aren't a lot of people that understand Server. If you have the time and resources to do some learning, you have a feel for the underlying technologies then there's no reason to not undertake at least the learning exercise. If anything you'll at least gain the knowledge in knowing the person you call in knows what they're doing.
Server is very different animal to the client version.
