If you have two businesses, some might count you very fortunate. However, splitting your time between two things that you enjoy can be a real challenge. I love both of my businesses: Virtual Work Team and Lons Designs. However, if you have two businesses and don’t love them both equally, which should you focus on. This question was asked of me during a business consultation. My answer is focus on the business you love the most! What you love doing, really won’t seem like work. You won’t feel drained when it’s done, you’ll feel energized. You can then do what you have to do when it comes to your other business. If you work on the business you like least, you’ll feel drained and less likely to have the mental energy to devote to doing what you love.
The euphoria from starting the day working on your passion can also serve as a catalyst for outsourcing as much as possible on the business you like least. I took my own advise today and it worked! Even though I love both of my businesses, designing gives me the most pleasure; so I took time to write a long overdue blog post and “Wow” I feel great! Writing this post came next and was even easier than normal. The words just flowed. If you have two businesses, why don’t you give it a try and see if my advice will work for you too.
