Hustler, are you balancing multiple businesses and aren’t sure how to get everything done?
*If you’re reading this post and nodding your head, you really ARE a Hustler!*
Believe it or not, I can completely relate to you.
>>In 2015-2016, I was running a wedding photography business, I was teaching other photographers how to run their businesses, and that was when I also started my subscription, Social Curator.<<
Because I was juggling so many balls in the air, I learned a lot about running multiple businesses and ensuring I didn’t drop any.
Below are my top 4 tips on how to balance multiple businesses without dropping any balls *although I can’t promise you won’t have a few gray hairs!*.
- Set Priorities
At the beginning of every workday, ask yourself: What is the most important thing that needs to get done for each business today? Notice I didn’t say things, I said thing (as in, ONE!). Don’t try to bite off more than you can chew, friend. Choose one goal for each business per day and then take action on them as efficiently as possible… which leads me to my next point!
- Set Time Limits
In order to maximize the time you spend working in each business, set time limits for yourself. For example, reserve 30 minutes to write a blog post or give yourself 15 minutes between meetings to post on social media. Giving yourself limits and deadlines like these are crucial to ensuring you are efficiently accomplishing your goals.
- Set Clear Goals
Once you have your priorities straight and proper time limits attached to each task, it is important to set clear goals for each business with detailed milestones and deadlines to achieve them. To learn about how I set quarterly goals for my business, download my free Productivity Planner >>HERE!<<
- Get Help
I know, I know… no one wants to hear this tip! But hear me out, Buttercup: You can’t do it all alone. For years, I was a solopreneur. Sure, JD helped me with answering emails and keeping our finances in order, but I was the one physically shooting, editing, and meeting clients. Finally, I realized that if I wanted to scale my business without burning out, I needed to hire an assistant… and once I did, my business grew exponentially.
As we come to the end of this list, I have to admit: running multiple businesses isn’t sexy. nor is it fun every day.
But if you have priorities, time limits, goals, and help, you WILL be able to balance it all.
*And just remember, I’m always in your corner cheering you on.*
