Is anyone operating more than one business? I have enjoyed owning and operating a lawn care business for the past several years, but I don't feel ready to stop there yet. I was thinking about starting several more businesses in the next few years while still growing the lawn care business. I'm thinking about possibly starting some sort of new biz in 2005 and another one in 2006 or 2007. I have several ideas for the types of businesses to start up, but haven't completly settled on one yet. My question is I still want to maintain a certain portion of control over each business and I feel as though I might be trying to stretch myself to thin. Is it reasonable to assume that you can effectively manage multiple businesses at one time? Does anyone running multiple businesses have any advice on operating more than one business at a time. Specifically on how to manage both while still giving each one the attention that they need in order to continue to grow.
