Owning just one successful business can be a challenge. So how do some entrepreneurs manage to juggle more than one at a time? It’s generally not a matter of being smarter or faster or even needing less sleep than other business owners. It all comes down to leadership.
I don’t believe the ability to lead is something you are born with. I believe it is a learned skill, just like playing an instrument, ice skating, or math. And like any skill, it takes practice and perseverance to be really good at it. But, it’s not as difficult as you might think.
John Quincy Adams said:
“If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.”
It’s not about showing off your knowledge . . . it’s about sharing it with others.
It’s not about asking people to get behind you . . . it’s about allowing them to get in front.
Leaders are not necessarily the smartest people in the room, but they are the most inspiring.
To manage multiple successful businesses, owners need not be willing to work 80 hours a week and study 20 more. They know they can’t do it all themselves. They don’t try to. Instead, they bring others on board and are willing to teach, delegate and inspire.
That’s how leaders manage more than one successful business at a time. No juggling required.
