The answer couldn’t be more clear: it’s time for you to start another business.
It’s something that you’ve had on your mind for quite some time, and now you feel like finally taking the leap. But some questions come to mind when thinking about running multiple businesses, and you need to make sure they’re answered before you dive in head-first.
Luckily for you, you’ve come to the right place. This article talks briefly about if it’s possible to own multiple businesses (spoiler: it is) and how you need to go about managing your businesses to ensure you get the most success. Keep reading to learn more!
Can I Run Multiple Businesses?
Take a moment to think about the most successful business moguls in the past half-century. What’s something that the majority of them have in common? You’ve guessed it: they run more than one business.
Running multiple businesses is beneficial in many ways. Not only will it make you stand out in your niche,but it will also help you bring in supplemental income and make stronger gains in your field.
So the real question that you should be asking is not can you run more than one business, but how do you do it. That said, here a bit of a breakdown as to what you need to bear in mind when starting up your new company.
Going About Creating an LLC
The first thing you’ll need to do it place your new company under an LLC license. An LLC, or a Limited Liability Company, is one of the many labels that you can place a company under – and a smart move for you to do with yours.
LLCs are perfect for startups; in fact, they work best in conjunction with sole proprietors (single owners) and partnerships (two or three people who are light on business funds). This is perfect for people to start a company no matter their finances.
Many Things in One
Alternatively, you simply can add your new business under your current one. Doing so would link the two (or more) businesses together under one umbrella corporation.
This is the best way to go if you want to get started fast and you simply want to add a branch off of your current business (for example, a fitness line of clothing branching off of your yoga business).
Stay in the Area
Many people think that to start a new business, you have to place it on the opposite side of the country from where your current one is. Not only is that false, but doing so can hinder your ability to manage them both.
Keep your businesses in the same region to make it easier to manage and grow both. You’ll be glad you did.
