One of the biggest things I see new entrepreneurs – and sometimes seasoned business owners -struggle with is having too many irons in the fire.
Being ‘multi-passionate’ is like juggling. . .
You don’t start with ALL the balls.
You start with one ball. And when you have a good handle on that, you add a second ball.
You practice with those two for a while and when you have a good handle on that, you add a third ball. And then when you get really good, you might add a 4th and even a 5th.
But if you start off with all three right out of the gate, you’ll be frustrated and feel like you never get anywhere. Practice will slow going and you’ll want to give up.
Moral of the story: you absolutely CAN have more than one passion, more than one business and be successful.
The key is to start with one, get a good solid base going, bring in some money with it consistently and then add the next one. Then rinse and repeat with each successive idea.
So, choose one to focus on first. Get it off the ground. Create momentum and allow that to propel you forward.
