04 | Working In Your Business VS On Your Business

There’s a big difference between working in your business and working on your business but not everyone understands this concept. So, what is the difference and which is better to practice?

Working IN Your Business

Handling a million different tasks on your own and applying yourself in every aspect of your business.

Dealing with all of the finances, payments, supply orders, etc.

Creating invoices and doing all of the paperwork.

Making sales and meeting with clients.

Working ON Your Business

Marketing your business to gain more clients and encourage expansion.

Hiring a great team for help and refining your leadership skills.

Developing a strong business plan and constantly coming up with new ways to grow.

Always learning about new products and services that you could potentially offer to your clients.

Now that you have read the criteria for working on and in your business, it’s probably a lot easier to understand the differences.

Working in your business means that you are the sole force behind your business’s success. Working on your business means that you have the support and stability you need to continue earning revenue even when you are absent.

Can you see why it is so easy to fall into the trap of working in your business versus on your business?
