In my five years as an SBI! business owner, many things have changed. Most of them are for the better!
For one thing, I am no longer a "website owner." I believe getting your brain around the concept of being a business person, not a website owner, is a huge hurdle that many entrepreneurs (including SBIers) never manage to leap over.
There are pros and cons of growing an online business. I now have ten websites/businesses (though I always keep saying I ought to thin out my portfolio), and as you would expect, there are growing pains with developing and managing so many different projects. (Note: When I use the term "site" or "website" in this post, think "business.")
As a SiteSell Services Specialist contracted to build web business sites for SiteSell clients, I now have even more balls in the air, often constructing several client sites simultaneously. Being professional when the pressure gets intense is critical.
Here are the pros and cons of expanding beyond a single website, with some pitfalls you should all aim to avoid.
