More than one community?

(Sarah Hawk) #1

How many people here manage more than one community?

I had a conversation with @Rachel_McGuigan yesterday about spreading ourselves too thin. As well as my full time job here, I run another community part-time and am on several committees.

We tell clients that they should always hire a full time CM, and I’m realising first-hand how important that is (my part-time community is in a holding pattern because I don’t have time to grow it to its full potential).

Rather than helping lots of people, are we doing them a disservice by not being able to commit the time required to do the best job possible?

How do you get this balance right?

I have only the community I’m hired for at this time. However, I’m considering drawing together a community to go with my dog training. I’ve been incredibly hesitant because I don’t want to start something like that if I am not sure whether I will have the time. So, I would love to hear what others are doing and how they are managing to do it.
