How can I tell if my current Google Account is personal or business?

I have a personal Google account that I now realize is the wrong type of account for my business.  Following the instructions I deleted that account and tried 10 minutes later to set up a Google My Business account but the name was taken.  That's issue #1.  

 

I chose a similar name and continued setting up the new business account, yet upon completion it looks like I just set up another personal account.  How can I tell if my Google Account is a business account or not?  I've compared a few of my personal Google accounts to this new business account and they look the exact same... so I'm not actually sure what kind of account I have.  

 

How can one determine if their account is a business account or personal?

Please include the following with your question:
1. Full business name
2. Current business address
3. Current telephone number
4. Google+ URL

Let me rephrase... "How can ANY business owner determine if their account is a business account or personal?". The answer to that question shouldn't require posting a phone number or address.

but it requires to know the Google+ URL in question - at least
