Multiple Google Plus Profiles

 Hello to all!  I'm running in circles (no pun intended!) and need some insight.!   When I created my Google Apps account for my business, Finley Financial Solutions,  I also ended up with a G+ account for my new email address (alton@go-finley.com).  My initial reaction/thought was to delete this account (avcfinley@gmail.com) and just go with my new one.  Now I'm starting to change my mind because I am having a tough time keeping the two of separated (my Finley G+ Business Page vs. my personal G+ account) since they have the same login email address of alton@go-finley.com. So now I'm actually thinking I need to delete/merge the business account and use my gmail account, but concerned that may actually be a mistake.

Around and around it goes!  

Please help.!

Hi Alton,

Just confirming - you have a personal Google+ Profile and a Google+ Business page and you're wondering which one to keep?

Can you provide the two URLs please?

Hi Priya,

 
that is correct.  Here are the links...
 
#1 
 
 
 
#2  
 
 
 
I am pretty sure I am just going to delete account #2.  
 
Unless there is an essential feature that I will lose by not having an apps based G+ account.?
 
I'm probably just over-thinking the whole thing.! 
 
Thanks a bunch for your help!

Hey Priya,

Just letting you know I went ahead and deleted it, since it was just leading to more confusion (new followers).

In the process I did find where I could have made the whole thing private/unpublished.

Settings>Audience>Custom

I just deleted it anyways for simplicity sake.

Ok Alton

No worries - let me know if anything pops up though that seems weird, now that the second account has been deleted :)

Well...   yep it is!

 

My reviews cannot be accessed anymore through the Google Maps app.  

 

Keeps saying "Cannot reach server."

 

Looks like I confused it!

Hi Alton,

Ahh, there were reviews attached to the page you deleted? Ok, that is a problem!

Let's see if this is fixable - is this page your business as well? https://plus.google.com/u/0/+finleyfinancialsolutionsmemphis/about
