    Smile in/on my business?

    I have also been spending these early days of 2007 working, not only in my business, but on my business. what is the difference in the meaning between on my business and in my business?
    Thanks in advance

    "in my business" - within the office/shop/factory

    "on my business" - doing my work

    I think, in that sentence the person means:

    "in my business" = doing the daily work of my business, seeing that my customers needs are being met and that things are running as smoothly as possible

    "on my business" = trying to grow my business, trying to making my business more effective and efficient
