How to handle multiple MySQL installations for database design, and web development

I've installed MySQL Workbench and am working through Paul Dubois' book.

In addition, I'm starting a web project using Laravel Valet. The tutorials suggest using Sequel Pro.

How do you handle having a MySQL install for Workbench and an install for another program?

Every time I try to login, the server of one install prevents access to the other. I tried aliases:

So in ~/.bashrc

alias mysqltest="mysql -S /path/to/testdbserver.sock"
alias mysql="mysql -S /path/to/Workbenchserver.sock"

However, things are always crossed up.
