The trick in juggling multiple businesses and income streams is this:

- Start with just one at one time.
- Systemize it. Document how everything is done. Create guidelines for things that can't be systemized.
- Hire good managers.
- Then add the next venture.
Hi Ankesh,

That's a great example! (I'm a fan of Richard Branson...)

His autobiography is fascinating reading, and quite inspiring, too. Not everything he's done has been a success - but it proves, you don't have to succeed at everything, in order to be a success overall. Even the "greats" fail every now and then - it's all part of the journey...!

He's also a master of the publicity stunt... (note that some can be a little controversial!)

10 Greatest Virgin PR Stunts of All Time

I've written media releases, but never done a publicity stunt (yet)... That's still on the list...

Best wishes,
