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.

you're building an EMPIRE Ankesh!!

.. but I was asking how many distinct "businesses" or income streams YOU could operate at the same time. I'm assuming your advice was to laser focus on one until profitable??

I'm a dummy trying to juggle three, work 40 (+) hours a week (but I'm weird in that I actually LIKE my j.o.b.), selling on Ebay, and sell a couple of services using Gimp ( on Fiverr).

AND since the service I'm offering is basically breaking out part of what I'm selling on Ebay I've started considering myself doing 2 1/2 "jobs."

still under my limit of three! adding to the domains I own as I've sold a couple before for $100s and it's a more passive form of income.
