#31: Should You Start Multiple Businesses Or Focus On Just One?

There is a conflict over how you should be spending your time as an entrepreneur. Some people will say that you should focus on just one business, pour your all in to it and make it the best it can possibly be. But others will tell you that is too risky. Diversify. Build as many income streams as possible. 

Well, it is not quite as simple as saying one option is always better than the other. In this episode, we talk about how to balance your goals, your personality and the opportunities available to help decide if you should be building multiple businesses.

#30: How To Be A Good Boss – Learning Leadership & Management Skills

A brainstorm on how to learn the skills of being a good boss. We discuss everything from the hiring process to discipline, office culture to employee welfare. 

On this episode Sam Priestley is joined by guest host Dan Lim. Dan is not a natural leader but puts a lot of work into his personal business development and has been working hard to improve his management skills. He now runs a team of seven at his software firm and has some great insights and wisdom. Even better is that he sees his development as a work in progress and is actively looking to improve his skills as a manager.

As a terrible manager myself. Being both a people pleaser and an introvert, I found this conversation really useful.
