Juggling roles is an art I've honed through careful prioritization and effective time management. Whether through our monetisation agency, P&H Homes, or providing mentorship, each responsibility is approached with a focused mindset. Delegation is key—I surround myself with a reliable team, enabling seamless coordination across ventures. It's about finding harmony, recognizing when to immerse in specific tasks, and maintaining a holistic view of my entrepreneurial landscape.
