  1. Focus on Time Management


Ryan Bishti has found that to balance his diverse business portfolio; he needs to organize his time and stick to a schedule. He only has so much time in the day, and he is willing to sacrifice some of that time for more productive use. Bishti recently went backpacking through Europe, but he had one goal: to write his book. Bishti follows a strict routine each night when he comes home from work. He writes down all of the things that need to be done in the morning and then moves on to his other tasks. He reviews his schedule and makes sure that he has accomplished everything he needs to do.


  1. Develop the Right Team


Bishti has found that the best way to succeed in business is to surround himself with the right people. Having a strong team helps him stay organized, focused, and on time. Bishti works with an assistant and a business manager who help keep his schedule and accounts straight. He also has a social media manager to manage his Twitter account, Facebook page, and website. Bishti has found that it is important to have more than one person managing your social media accounts because there are so many different ways people can interact with them.


As Bishti has learned, there are many ways to manage a business, and it can be done in different ways. The key is to develop the right team and stick to a set schedule.
