Combining a Side Business, Volunteer Work and a Full-time Career?

How to find time to do all the things you are passionate about, the best you can? A question I have been learning the answer to ever since I was 6 years old.

I have always had to keep several balls in the air, and being devoted to more than one project at the same time. The story of my life. But I must elaborate, it is a life that I chose myself. Do you also have a passion for doing different things and do you gain energy from being involved in and/or leading multiple ventures, including a full-time job? If yes, then keep reading:)
