When you are interested in being an entrepreneur of several businesses, how do you know which one to focus on first?s
I am interested in art (which includes different forms of art), science, real estate, managing, finances, teaching, and etc. My head is just usually all over the place 24/7. entrepreneur business art music poetry dedicated technology social
At times it may seem overwhelming not to know exactly where to focus and counterproductive to constantly switch contexts. In reality, a career coming together is a coincidence of many aspects, incl. your expertise, the needs of a particular business or industry, and—most importantly—the two aligning at the same point in time & space. The broader your expertise—which will largely come from pursuing your interests—the better your chances of finding a need & application for it.
The most successful careers & businesses are often built around domains that have little in common. Investing in multiple interests does not mean that only one will yield a return and all the others will turn out to have been a waste. To the contrary, being an expert in one field while also being interested & involved in others will give you an edge over competition and potentially lead to truly groundbreaking innovations.
To answer your question: keep an open mind & follow opportunities as they emerge. If possible, try different things in parallel, rather than sequentially: if your studies focus on science, practice art in your free time, if you study finance, pick a book on management. It does not matter what you focus on first; if you really have a talent or inclination for a particular field, you’ll find out soon enough; if you don’t have that single gift, you’ll become incredibly versatile in the process of looking for it.
You can become an entrepreneur or start a business as an individual. If you are considering art, then there are many ways to do that either as an individual or in a group. For instance, paintings and drawing are usually individual activities.
If you are inclined toward a group, you might do what I did, in high school some friends and I started a band. It lead to a period of my life that was exciting and monetarily rewarding, as during college I made income as a professional musician.

Hopes this helps!!!
I would point out that there are lots of opportunities within companies to be entrepreneurial. Product Development teams are constantly looking for how to sell new things.
Best of luck.
