Think YOU'RE Busy???

Check out the side projects of Aubrey McClendon, as documented by the Wall Street Journal:

  • Chairman and CEO of a Fortune 500 Company
  • Working interest owner of thousands of gas and oil wells
  • 19% owner of the Oklahoma Thunder NBA team
  • Resort real estate developer in Texas/Oklahoma and Michigan
  • Part-owner of a cancer treatment center
  • Owner of a cattle ranch
  • Part-owner of several restaurants
  • Part-owner of a TV station 
  • Investor/owner/manager of a hedge fund and two venture capital firms
  • Oenophile extraordinaire 
Now, not all of these were concurrent ventures, but most are ongoing. Oh, and I think he owns at least four houses in different states. As I struggle to scratch out a living with two little kids and a curious web site, I wonder how he has time to even keep track of his many ventures, let alone manage them.

There are people who know how to make the best use of their time and still have enough time to spare for other things.
