I wonder what is your opinion.
Should a person at the beginning of his entrepreneurial life shoot for multiple sources of income (even combining freelance hustle and business/businesses), or should he put all of his efforts into one business and risk that he will be out of the game if it fails?

This.

Just start learning multiple skills I would say: copywriting, coding, selling, cold calling, marketing, ... Keep your eyes open for opportunities and try several things out. See what works for you.

You first step is to make $1. Find a way. Quit wasting time thinking about it or analyzing. Make $1.

How will you complete this part by this Tue morning?

I'm not much of a multitasker, so I'm in favour of the sniper rifle. I'd rather do one job good than two jobs okay-ish. I guess there's an exception for dumb labour, something that doesn't distract your mind too much from your goal. I'd be okay delivering mail for example, because it gives me a lot of time to think about my business still while making money to keep myself afloat.

Wow, this is a loaded question...ha! It depends on many circumstances but...you can't win at multiple businesses if you haven't learned how to win at 1.

Good luck!
