Good morning Fools,

I'm in my early 40's and wanting to expand into other investments other than stocks. My question is this: Let's say i'm investing $10,000 into a business venture and it provides me a steady, growing rate of return through a quarterly dividend. At what point is it prudent to pull my original investment money out and spread it into another venture? With stocks, I've long been an advocate of DRIP investing in order to maintain wealth, but with non-stock ventures, I'm guessing it's not as simple. I also want to guard against being too concentrated in any one investment and have multiple streams of passive income coming in as I get closer to retirement age. Thoughts?
