Mr. Combs has his hands in multiple investments, including the TV network Revolt, the new music-based, multiple-platform channel; Sean John, the clothing line; CIROC, the alcoholic beverage; Bad Boy Entertainment, the record label — just to name four.

His business strategy involves creating opportunities and not being risk-averse.

Diddy told FORBES in a recent interview, “Right now my focus is Revolt and making it the No. 1, most-trusted, most-credible worldwide brand for music…and to get Revolt to be the quintessential definition of real time. I think that’s the future.”
