Do you have any experience working multiple careers?

My first question filter: I have the opportunity to one day in the near future work two relatively well paying jobs. I want to know if anyone has any experience with the such, and can offer words of wisdom/caution, pros and cons. Snowflake details inside.

Job #1: Inherit family restaurant which has been successfully run for multiple decades, and which I grew up working in.
Job #2: Medical profession. The particular career in mind would offer the possibility to work PRN, half-time, or full-time, as needed.
My specific questions are as follows:
Have any of y'all been involved in two vastly different careers at the same time in your life?
Do the monetary gains outweigh the difficulties of juggling two careers? (Note: The decision is not based solely on finances, I truly love both careers)
Any advice to lend regarding bringing a close friend (brother-close, known-since-I-could-write-close) as a potential business partner in the restaurant? This particular friend is not money-crazed, has a good head on his shoulders, and will have another career as well, he also loves the restaurant business as it paid for most of his under-grad education.
Does anyone have any experience with the restaurant business, and being a successful family-man?
Thank you all, new hive-friends. I see the start of a beautiful relationship.
