Are your needs complicated enough to need separation into substacks?

for you. Are the skill areas different enough that you need to
compartmentalize them out into separate stacks? But if you need
substacks the process isn't much harder. You go to a substack by

go stack "Fred"

and can go back to your main stack by saying

go stack "TheNameOfYourMainstack"

To make things easier I usually say

push card
go stack "Fred"

and then to go back to my main stack I just say

pop card
