How do you think your daily grind is? Do you know there are multiple ways of making money, living better, fewer struggles? Allow me to enlighten your focus on what passive income is.
Passive vs. Active Incomes
Active income is what most people know about and of course what most are doing and will continuously do until retirement. Are you tired of working all the time? At some point in life do you ever feel like this is a routine, nothing changes, work becomes a burden? Active income, you clock in and get paid for your labor, always active. If you don't show up for work does your check stay the same? Of course not, active meaning consistent effort. As much as your job loves you or your enthusiasm they will not pay if your a no show.
Passive income is work you do once and get paid for it consistently. Make sure its something that suits your passion, skill-sets, or experience. An example is what I do, I write. I invest money, time, and labor in my passion but once its done and my books are published that passion grows. It increases over time. Passive income will change your daily grind making life fresh again. Wonder how the rich are living so lavishly? And some of them can make millions in seconds without lifting a finger? Once you do that work your money grows as you sleep, playing games, or heck even on vacation. Doesn't that sound pleasing?
Always have 2-3 incomes. You can have two active jobs but try a side hustle of passive income. Even if its small amount that is still dollars being made while you are lounging around. Keep in mind the daily grind people boast about or simply believe is working is a tad bit far-fetch. There will always be a deadline on payday. There will always be a deadline for bills. Maybe one active job and one passive that way you have a consistent salary. Even if your passive side hustle generates $100 a month. Is that not more than what you had before?
The way I see it passive income will always top active. Find your balance and persevere. Investing is another good idea. Find your talent and find a good market.
Just google different types of active income and you will find something that fits your passion!
