Passive Income… Is there Really Such a Thing?

I was speaking with a client today about improving their web site’s organic search engine rankings and other ways to increase their site traffic. The outcome was to increase their income. The topic of Passive Income came up… and we both agreed that there really is NO SUCH THING as passive income. At some point, you had to do something. You had to send out an email, create a web site, mail a direct response letter or do something related to adding value.

The money will not just flow to you without some effort.  There is no Free Lunch. As my prosperity Mentor Randy Gage says, “The only free cheese is in the mouse trap!”

I’ve been self-employed my entire life. I’ve made millions and lost millions on my journey to creating wealth. I’ve hired the right people and the wrong people and continue to learn life’s lessons along the way.  Through it all, I’d hardly call my efforts “passive”, but now after years of investing time and money I have several streams of income.

What do you think?  Do you Agree or Disagree?  Comment here and let me know your opinion.

— Until next time,

    Thanks for the shout out. Good points here. I love to set up passive income streams. But they always come after hard work.
