It all started After Christmas of 2009. I talked with mere friends about a book that I wanted to read, never speaking a word of it to my family. Christmas morning comes around and I unwrap a present. That present, surprisingly, was the book that I had wanted to read, thought about, spoke about ~ it all just seemed erie! As soon as I finished the other book I was reading during that time, I immediate jumped into this new book I had received. Carefully reading every word and not being able to put it down unless it was to catch a few hours of sleep, work etc. As you can probably already tell - this book had changed my life.
Rich Dad Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki was this book that I am talking about. It has been out for a few years now and he actually has a whole collection on the series. To summarize what I had received from it is this - I wanted to get out of the rat race of having to receive good grades, to get accepted into a higher learning education, get good grades again, get a good job to WORK FOR MONEY, to get promoted, to work harder for more money to which I have higher expenses etc~ the process simply is never ending.
Therefore, to get out of this rate race that we are so inclined to do since the age of 5, depending on when you start school, I wanted to start with passive income - more so online. What is passive income? Passive income is something that brings you cash flow on a frequent basis where you do not have to spend time (little time is okay for tweaks & maintenance), energy but simply still receive this income. Wow! Who wouldn't want that? Where you don't do anything but collect money? Sounds perfect to me! The only thing is, you need to learn and be financially and sociably literate to do so. I am in graduate school which kind of goes against everything. I am in school though to learn - not to get good grades and get a high paying job. I am here to learn as much as I can while I am in school (you can see my MBA Blog). I also will go to work not to work for money, but to simply work to learn about how business are run etc.
How have I been receiving Passive Income? Well, since I am 22 years old (as of yesterday!), I love to make money online and I simply didn't have enough funds to invest into real estate etc. I then started this blog - Real Passive Income Online and it is all FREE. I knew my situation and goals and figured this would be a a great place to start - graduate student, 22 years old, spends vast amounts of time on the internet, has made money on here for free before etc, it all just works too perfect.
What can YOU do to receive passive income on here? Well I have all of these posts prior to this one that explain many ways. I have sites from my first post - they start you off by you having to do some work (time mostly) to start earning but once you get the hang of it you move towards your focus on referrals. I have this blog and others with google's adsense, and the more I write about my niche specific, passion driven topic - increase in traffic, which results in higher chances of google ad clicks which results in higher google adsense earnings. I write on eHow.com, which is simply how to articles, which further brings in more.
How does this work? Simple! The almighty Internet is a business that runs 24 hours per day, 7 days per week, 365 days per year. What other types of businesses are open every second of the year? Post them below please : )
I know this is a long post but I wanted to tell my main reason. That main reason is to share these opportunities with YOU. YOU can start relieving some stress off of your shoulders and begin creating this online passive income. I have many posts on how to do that and get started, the ball will be in your court. With time and an open, creative mind - the amount you can earn is truly endless. If you have a goal, do not give up on it and instead get off your feet and make it happen. Free passive income will be the starting point of my journey and I am curious on where it will take me. When will you start? When will you start? The Time is NOW!
