Types of Income: Explained...



There are a million and one ways to make money.

There are plenty of methods to create income. You can have a job, have a business, have income producing assets, or even "sit on the system." Funny thing is, even with all the methods of creating income there are only two primary types. These are active and passive. Sounds simple right?

Let's dig deeper..

If you haven't heard of passive income, don't feel bad. Most haven't. Most school systems only teach active income. I graduated # 16 student in my high school class and #11 in my college class AND I was in the school of business! I'm not saying that to brag, I'm saying that to show you I paid attention in school. I didn't hear about passive income until I picked up my first Robert Kiyosaki book. Crazy right?

Ok, chances are you already understand and are participating in active income. If you create your income actively, it means you have to perform some sort of task to get your money, EVERY time. If you're having a challenge figuring out if you income is active or passive, I'll be glad to help you.

If you don't do what you did today to make money, will you still get paid tomorrow?

If you said no, you create active income. You have to perform for your money. Wouldn't it be cool if your money had to perform for you? It can, that's exactly what passive income is. Creating passive income develops a system that makes your money work FOR you. Would you rather work? Or make your money work?

One of my favorite authors, says your money should have an occupation. He says your money should leave and come back with friends. Wouldn't that be great?!?! If that sounds good to you, find a way to get the money working FOR you!

Dig deeper on this subject. Learn for yourself.

You'll never look at money the same way ever again.

Let's get to work..

"The most important career choice you'll make is who you marry" 
Don't let anybody guilt you into a miserable marriage! 
The majority of married people that you know are miserable because they settled to societal pressures .....even if they won't admit it. 
Some folks out here getting married to say you're married.....but to each his own....as for me and my house if we can't be peaceful, loyal, & ain't eem trying to shoot at the same baskets & pay the same taxes I gotta keep it moving!
This is not to say marriage can't work. I absolutely believe it can, but with the right connection, reasons, and plan! But what do I know? I'm just a fat kid that eats too many crabcakes

Whats your end game?

Whats your end game? 
Are you, right now, where you thought you'd always be in life?
Are you close to it? 
You can’t change the past. 
Think of all the hours at all your jobs. And that’s put you where you are today. Were you working on building a business of your own with residual income, a business you can sell or pass down, or were you trading your time for a paycheck? 
Was it worth it?
Are you getting what you set out for?
It’s important that we all stop and think. Are we doing something that aligns with our end game. The sad thing is that most people don’t even have an end game because they never sat down to think about and design their perfect life and how they’ll get there. Most people spend more time planning vacations than they do planning their futures!

People say we should all dream again. Sure, dreams are good to have. But most people just become dreamers. The graveyards are full of dreams that were never lived, because they never created a plan....or if they did tried to exec…

Decade end....

Quick question...
Have you reviewed your decade yet?
I'm in the process of taking some time at the end of this year not only to look at the past year, but to review the past 10 years as the decade comes to a close.
Isn't it amazing how far you've come since 2010 :)
Where were you in your business in 2010?
Where are you now?
What did you start?
What did you end?
What investments did you make?
What skill sets did you learn?
What did you miss out on?

I believe everything happens and unfolds in the way it should... I challenge you to do a personal and business audit. Decide what you want to keep...Decide what you want to discard. Decide what you want to do more of. Decide what you want to do less of. 
Let's make your next move your best move and the rest of your life the best of your life....and make the beginning of this new decade one to remember!
