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..

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…

When I was over 100k in delinquent debt

When I was over 100k in delinquent debt on the brink of losing everything I had to look myself in the mirror and take inventory. After making what I considered a tremendous amount of money at the time, now I sit here and realized I exhausted my savings, investments, credit, and almost ALL resources. I was blaming everything. The economy, bad partners, bad employees, stock market, location, bad vendors...you name it...I blamed it. But again, I had to take inventory How did I get here? Was it the economy? or was it me? Was it time to close businesses? Sell businesses? Sell assets? Was I successful as I thought I was? After careful consideration... I came to the conclusion I did work hard... I did do some things right.... but here I was... because I made some bad decisions and didn't hustle hard enough. Success made me soft. I stopped doing what I did to get there and coasted a bit. I did not prepare myself. I did not insulate myself. The economy WAS bad, but I still should have had better…
