"Where's your passive?"



People often come to me asking advice about business. Mostly, it's about money and or income. One of the questions always I ask is how often they get paid. The answer always seems to be "When I move product/service XYZ." My response is always, "Where's your passive?" 


For most people, the concept of making money when they produce something is easy. However, many are stumped when thinking of ways to make money when business is slow, something happens to their ability to produce, or they simply don't feel like working as hard.

The answer lies in understanding the difference between active and passive income streams.

Opportunities are available in any economy, good or bad in any business. If you're positioned correctly and have the experience and knowledge, you have the greatest opportunity to take advantage of this. 


It's fine to love what you do, I encourage it...but bills still need to be paid. We've all heard the age old adage "Find a way to get paid for what you love to do" Today, I'm going to add to that. Find a way to get paid for what you love to do...and get paid again..and get paid again...and again..


The harsh reality of it is, businesses big or small depend on passive income. Learn how it works. Without the knowledge of making money, the world will push you around. If you haven't experienced that yet, don't hold your breath!

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…

Are your best days in the past or are they yet to come?

Ask yourself.
Are your best days in the past  or are they yet to come?
Well, when you ask 99% of  people out there, here’s what  happens.
They pause and then…
They're going to kind of look down and let out a little sigh and they’re going to tell you  something like: 
"Back in my day… 
...I was the shit." 
Or they’re going to say: 
"Yeah... life used to be so easy… Life used to be… so chill."
Right?
That’s just depressing. 
Seriously.
Who cares about your past?
I’m telling you if your best days  are in the past, you’ve got a  problem.
A big one.
It tells me first of all, you aren't looking forward to anything. You probably hate your work.

 You probably have no control of your
