"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!

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!

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…

"The most important career choice you'll make is who you marry"

"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
