Acquiring Income Passive

Acquiring income passive: The way to attain financial independence is through acquiring passive income.

Passive income is something that flows to you and is largely independent of the number of hours worked in a job.

It needs to be pointed out that there is really no such thing as completely passive income because every dollar of passive income must flow from some kind of work or effort in the first place.

For example, while rental income might seem to be passive income, the task of finding and investing in property, together with managing the tenant, filling in tax returns etc. is anything but passive!

A good example of passive income is royalty payments paid to musicians. They write a song once and are potentially paid a royalty each time the song is played. The initial act of writing and recording the song wasn’t passive, but the ongoing payments when it is included on music CDs (sometimes many years later) is. Just think of the Beatles!

The word ‘passive’ really means avoiding being paid by the hour.

Instead you seek to do some work today and leverage off it tomorrow. This leverage is in the form of receiving multiple payments without the need to work again.

For example, if you invest in a positive cashflow property then you hope that the work involved in finding and acquiring the property will create a positive income stream that will last until you sell the property. One days work now for a lifetime of return later.

    any interesting article like yours. It’s pretty worth enough for me.

    In my view, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content as you
    did, the internet will be much more useful than ever before.
