How to make more Money and Work Less than you do at Your Day Job

Reading time: minute(s)

One of the biggest perks of earning a passive income is that it’s possible to earn more while working less. With the right opportunity and with some dedication, you can set up an income stream that allows you to make more than you do at your day job.

Passive income is income that you earn continually for the same efforts. Common examples of passive income include selling books or trainings, investing in real estate and selling rights to use your creative materials. With this kind of income, your earning potential increases significantly and you can earn a higher salary without working as much as you do at your current job.

Most people start earning a residual income while they are working full time. If you have a career but are looking for ways to earn additional money from home or want to take the leap into self-employment, there are some steps you should take first.

Determine Your “Why”

First, you need to decide why you want to start your own business, if it’s in network marketing or other passive income stream opportunities. When I ask people this question, most people respond that they want to earn more money, have more freedom and have more control over their career. These are all great benefits that come with earning a passive income and they are definitely good reasons to get into this business.

But, chances are that there are other things that make you tick. Maybe you are motivated by the thought of getting to do your dream job, have more time with your family or finally have the opportunity to travel while still earning an income. Whatever it is that drives you, identify it and strive toward making it a reality.

Plant the Seeds of a Passive Income

In most cases, people aren’t able to quit their day job immediately and start a new business. But, what you can do is start planting the seeds of a passive income so that when you are ready to take the leap, you’ll start earning more than you did at your day job very quickly.

Look for the right opportunity for your source of passive income. Then, start setting some goals. These goals will help drive your business, so don’t be afraid to write ambitious goals that will lead you to success.

It’s essential that you have a strategic business plan in place before you take the leap and start relying entirely on your passive income. When you have a plan, you are much more likely to succeed.

Set up Your Income Stream

When things begin to take shape, you have identified an excellent opportunity, have set goals and have a business plan, you can set up your income stream so that it is reliable and so you can make more money with it than you do at your job.

Work with an accountant to understand tax benefits, start marketing your business, network with others, set up a website and start working to build your business. Then, set up your income stream, such as investing in real estate or selling a product. The idea is to start earning money from home while you are still working so that when you quit, you’ll be all set with your new income stream.

By planning carefully and laying a solid foundation you can start earning more money and live the dream lifestyle of someone who works less and earns more. To get one-on-one help creating a plan to start earning a passive income, contact me.
