Stop Trading Hours for Dollars and Start Building Passive Income

Reading time: minute(s)

If you feel like you are stuck with a nine to five job where you essentially trade your time for money, realize you can do something about it. In fact, it’s entirely possible to break that cycle altogether and live the ultimate freedom lifestyle. That’s what I did, and you can too.

I decided that to spend more time with my family I needed to find a way to earn more while working less. The solution I found was to build a passive income business, on a part time basis while still keeping my day job.  From there, I took my business profits and then invested in real estate income properties to build more assets.

If you want to know my passive income formula, don’t hesitate to reach out to me…

I’d be more than happy to share it with you! 

The Problem with Traditional Income

The biggest problem with the traditional income model is that you lack control. You are at the mercy of your boss and have to work 40 or more hours a week… essentially trading your time for income.

You are restricted by business politics and formal promotions if you want to make more money and in most cases, you don’t get to make all the calls or do what you are passionate about.

People with traditional jobs often feel like they are trapped in the rat race. They spend their days working at someone else’s business to get a paycheck and they aren’t really happy. They don’t have flexibility of time or money… which would allow them to pursue the things they are really interested and take full control of their future.

There IS a Better Way

But, there is a better way. You don’t have to rely on a job that essentially pays you for your time and takes away your freedom. The solution? Passive income. When I first started my journey of earning passive income, I knew that to really make a difference in my life I had to find ways to leverage my opportunities and work to earn more.

Passive income is income that you earn repeatedly for a single effort. Real estate investments, production of creative works and network marketing businesses are just a few examples of ways you can earn passive income streams.

This income model solves the hours-for-pay dilemma; it lets you work less and still earn more. As you start earning passive income, your eyes will be opened to a whole new world. A world where you can strategically invest your time for the highest returns, all while being your own boss and living your life the way you want to.

When you earn passive income, you can set your own schedule, make decisions for your business, pursue things you are interested in, and, perhaps best of all, give yourself a raise whenever you want.

A passive income business will let you spend less time working and more time living your life, so you can regain control of your time and money.

How you can Work Less and Earn More

Does this all sound too good to be true? I’m here to tell you it’s not. Anyone can pursue this path and start earning a passive income so they can enjoy all these perks and personal benefits.

Making this lifestyle work is all about recognizing your “why” or what inspires you to take on this challenge. Understanding what you want out of your business will help you make the right decisions so you can regain freedom and control.

The first step to making this dream a reality is doing your due diligence. This means doing your homework about different passive income opportunities, businesses, products and what it will take to make your business a reality.

Next, you’ll need to find the right opportunity for you. The opportunity that lets you do something you are passionate about and makes it possible for you to start earning income repeatedly… without trading your time for dollars.

You don’t have to do this alone. I work with all kinds of business leaders and network marketers to help them increase their income. I teach people how to recognize opportunities, put together a strategic business plan and achieve their income goals.
