Active income is the traditional way of earning money when you have a job; an individual trades their time for an hourly rate and is paid wages or a salary. This model applies whether they are working in a restaurant, shop or an office. Active income requires you as the employee to be in a specific place at agreed times and to follow a predictable routine. The primary benefit is that you will receive income that you can predict and that you can plan your expenditure precisely. The major disadvantage is that you are limited by the amount of hours a day and the fact that the more work you do, the more tired you will become.
Passive income is income that you can generate once you have completed all the initial work for a project and then set up the processes to create recurring passive income. A good example of this is provided by the music industry, an artist writes, records and produces an album and then when it is released, they will receive passive income from its sales.
From Active to Passive
In the video, I discuss specific ways that you can transition from an active to a passive income model. It is not easy, you will have to do the work but once you have done it, you’ll be much closer to our shared goal of financial freedom.
