Take An Active Look At Passive Income

Where are we financially?  Where do we want to be?  How do we get from where we are to where we want to be?  These are all questions that only you can answer.  What I do know is that we all need to at least investigate ways of creating passive income.  Passive or residual income is that money that some call pajama money.  Whether you get up and go to work somewhere, or you just stay in the bed wearing your pajamas, this money will come in.  change your thoughts

 

This can be very important.  I learned the hard way when i lost my decent paying job.  Even though I was not making six-figures at this job, it was paying the bills.  When i lost that job, i saw just how much i needed it, or in reality how much I chose to depend on it.  I could have been using some of that income to begin building me a business or alternate source of income.  Even after that, I realized again the importance of creating passive income when I had a very serious accident.  I could not work for a while, but that did not stop the bills from rolling in.  As a matter of fact, that added on to the ever growing pile of bills.

That was my “ah ha” moment!  Maybe it took that blow to the head to get my attention.  I saw just how vulnerable I really am, and how quickly financial situations can change.  This when I made a decision to take control.  I realized that some people have talents that create residual income, or what they call royalties.  I don’t sing or rap well enough to get  contract, I can’t really pay any instruments, and I am not a good actor.  So, royalties do not look like they will be a part of my future.  What I could do was look for opportunities that could eventually produce passive residual.  There are a number of different ways to achieve this.  I am a little biased, because i like network marketing.  I ran across a great one called LegalShield.  That may not be for everyone, but we all should agree that we need to find something.  Life ca throw any of us a curve ball at anytime.  Just like in baseball, some of the time we will get a hit, and some of the time we won’t.  Will you be prepared for those times that you get out?  If not, you may be out of the game longer than you expect.  So, don’t look at passive income passively.  It may be a life changing decision!  Check out this brie video that I made.

Creating Passive Income

The creation of passive income is becoming a must in the world.  As living being we all have a time limit on how imagemuch effort we can exert in any venture. As an employee or even self-employed, we only have so many hours in the day. So, in turn that put a limit on how much we can make on our own. This is where getting into an opportunity that can be leveraged is paramount. Who wants to just make ends meet? Definitely not me, and I doubt that you do either. This is where taking advantage of an opportunity which can produce passive income needs to be researched.  You want to look at the credibility of the entity in which you are considering attaching yourself to. Has this opportunity withstood or have the potential to withstand the test of time? We have to look at the timing. Are there issues or problems that this entity or opportunity can relate to?  Is their a great number of competitors already addressing these issues, and Is this something that presents a solution to a need in the current market? Then take a look at what is trending. Does the market seem to be getting better, or is the need of the service ever increasing?

How many of us can honestly say that the job or position that we are currently in will allow us the opportunity to retire someday with our “dream lifestyle?” If it is dependent upon how many hours we can work, then for most of us the answer is probably no. This is why we have to be proactive starting NOW. There is no way that we can expect the government to take care of us in our “golden years.” They can’t even take care of our deficit right now. How can the produce money out of a bankrupt Medicare fund, a rapidly decreasing social security fund, and an ever weakening U.S. dollar?  I do not see that happening. This is why we are going to have to take action in securing our own financial freedom. I am not talking about any get rich quick scheme. I am not referring to some ponzy scheme. I am asking everyone to open their minds to income producing companies and business ventures that present the capability of passive residual income. The route that you choose will be up to you. Their are various opportunities out there. We just have to increase our financial intelligence to take advantage of them. This is some of the things that we will discuss in later posts and discussion. You may ask “how are we going to increase our financial intelligence?” The answer is in the question. “HOW!” If we will be Honest, Open-minded, and Willing then we can easily access the open doors of opportunity.

Shield Your Identity

Why do bad things happen to good people?  I do not have the answer to that question, but I would like to discuss a solution to reportedly one the biggest issues for the last 15 years consecutively.  The Federal Trade Commission has reported identity theft as the #1 consumer complaint for that period of time.  Over a billion people had their identities compromised as the result of some sort of breach just last year alone.  That averages a little more than a person a minute.  We have seen the large corporations on the news.  We even saw our own government have a security breach.  How much easier do you think it is to access our personal devices?

Identity theft comes in a myriad of forms.  The most common for that people think about is credit fraud.  Someone accessing your information and utilizing it for their monetary gain, but this is only a scratch on the service.

Social Security Fraud- this is where an individual’s social security number is utilized for someone else to live or obtain services as the person whose identity was stolen.  This is how many illegal aliens and terrorist can easily blend in here in our country undetected for such long periods of time.  Even if we don’t have a lot in our bank accounts, or even if we have bad credit, a person who cannot or is not supposed to be in this country will pay a hefty sum to have access to such information.

Driver’s License Fraud-  this is where an individual can used another persons license numbers & date of birth to obtain a valid driver’s license, apply for other benefits, and much much more.

Medical Fraud- this is where an individual can get medical insurance, or procedures performed, with all of the financial responsibility falling upon the unknowing victim.

Criminal/Character Fraud- this is where an individual obtains a person’s information for the sole purpose of committing a crime, unannounced to the the person who is about to be slapped with a criminal record.

Synthetic Fraud- this is where multiple people have components of their personal information combined to create a whole new identity. (ie. my name, your social security number, someone else’s date-of-birth, etc)  This form of identity theft would adversely affect each person involved whose information was utilized.
