Don’t Pay Your Bills

Friday, August 16th, 2013

What if you really want to quit your job and go independent, but you’re worried about paying your bills? Today I’m able to enjoy the best of both worlds. My bills are easily paid from my passive income streams, and I get to do work I love and enjoy tremendous freedom. But when I was […]

Let the Old World Collapse

Monday, April 8th, 2013

I frequently receive emails from people contemplating major career and lifestyle transitions. Their stories have many variations, but they typically have these elements in common: dissatisfaction with their current work or lifestyle (or lack of meaningful work) feeling that they’re on the wrong path (possibly for years) feeling of being on a treadmill that goes […]

FitDesk Review

Wednesday, March 13th, 2013

In addition to evaluating the GeekDesk, I also recently tested another piece of equipment to make office work more active. Called the FitDesk, it’s a small but functional workspace mounted atop a stationary exercise bike. So you can burn calories pedaling while you work on your laptop or tablet, watch TV, or play video games. […]

Site Build-It is now running their ever popular 2-for-1 holiday special, which they do every year at this time. With this special you can start two different web-based passive income streams for the price of one of their educational and hosting packages. This is their best deal of the year, and it’s good through midnight on […]

Is It Time for You to Stop Dabbling and Get Serious?

Tuesday, December 11th, 2012

If you want to start on a serious career path, don’t even think about giving up during the first year. Very little happens during the first year in terms of results. Most businesses aren’t even profitable in their first 2 years; it takes them that long just to become sustainable, even for fairly small businesses. […]

Exercise Your Freedom Fully

Friday, August 17th, 2012

Many people become self-employed to have more freedom and flexibility. Not as many take full advantage of those benefits though. It’s common for people to find themselves self-employed in ways that make them slaves to their desks. They may have removed their old boss, but they ride themselves just as hard as their old boss […]

Free Audio on Goals, Life Purpose, and Relationships

Thursday, July 5th, 2012

Last week I shared a free audio program from Hale Dwoskin, author of The Sedona Method. Several thousand people have already listened to it, so it’s been pretty popular. I’m happy to say that Hale created another free audio on goals, life purpose, and relationships, and this one is free as well. It’s under 22 minutes, so […]

Jobs vs. Passive Income

Friday, May 11th, 2012

Many people have the limiting belief that passive income is weird, unusual, complicated, or confusing. As I’ve mentioned previously, passive income isn’t particularly difficult in practice. In many ways, earning a living through streams of passive income is easier than earning a living through a job or as an independent contractor, especially in the long run. […]

Conscious Success

Tuesday, December 6th, 2011

In the mid-2000s, most of my income came from advertising. The Google Adsense ads on my website were bringing in $9-10K per month, and it was totally passive income. I focused on writing new articles, and Google took care of selling and serving up the thousands of ads that were displayed each day. It was […]

How to Make Money From Your Art

Sunday, October 30th, 2011

Is it possible to enjoy a financially abundant living as an artist (the word artist being used in the most general sense)? Or is this simply an unrealistic dream? Of course it’s possible. Many people have done it before. But is it realistic for you? Well… that depends. The honest answer is: probably not. What it […]
