I want to create a website as I want a passive inocme and owning a website seems the most attractive form of it for me. Generally speaking, Steve is an example to me in this field (though I don't strive for such a large activity and influence so far).
The is a bad example because he isn't a person who started a website to make passive income.
He's motivated by his message and therefore authentically creates value, he also had multiple years of experience with selling over the net before he started his blog.
Most people who succeeded online want more than just making passive income. Eban Pagan (Get Altitude, Wake Up Productive etc) said that those people who go online with the intent of making passive income mostly never do as the kind of person who succeeds through their own motivation usually isn't interested in the dream of passivity.
That said maybe SBI is the right thing for you. It helps you with clarifying a topic and also gives you a step by step process.
