What is passive income?

What is passive income?

Passive income is money you earn automatically that doesn’t require you to do a lot of “active” work to continue making it. This source of revenue continues after your work (or other effort you have to put in) is complete. Let’s say, you’ve got a part time job at a restaurant. You have to actively put a lot of time into your job in order to receive your monthly paycheck. When you decide to reduce your weekly hours at the restaurant or to quit your job, it will reduce your income immediately. Creating a passive income is a great way to help you generate an extra cash flow and to still have an income, even though you decide to reduce your hours or to quit your job. Sounds pretty great, right?
