      Thank you for going into the specifics of these different models. It definitely is helping me figure out where to put more effort into what I’ve already been doing.

      You helped me make my first dollars in passive income years ago with an eBook! I would love to create a physical book and I’d also like to make courses one day. The only thing I’d question is how passive some of these are when you can’t get afford a team or just want to stay small…! Great video.

        I know a guy who makes a living off affiliate marketing on websites he built and now they are basically on autopilot (20 hours/week). His sites have visitors from all over the world and all day all night they keep coming (from search engines, Google, Bing, Yandex). It is a real-life example of “making money while you sleep”.

        I don’t agree with the premise that work is bad or not fun. Work is very relative.

      Pat’s information is worth it’s weight in GOLD when it comes to clarifying how people can legitimately make money online. I was taking notes while viewing this video to ensure that I didn’t miss anything so I can best utilize the points that best fit my own entrepreneurial goals. I especially like the information you shared about the Smart Podcast Player, Event Tickets, and Affiliate Marketing. Thanks for sharing your wealth of knowledge that helps to empower others to also be able to create Smart Passive Income.

        Winner of a video, I’ve been looking for “what is a passive income stream” for a while now, and I think this has helped. Ever heard of – Qonmily Passive Formality – (do a google search ) ? Ive heard some unbelievable things about it and my friend got cool results with it.

      • Ebrima Nyassi December 2, 2018 at 5:39 pm #

        If you’re trying to make an extra 75 – 125 dollars daily this will do it for you: *4NetJobs. Com* You literally can’t fail with this. I’ve been having success from the same method for a while. Thanks. “The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing.”?

        This was great, I’ve been looking for “passive income rental property tax” for a while now, and I think this has helped. You ever tried – Qonmily Passive Formality – (just google it ) ? Ive heard some great things about it and my friend got excellent success with it.

      This was great!

      How many employees do you have? How do you go about finding quality employees?

      Also, did you decide to stop posting income reports?

      I listen to podcasts daily and your’s very quickly grew to my #1. It’s really nice to see how you talk about this topic in such an open and trustworthy way.

      This is only the 2nd video of yours I’ve watched and I just wanted to say that most finance/entrepreneurship advice-givers tend to hold key details close to the check, if you will. This often leaves me needing to seek more information and usually to other channels to find the information I need. Thank you for “sticking your neck out” for us. I have subscribed.

      All of these are quiet interesting. I’m trying to figure out how I can try even just one of these @PatFlynn

      Is it passive income to constantly create new passive incomes? 🙂
