Updated on July 31, 2019

What Is Passive Income?

What if money works for you? Or what if I say all you have to do is sit and relax and feel the dollars coming into your account?

Interesting right! Yes, it is possible to earn money while you are sleeping. And this is what most of the rich do. They put in money and then watch money doing the job for them. And the books term it as The Passive Income Method.

Passive income can be defined as the revenue that you earn when are not actively exchanging your time for money. Instead, you work on something to give it a start and then, you can just go on for a vacation. You will still be able to see the flow of money into your account for the work that you have done.

Don't work for money instead let money work for you.
