    Is passive income really hard work in the beginning?

    I work full time during the week and have a family of two kids. Basically there is about 3-4 hours every working day to do passive income work. I`m in bed by 12am/1am most night now. By Friday the energy levels lights show empty.

    Yes it is, because you have to establish a foundation first, depending on what your financial situation is you have to actually put in some work before any results can even accrue. But it's worth it, it's always good to see something you did grow and become something huge so keep working !! smile

    I have found two passive income opportunities that do not require a lot of time spent on them. The first one is TextAdBrokers where you just sign up for free, pay $25 for one package of which they give you $10 back in advertising and then you get paid a % of advertising revenue. The only time you will spend after the signingup process is checking to see how much you have earned: go to: to sign up for free and check it out.

    The other one is Just Been Paid, go to my hubpage for full details: … online-now

    Hope this helps!

    Passive income that does not require any work or very little work from you must come with a catch or everybody would be doing it.  The catch will be different for different types of passive income sources but would generally be one of the following:

    - A large amount of initial effort would be needed.
    - A large amount of money, contacts or resources are needed.
    - A special talent is needed.

    No, passive income is not necessarily hard work in the beginning. I put money to work for me in shares with monthly dividends. I started with as little as 100$ and I used the compounding interest effect to grow my money.
    You can do it to at or you can read one of my hubs related to this subject at  .
