    I made a bet with one of my frat brothers that I could reach financial freedom (making enough money from passive income to cover living expenses) by June 6th of next year. I started a Hub series on it, and in the latest entry, I detailed my plan of reaching my goal of $2,000 a month by the deadline. You can find that here: … -freedom-2

    I wanted to ask if anyone here on Hub Pages had already reached financial freedom, or if they know of anyone personally who is able to live off of passive income. And if so, how did you / they do it?

          Lol, you are the one with the blueprint.

          Like you though, I too am on the same quest. After around 3 posts in one forum I've made around $100 in 3 months through one referel program which I have just written a hub about. I have recently been using another program which has proven to be even more beneficial which has brought in close to $200 in the same period of time. Both can be found here on my hub at

          Hope it helps.

          Good Luck!

            As I stated above, I do have financial freedom, and an income of, lets say, $2000 and 20 cents per month, and it is all passive income; the 20 cents being from hubpages and the rest from elsewhere. And it only works for me because I live in a country with a low cost of living, and my house is paid for.
            In many places, $2'000 per month does not go very far!

            Lol, it's more of a progresss report than a blueprint. And I'm constantly adjusting it to make it better. Besides, blueprint sounds better. big_smile But thank's for the resource, I'll check it out.

    No sad But I have a deep seated greedy desire to chuck my job and work from wherever I choose to be evermore.

    I need to learn some things first.

    I'm working on reaching my goal of financial freedom. I think in a year or two I will reach that point. Lately I've been able to make $1,000 a day from trading a $15,000 account smile Started out with $5,000 deposit back on 09.18.09 and its now at $17.3K or over $12,000 of profit.

    nope not yet, and far from it i guess
    for some kind of reason i just can't concentrate anymore on my targets.
    i really need to make a plan like you misthaven, but i think because i lost my job, i am now more occupied with finding another one and being able to pay the bills, and all of that, before i start out again, or so i think.

    I suffer a bit from info overload and to much work, i am making my own e-course with books, video's and audio's, websites, i make blogs for people, often i just don't find the time anymore to concentrate on the marketing part and trying to grow my business.

    Misthaven, glad you're back though

    Buy gold! It's the only thing that's going to be worth anything soon!

      Pop Blues:

      I admit to being a gold bug since 2002.  However, I am not so sure now.  Any move up in gold will probably be caused by inflation worry.  But prices may not follow, because no matter how much money is printed, the big deal is getting it out into the economy.  My guess is that the reluctance of most people to take on any more debt will slow price increases for a while, so the US$ will stay pretty much where it now is.

      Also, don't expect a government which has the power to call gold in to let us peasants cash in on big increases in gold prices.  You might be interested in my hub, "Financial Musings" and also consider silver coins.
