Loading Passive Income Lifestyle Resources

Dear readers and visitors: we are in midst of porting NigelChua.com to another platform - come back on 20th November - we should be live by then =)

I run experiments dedicated to building Passive Income Businesses and acquiring Passive Income Investments, so you'll know exactly how to build your Passive Income Lifestyle.

Financially, I’m A Boring Guy (And How We Think The Grass Is Greener On The Other Side)

My best friend, Hendri, is a top-notch AIA insurance agent, and he's been in the business since 2008. And I've always told him I love his business model because:

  • it's low cost (no cost of rental etc, except for meeting clients)
  • it's recurring in nature (as long as policyholders renew/pay every month or year)

He on the other hand, says:

  • he likes my business (rehab) because of its growth nature (we grew from $65 to 7-figure, recurring)
  • his income grows very slowly, more of addition rather than growth-like
  • and that his business entails a lot of admin, negotiations and persuasions, which can be tiring

Hmm, this is possibly the case of “the grass is greener on the other side”

…or just me being a really boring dude when it comes to income, because I really like the predictable, sustainable and recurring nature of his insurance income.

When income is so predictable, life becomes very nice, comfortable and predictable, according to my thinking.

And since I strongly believe in insurance (I have bought enough for my whole family to be fully covered for life and have used them before), I have thought, many times, to be an insurance agent. Part time or full time. Often, it's the amount of admin that makes me cringe and re-think like 100000x.

I'll keep mulling over it. I still like my internet business…but I hadn't had enough breakthrough ie > $1000/month.

Edited 7/5/2017: at this point in time, I am not ready to go into becoming an insurance agent, though I share about insurance with all my patients and advise them accordingly. If I ever do join an insurance company, it needs to be a very established one where I direct my insurance clients to them to handle everything because I can only ever do on a part time basis. I will not rule out later, but not is likely not a good time.

    1. Hey bro, thanks for commenting – yeah man, I’ve decided right now that being an insurance agent isn’t my cup of tea/not for me at this point in time – need to be dedicated/or have dedicated support team, can’t really do part time 1-man show one…but thanks for sharing with me what you do, and man – it’s HARD WORK!!!! Thank you for being so zai as AIA agent
